White House mulls slashing federal funds to cities labeled 'anarchist jurisdictions': report

White House mulls slashing federal funds to cities labeled 'anarchist jurisdictions': report (The Hill)

Trump administration officials have reportedly considered cutting millions of dollars for COVID-19 and other health programs in cities led by Democratic lawmakers that the Department of Justice has said "permit anarchy."

Politico reported late Tuesday New York City; Portland, Ore.; Washington, D.C.; and Seattle could lose funding for health programs that serve low-income residents, the elderly and others, according to documents it obtained. Nearly 200 health programs could face cuts from the Trump administration, it added.

A list sent to the White House budget office on Friday from the Department of Health and Human Services includes approximately 1,500 funding awards that have been given to the four cities since 2018, according to the news outlet.

The list covers 185 programs including everything from an initiative to end HIV transmission by the end of the decade to research into the opioid crisis and lung diseases, Politico noted. The list also includes funding for programs that provide hearing screenings for newborns in D.C. and nutritional services in New York City and more.

1. Because hurting people gets out the vote?

Trump has reduced himself to a pitiful pile of spiteful goo. And no one likes spiteful goo.

3. This is unbelievable

The President of the United States is openly hurting and essentially declaring war on American cities and American citizens, and the collective response is "meh." It is fucking unreal how much shit we have all normalized with Trump.

Just imagine if Biden, or Harris, or ANY Democrat came out and talked about the meth-ridden areas of Eastern Kentucky or West Virginia with the same contempt that the Republicans spew out about the cities of this country. Hillary said the word "deplorable" once and everyone lost their minds.

November 3 can't get here fast enough for me!
