Trump takes action to pull federal funds from NYC, other cities that ‘permit anarchy’

President Donald Trump has ordered federal agencies to find ways to “defund” cities that have permitted “anarchy” amid the ongoing riots in the U.S., according to an exclusive report from the New York Post.

What are the details?

“My Administration will not allow Federal tax dollars to fund cities that allow themselves to deteriorate into lawless zones,” the president wrote in a memo to agencies, according to The Post. “To ensure that Federal funds are neither unduly wasted nor spent in a manner that directly violates our Government’s promise to protect life, liberty, and property, it is imperative that the Federal Government review the use of Federal funds by jurisdictions that permit anarchy, violence, and destruction in America’s cities.”

New York City, Washington, D.C., Seattle, and Portland are targeted in the report, and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s name is invoked twice. De Blasio has repeatedly asked the federal government to bail out his city citing revenue losses due to COVID-19 lockdowns after he pulled roughly $1 billion from the NYPD budget at the request of protesters amid soaring crime rates.

President Trump’s memo reportedly calls out the cities for “failed leadership” as rioters have burned businesses, threatened officials (including the mayors themselves) and incited violence. He added, “As a result of these State and local government policies, persistent and outrageous acts of violence and destruction have continued unabated in many of America’s cities, such as Portland, Seattle, and New York.”

The president’s move comes after he has repeatedly offered federal law enforcement assistance to Democrat-run cities who have rejected his offers while leaders simultaneously acted to steer funds away from their own police departments amid the unrest.

One unnamed senior administration official told The Post, “taxpayers shouldn’t foot the bill for local politicians’ dereliction of duty.” The person added, “President Trump is ensuring taxpayer dollars are not wasted by lawless mayors.”

Anything else?

Protests devolving into violence have plagued cities across the U.S. since late May following the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in police custody in Minneapolis.

Democratic politicians largely supported the protests in the beginning and marched in solidarity with organizations such as Black Lives Matter, with some even egging on the unrest. But as the destruction has started to impact polling numbers, Democrats — including Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden — have started clarifying their messages, adding that violence is not warranted in the demonstrations for justice.

Meanwhile, President Trump has repeatedly called for “law and order” as a campaign platform for his reelection bid.

The Best Ways to Prevent A Coronavirus Infection

Right now, the focus of SHTFPlan.com is to make sure all readers are as UPDATED as possible on the Covid-19 pandemic. Download our EXCLUSIVE report immediately at: http://www.shtfplan.com/virus

Instead of panicking like the rest of the United States, take the time to understand how you can prevent the coronavirus.  There are a few small things you can do that will have a major effect and minimize your chances of getting the virus.

Minimize Contact

This just means you should avoid people who are infected.  If you live in an area that’s experiencing an outbreak, consider wearing a facemask in public. Choose a mask that fits tightly to your face and offers a minimum of N95 protection. These masks will help protect you 80% of the time, which is certainly better than nothing.

Do your shopping online if you can.  Fresh vegetables and fruits will be difficult to get delivered, but some larger cities do offer this.  Shopping online is one way to reduce your contact with others during the outbreak.  Although it’s peaked and almost over in China, the U.S. may not have reached peak infections just yet. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

Prepper Foods and Supplies to Survive Coronavirus Without Leaving the House

Cover your coughs and sneezes too by burying them in the elbow.  If you have a tissue available, use that and toss it in the trash immediately. If you sneeze into your elbow, make sure to completely cover the mouth and nose to prevent as many droplets as possible from getting in the air. At the end of the day, wash your clothes in warm soapy water to eliminate the viruses.  They likely won’t be active still, although they can be.  Viruses can live 8-12 hours on porous surfaces such as clothing. 

Wash Your Hands

Improving your handwashing will help dramatically reduce your chances of getting sick from colds, the flu, and the coronavirus.  Wash your hands with warm soapy water for at least 20 seconds.  Wash up toward your wrists and get between your fingers. Teach your children to wash their hands well too.  Make sure you wash your hands before you eat, touch your face, eyes, nose, or mouth, and obviously after you use the bathroom. This really does work to keep you healthy and it’s pretty simple to start doing if you don’t already.

Disinfect Surfaces

Make sure you take the time to disinfect surfaces such as doorknobs and remote controls. Do this several times a week, if not daily. Viruses can live in the air for up to 3 hours (after a cough or sneeze from an infected person) and for 2 to 3 days on stainless steel and plastic surfaces, according to a preprint posted Tuesday on medRxiv.  Past studies have shown common household disinfectants, including soap or a diluted bleach solution, can deactivate coronaviruses on indoor surfaces. Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses with a protective fat layer. Disinfectants will tear apart that fat layer which makes coronaviruses “fairly wimpy” compared to noroviruses and other common viruses that have a more robust protein shell.

Just doing these three things will massively reduce your chances of getting sick in general, let alone cathing the coronavirus. General improvement in handwashing, cough and sneeze hygiene, and home disinfecting can go a long way as far as prevention is concerned.

But if you or a family member does get sick, be responsible and don’t spread it to others. Learn how to self-quarantine and stop the spread of the virus.
