BREAKING: President Trump Signs Memo to Defund These Major Cities Allowing Rioting
This week, President Trump took a big step toward incentivizing the leaders of some of the cities where terrorists are being allowed to destroy everything in sight.
Some of these cities include New York City, Portland, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.
“My Administration will do everything in its power to prevent weak mayors and lawless cities from taking Federal dollars while they let anarchists harm people, burn buildings, and ruin lives and businesses. We’re putting them on notice today. @RussVought45”

President Trump is ordering the federal government to begin the process of defunding New York City and three other cities where officials allowed “lawless” protests and cut police budgets amid rising violent crime, The Post can exclusively reveal.
Trump on Wednesday signed a five-page memo ordering all federal agencies to send reports to the White House Office of Management and Budget that detail funds that can be redirected.
New York City, Washington, DC, Seattle and Portland are initial targets as Trump makes “law and order” a centerpiece of his reelection campaign after months of unrest and violence following the May killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police.
“My Administration will not allow Federal tax dollars to fund cities that allow themselves to deteriorate into lawless zones,” Trump says in the memo, which twice mentions New York Mayor Bill de Blasio by name.
After the President signed off on a memo to pull funds from New York City, Governor Andrew Cuomo made a threat to President Trump’s life, saying that he “better have an army” if he comes to New York City and “he can’t have enough bodyguards.”
The facts are though, he does have an army and they support him and so does the NYPD.
Here’s one of the new ads that shows exactly why everyone should vote Republican this November so we can get rid of these career politicians who are constantly lying and shifting blame to everyone else but themselves.
