A 5 day Look at What Trump Means for Homelessness: Day 3

Housing Discrimination and Segregation...

Trump doesn't have a great track record here either. He's known for refusing to rent apartments in his Westminster Complex to African Americans in 1972. Then stop and take a moment to look at just two of his nominees:
  • Ben Carson, nominated for HUD Secretary, called HUD's segregation efforts "social engineering." This is the only housing policy he's ever spoken about.
  • Jeff Sessions, nominated for U.S. Attorney General, has spoken out against judicial nominees with civil rights backgrounds.

On the other hand, Obama has released numerous civil rights regulations that help prevent and end homelessness. Trump will not only repeal these but will take us decades backward in our fight to end homelessness.
