That's right.. $16 Billion dollars! That is the amount of Federal Grant Money, the Trump Administration sent to the city of Baltimore in 2018 alone.

Federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administrator Lynn Patton wants to know what the hell happened to all that money!

Lynne Patton, a HUD regional administrator, went off on “crooked” Baltimore politicians and activists such as the Rev. Al Sharpton.

“President Trump has given $16 billion in 2018 alone to Elijah Cummings’ district in federal grants,” Patton said.

“We have given more money in homeless funds to Baltimore in the last administration,” she continued. “We have given more in community development grants than the last administration to Baltimore.”

“My question to you guys is this: What are you actually doing with the money so that it actually benefits residents in the community for once instead of deep-pocketed, crooked politicians?”
Excerpted from: www.westernjournal.com...

The Baltimore annual budget is $4 Billion. The city received $16 Billion from U.S. taxpayers. The $12 Billion excess is....where?

City officials aren't saying where the money was spent, or invested. Since Congressman Elijah Cummings' net worth has mysteriously skyrocketed in recent years, it's not likely that he will order an investigation.

Looks like it will be up to some division within the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate and determine if Baltimore is infested with corruption, or fraud, or incompetence, or all 3. I sincerely hope that Attorney General William Barr will order that investigation.

He certainly is not the only one with a double lip lock on the tax payer Teat !

The corruption is so deep in so many places you would drown or be JFKed if anyone got really serious about what really goes on.

I suppose as long as most Americans feel good about their own personal finances, they don't assign a high priority to getting rid of corruption, and theft of their tax dollars.

Yeah, that'd be right. What Trump done was racist right?

Where's the media on this? Unless?

Kind regards,

The more excess one has, the more greed ridden and callous one tends to be.

This doesnt add up at all. And your source isnt credible. This sounds made up, where is the proof?

Over the last five years, Baltimore has received $903 million in federal grants for operating and capital expenses, according to city budget documents. Over the same period, the federal government also provided $1.1 billion to the Housing Authority of Baltimore City, according to USASpending.gov.

Cummings’ more expansive congressional district received just under $15.7 billion in grants, benefits and contracts from the federal government over the past two fiscal years, according to the federal government website. The district includes parts of the city of Baltimore, as well as areas of the counties of Baltimore and Howard.

But federal inspectors general have not flagged billions of dollars in fraud and waste.

THIS:


This will lead back to Obama's HUD. Dr Carson stated in his presser in Baltimore that there was no CFO for 8 yrs at HUD.
He just completed the audit of HUD.
POTUS & Dr Carson know the truth.
So much money was siphoned at HUD this will surely break open a huge Can of Worms. #HUD

Not the least bit shocking. Most of Government and business is corrupt. The easiest way to lose is to be honest and ethical.

If anyone thinks it's just a coincidence between the fact that Obama had no financial oversight for HUD/Ben Carson's, just completed, AUDIT of HUD...and President Trump's Tweets about Baltimore...they're ignoring the obvious.

That's interesting. That's about the same figure Puerto Rico received (or rather, was approved for - in the same year).

Although, that being said, it was in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria...

Hopefully an oversight investigation is taking place. Even the mayor of Baltimore ran away and hid, a few months back. I remember the headlines about that.

I wonder how much money the entire state of Texas received when the hurricane devastated their coastal cities, about 2 years ago?

Maybe Baltimore was declared a disaster area too, but for other reasons?

I think a thorough investigation should be done on how the money was spent. that is a lot of money. I would say there was a lot of that money spent on overpriced projects that do little for the poor.

This has nothing to do with color, other than that people of color that are poor are getting ripped off overall more because there are more of them. It is about crooked politicians and also some business people who are ripping off the taxpayer and the poor because of overcharging..

No doubt.

Same goes for business, divorce, relationships, friendships, etc.

Unscrupulous and rotten people win. Why? The Feds promote it. And if you’re “taking the high ground” or “playing by the rules” you’ll be beat by someone who doesn’t have any sense of morality or ethics - but puts on a good show to “play the victim”, feign ignorance or mold public perception to make them believe they are great.

Never trust someone who doesn’t have enemies - it means they never took a stance on something.
