Trump’s Housing Hypocrisy 7.4.2017 American Prospect
AP Photo/Jeff Roberson New, federally subsidized housing under construction in St. Louis.  President Trump is a housing hypocrite. He owes his wealth to government-subsidized housing programs. Since January 20, he’s been living in subsidized housing. Yet his proposed budget slashes housing aid to Americans who need it the most—seniors, veterans, people with disabilities, and families with children struggling to get by. Trump is wealthy today because of government housing subsidies. While still a young man, he inherited his father Fred’s real-estate empire, worth tens of millions of dollars. The senior Trump made his fortune by building middle-class housing financed by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). In the 1930s, Fred Trump built single-family homes for middle class families in Queens and Brooklyn, using mortgage subsidies from the newly created FHA in order to obtain construction loans. After his real-estate business fell on hard times, he revived his firm during World War II by constructing ...

Utah landlords cash in on federal money with questionable rentals 4.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
In Salt Lake County, landlords get top dollar for federally subsidized rentals that often provide less-than-stellar living conditions. Federal guidelines require inspections to ensure landlords can’t scoop up tax dollars unless their rentals are up to all local building, safety and health codes. That continues to be a challenge for The Road Home, which administers federal funding for the Rapid Rehousing and Section 8 Housing programs. Matt Minkevitch, executive director of The Road Home, insists...

Cacti, Foxes, Solar Panels, and Other Bids to Unmake Trump's Wall 31.3.2017 Mother Jones
This story was originally published in Reveal . Of all President Donald Trump's promises, his signature wall along the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border has drawn especially creative opposition. Mexicans formed a human barrier in protest. Architects drafted a design for a powerful 1,000-mile energy-generating barrier outfitted with solar panels and wind turbines. And then there's Sarah Zapolsky and her friend April Linton, two Washington, D.C.-area social scientists. Their quaint concepts include a wall of cacti and a barrier of affordable homes. But they had more in mind than quirky commentary. Their ideas are part of a quiet, slightly subversive strategy. A bureaucratic pothole for the border speed bump. Call it guerrilla bidding. The two women are federal employees who know something about government contracting—and how to potentially gum it up. Zapolsky, who gives her age as "old enough to know better," works at the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Linton, 56, is at the State ...
