President Trump awarded a 100 million dollar grant fix Flint’s water infrastructure!
Healing the water in Flint is UGE news!
But the “liberal” media will sweep it under the rug. Why?
There’s 5 problems:
1.It’s helping a largely black community
2.It neutralizes the Trump-hate that “environmentalists”* spew.
3.It shows bipartisanship
4.It highlights President Trump fulfilling his campaign promise to rebuild our infrastructure.
5.It could distract from the destructive Russia/Trump ploy
Obviously, because it would put President Trump in a good light. you won’t be hearing a lot of praise from the Leftist media about this. However, some in the Conservative media are guilty of giving the story a biased tilt.
Fake News alert:
While looking into this, it seemed that conservative publications were giving all the credit to President Trump-very exciting! Certainly President Trump and his EPA deserve credit for approving the measure and doling out these funds.
However, in digging some more, IMOwired discovered that Congress and Obama had signed the grant into law last year. So credit where credit is due.
The Detroit Free Press reported,
Flint will soon start receiving $31.5 million of a total $100 million in federal funding to be used toward replacing old lead water lines, and it will be making other infrastructure repairs with the other tens of millions to follow.
U.S. Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters and U.S. Rep. Dan Kildee, all D-Mich., said this morning that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency had approved $100 million in funding for Flint authorized under legislation passed by Congress and signed into law by former President Barack Obama late last year.
“Today, we have good news for families in Flint who have already waited far too long for their water system to be fixed,” they said in a joint statement. “After a hard-fought victory to secure $100 million in assistance last year, the City of Flint will finally begin receiving funding.”
There’s a really positive takeaway here.
Wonderful things can happen when our government works in a nonpartisan way. When officials put the best interests of the people they were elected to serve first instead of their own personal agendas, we can make tremendous progress.
Dems-please tell your elected officials to get back to work FOR the country instead of insisting on destroying it!
SO happy for the people of Flint, MI. Looking forward to more bipartisan efforts to repair our infrastructure, create jobs, and keep America safe!

* “Environmentalists” is in quotes because too many green organizations have been hijacked and weaponized by Soros. They’ll never see another dollar of mine again.
