Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson told The Daily Caller on Thursday that President Donald Trump has directed his office to begin “tearing down” a fair housing rule imposed by former President Barack Obama.

“At the request of the President, HUD will be tearing down the Obama Administration’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule,” Carson said. “In nearly every case, it is a fact that local governments are more adequately equipped to deal with their community’s unique needs than any unelected bureaucrat in Washington.”

He added, “President Trump made a promise to preserve America’s neighborhoods, I am pleased to report that promise has been kept.”

Trump tweeted last month: “At the request of many great Americans who live in the Suburbs, and others, I am studying the AFFH housing regulation that is having a devastating impact on these once thriving Suburban areas. Corrupt Joe Biden wants to make them MUCH WORSE. Not fair to homeowners, I may END!”

HUD spokesperson Brad Bishop told Politico on Wednesday: “Secretary Carson is ripping down the 2015 Obama AFFH rule, as this is the best way to preserve community and neighborhood choice. Washington is never in tune with the American people's needs like those at the local level.”
