Democrats fail AGAIN to help the poor people who they pander to for votes at every election. The democrats always pander towards the poor people, giving false hopes of overcoming poverty, and then throw the impoverished back in the hole they crawled out of to vote.
No shock there, right? Typical democrat nonsense.
That’s why it’s shocking and amazing that President Trump stepped up to do, in barely two months, what former President Obama failed to do in several years.
President Trump was able to deliver some much needed and long overdue help to the residents of Flint, Michigan to help them fix the dreaded and disgusting water crisis.
During the 2016 election, President Trump visited Flint, Michigan and vowed to help the people who were subjected to drinking poisoned water for 3 long years under President Obama.
Now, after just 2 months, the good people of Flint are receiving $100 million dollars from Trump’s EPA to clean the water.
Granted, this money has been in the works since 2016, however, it was TRUMP’s team that worked tirelessly to unravel the federal red tape to get the funds to the people of Flint.
And President Trump will continue his ongoing efforts to update Flint’s water system.
That’s America First!

The Environmental Protection Agency awarded Michigan $100 million to help replace Flint’s badly eroded and damaged water infrastructure.
The funding was provided by the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act of 2016 and enables the beleaguered city to replace its decaying lead water pipes. Michigan is providing the required 20 percent match of $20 million.
The fix is part of the Trump administration’s goal of updating the country’s water infrastructure, EPA administrator Scott Pruitt said Friday in a press statement.
“The people of Flint and all Americans deserve a more responsive federal government,” he said. “EPA will especially focus on helping Michigan improve Flint’s water infrastructure as part of our larger goal of improving America’s water infrastructure.”
The funding was initially approved by Congress in December and signed into law by former President Barack Obama, but the EPA had to review and approve how the money was to be allocated. The funding wasn’t officially granted until after Pruitt took over the agency.
Michigan Democrats and Republicans praised the EPA’s decision to infuse money into the dilapidated city’s broken water supply.
“We are excited and very grateful to receive these much-needed funds,” said Flint Mayor Karen Weaver. “The City of Flint being awarded a grant of this magnitude in such a critical time of need will be a huge benefit.”
Michigan officials and Flint residents have been struggling to get the small, mostly black town’s water system up and running after lead contaminated its water supply.
