Slumlord president Donald Trump outflanks California Democrats on evictions
Sure, it’s a cynical move. Everyone knows Trump doesn't care about renters. But, depressingly, his ban is a lot more generous than what’s on offer in states and cities all across America.
Donald Trump did a federal eviction moratorium. It’s true. Our abusive slumlord president — through an executive order, now carried out by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention — just made it much harder for landlords to evict tenants because of their failure to pay rent.
As far as things go, Trump’s eviction ban is still limited and narrow.
