You are trying to share the truth with the general public without editing the comments for content and impact. You are a racist!

Kushner’s Baltimore Apartments Infested with Mice

July 28, 2019 at 4:52 pm EDT By Taegan Goddard 149 Comments

“In a now-viral tweet storm on Saturday, President Trump characterized Rep. Elijah Cummings’s Baltimore-based congressional district as a ‘rodent infested mess’ where ‘no human’ would want to live,” the Washington Post reports.

“His criticism rang with a particular irony in Baltimore County, where presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner owns more than a dozen apartment complexes that have been cited for hundreds of code violations and, critics say, provide substandard housing to lower-income tenants… Tenants of Kushner properties reported mouse infestations, mold problems and maggots.”

That's a double edged sword. Slumlord properties rent cheaply. If you force slumlords to rehab their properties, they will have to raise rents accordingly, which will force out the people who currently live there because that is all they can afford. That's the whole principle behind gentrification.


In the end, the poor still have to live somewhere. Push them out of Kushner's buildings and where will they go? The best thing that can be done for those people is to create job opportunities for them, so they can start climbing the ladder, earn more, and live in better conditions. That's what Trump's "Opportunity Zones" are all about. Notice Baltimore hasn't indicated an interest in participating in that program.

Hopefully Ben Carson's visit and the spotlight Trump has put on Baltimore will lead to real help for those folks....a hand up, not a hand out.

I used to like that city, grew up there, lived there, worked there, retired from there, and got the fvck out, I hate that place now.
