    Trump Continues Work To Fix America:

    Remarks by President Trump at Signing of an Executive Order Establishing the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council | The White House

    The Council will focus its efforts on Opportunity Zones, a crucial part of tax cuts that we passed last year. Under our new tax cuts, any distressed area that is designated as an Opportunity Zone will receive massive incentives for private sector investment, including zero capital gains tax on any investment held for at least 10 years.

    We’re honored to be joined today by the person who led the fight to include Opportunity Zones in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and that is Senator Tim Scott (R-SC)

    Trump to Steer More Money to ‘Opportunity Zones’

    Mr. Trump told attendees at the meeting that the zones would receive “massive incentives” for private-sector investment. He said the goal of the order was to help “draw investment into neglected and underserved communities of America so that all Americans regardless of ZIP code have access to the American dream.”

    Baltimore pastor tells Trump that city can be 'demonstration project' for his urban revitalization strategy

    “This council will support communities like East Baltimore, where Pastor Donte Hickman is helping lead a groundbreaking project in the newly designated opportunity zone,” Trump said, as Hickman stood nearby. “He’s been an incredible leader.”


    Somehow, This Should Lead To Trump's Impeachment

    None of this is important to Democrat socialists. All that matters is undoing the 2016 election.

    What are the odds that Trump didn't know Hickman's name until moments before that photo op.

    Trump to sign executive order on opportunity zones

    An attendee tells Axios that the EO is intended to "synchronize" federal dollars around loans, grants and other forms of relevant financing for underserved communities (including possible infrastructure funding). It also will streamline applications for relevant federal resources and create a process for addressing regulations that may cause "friction" (particularly environmental and labor regs).

    Something like this might work. Just throwing welfare money at people in devastated hasn't worked, that's for sure.

    Expect Them To Miserate It From All Directions
    Wouldn't Want Republicans To Try Anything That Might Work

    Especially Not Republicans

    Like With Republican Civil Rights Attempts In The 1950's
