President Donald Trump echoed recent claims that Democrats want to "abolish the suburbs," while speaking in Midland, Texas on Wednesday. (July 29)
DONALD TRUMP: The radical left wants to tear down everything in its way, and in its place they want power for themselves. They want power. Hard to believe. Power. They want to uproot and demolish every American value.
They want to wipe away every trace of religion from national life. They want to indoctrinate our children, defund our police, abolish the suburbs, incite riots, and leave every city at the mercy of the radical left.
That's not gonna happen. That's not going to happen. And, by the way, I just ended the rule on suburbs. You know, the suburbs, people fight all of their lives to get into the suburbs and have a beautiful home. There will be no more low income housing forced in to the suburbs.
I abandoned and took away and just rescinded the rule. It's been going on for years. I've seen conflict for years. It's been hell for suburbia. We rescinded the rule three days ago. So enjoy your life, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy your life.
