Camerota began the Democratic propaganda by claiming that “there's growing backlash after President Trump rolled back an Obama-era rule meant to combat segregation.” What she meant by “growing backlash” was far-left activists opposing Trump’s move.
Conservatives, including Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, have long opposed the AFFH. They opposed the policy because it enabled the federal government to bypass local governments and homeowners by charging the federal government with planning their neighborhoods for them. The policy increased local taxes by requiring towns to build larger water and sewer lines, add mass transportation, and increase school sizes and social services. Stanley Kurtz of the Ethics and Public Policy Center wrote that the policy perverted the intention of 1968 Fair Housing Act through “federal overreach on steroids” which “nullifies the very idea of legislative democracy.”
Johns then launched into an attack on alleged racist behavior by Trump in the 1970's:
Yeah, Alisyn, so this is the Trump administration getting rid of an Obama-era administration rule that goes back to 2015, to get rid of housing discrimination, the kind of housing discrimination, by the way, the President and his father were accused of engaging in, all the way back in 1973.
