President Trump said Wednesday the “suburban housewife” would vote for him over his apt Democratic rival Joe Biden – citing his administration’s efforts to support a Obama-era low-income housing regulation for which he says Biden would “reinstall … in a larger form.”
The “suburban housewife” will vote for me. “They want security and are excited that I completed the long run program where low-income housing would invade their neighborhood,” he tweeted.

“Biden would restore it, in a bigger form, with Corey [sic] Booker in charge, “he said.
He was referring positively to the Housing Period rules, which required local jurisdictions to assess and address racial and economic inequalities, in the 2015 Obama era. The Trump administration suspended the rule and last month moved to repeal it.
A commentator on the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) website said the goal of the program is to “replace segregated living patterns with truly integrated and balanced living patterns, turning racially and ethnically concentrated areas “Poverty in opportunities, and promoting and maintaining compliance with civil rights and equitable housing laws.”
Biden, meanwhile, has stood by the regulation and promised to repeal zoning regulations that restrict the supply of housing and keep house prices in some areas.
“Exclusive zoning has been used strategically for decades to keep people of color and low-income families out of certain communities,” Biden said in his plan.
His language in his plan is borrowed from a bill introduced by Sen. Booker, DN.J., that would ban federal funding for community development and transportation infrastructure from localities that do not reform their zoning regulations to allow more housing to be built.

His plan will also expand the use of Section 8 housing vouchers, pass laws to prohibit landowners from discriminating against those who pay with vouchers, and create tax incentives to build affordable housing.
Biden’s campaign on Wednesday responded to Trump’s tweet.
“Donald Trump’s presidency is melting away as his failed, divisive, disorderly leadership has cost over 160,000 American lives, tens of millions of jobs and left the United States the most hit country in the world by COVID-19,” the Director of Response Fast Andrew Bates said.
“As he fights in vain to dismember the American people and distract the country from his destructive mismanagement with clumsy, hateful lies, he is further discrediting himself – and proving he was deceived after Joe Biden’s election. a strong running mate he himself said not two weeks ago would be a “great choice,” he said.
Trump has repeatedly used the housing debate in recent weeks to accuse Biden of trying to destroy peripheral communities – rhetoric that his critics have accused of being rationally accused.

“Your home will fall in value and the crime rate will rise rapidly,” Trump said in July. “People have worked all their lives to get into a community, and now they will watch it go to hell. It will not happen, not while I am here.”
