I have no idea what he is allowed to do. I have no idea if the reserves are such that maybe if much of the country is having a milder than normal season, less funds are required? But's only FEB! Don't hit them yet. Why doesn't he raid the SECRET SERVICE PROTECTION FUND for his hundreds of trips to his OWN PROPERTIES. They are useless and EXPENSIVE. He's been in what 3 years and a month? He has spent 1/3 of that time (not updated this past month for his several trips to FLORIDA) on Trump properties.


Trump reportedly trying to siphon $37 million from heating assistance for the poor to fund coronavirus response

“Because if we have to prevent the spread of an infectious disease, we might as well take the opportunity to make some poor families freeze.”
Critics are denouncing it as an unconscionable attack on the nation’s poor after reporting revealed President Donald Trump has floated plans to shift $37 million away from a federal program that provides heating assistance for low-income families to help fund the White House’s response to the growing coronavirus threat.

The Washington Post‘s Greg Sargent and Paul Waldman reported Tuesday that the White House informed congressional Democrats that it wants to transfer “$37 million to emergency funding for the coronavirus response from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP, which funds heating for poor families.

“After dithering for weeks as the coronavirus spread, the Trump administration has now decided to pay for its belated response by cutting funding for heating assistance for low-income families.”
