President Trumps campaign visits to Flint, Michigan gave him an up close view of the deprecated infrastructure of this once booming town. Flint residents been crying out for months for help and now their call is finally being answered!
“President Trump is awarding 100 million dollars to the city of Flint, Michigan!”
The funds are part of the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act, which was approved in 2016 and now being carried out by President Trump. The money was officially awarded on Friday, and will help the city accelerate programs to replace service lines that have leached lead in to the city’s water supply.
Mayor, Karen Weaver said the city is really ‘excited and very grateful’ to receive the aid from the federal government.
“The city of Flint being awarded a grant of this magnitude in such a critical time of need will be a huge benefit,” Weaver said.
President Trump supports making budget cuts to save taxpayers money, but this is an area that he will not touch.
“Under President Trump’s budget blueprint, SRF (State Revolving Fund) remains fully funded, and the proposal provides robust funding for the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act program to finance critical drinking and wastewater infrastructure,” the EPA said in a statement.
Many community activists claim that this situation has been ignored because Flint residents are mostly black and poor. I wonder if those same activists will praise our president for releasing the funds so quickly to help Americans in need.
Since Trump is doing something positive to help the black community, the liberal media will likely ignore it. It’s up to us to get the word out that President Trump cares about ALL Americans, no matter what race they are.
God bless President Trump for taking bold steps to make America great again!
