Default Trump urges investment in opportunity zones

Great idea to help people in low income areas, but since Trump owns it, it will be a terrible thing to do.

Can't wait to see how the left will spin it.

I thought Trump is supposed to be a 'racist'.

I see the Leftists on this board don't REALLY give a fig about the poor in the inner cities. If they did they would, at the very least, give a to Trump.
Trump has helped minorities more in 2-1/4 years than Barack did in 8.

Unfortunately, we already know how the left responds. When a major corporation decides to build a new headquarters in a severely depressed inner city location, the locals respond with We don't need no stinking 25,000 new jobs or gobs of new economic activity, and besides it's a major company that will not be paying taxes they are not paying now and besides Trump. This from an economics major.

Yeah, I was hoping to get a response from one of our resident lefties, but they would end up having to say something good about Mr. T And they can't do that.

It sure shows how much they don't give a fig about helping the poor.

As of now I don't think there are any further details.

Enterprise zones are not new. They would most likely function much like the Amazon-Bronx deal. Mostly tax relief for a period of time and financial assistance for training new workers. That's generally the most common.
