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?”
Congressman Elijah Cummings' net worth has mysteriously skyrocketed
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 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

Trump lied, he lied to everyone. Baltimore doesnt even recieve one billion, let alone billions.
Hes bullying Cummings because hes a Democrat.
What a joke the state of US politics is a circus.

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.

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