Trump is going to war on low-income housing in suburbs. He once embraced it.
Trump's dramatic about-face on the issue came as he began to hammer a "law and order" theme after widespread racial justice protests this summer, lifting a page from the Richard Nixon 1968 playbook.

"This is an attempt to make a law-and-order case to an audience that no longer exists," Dworkin said. "The people who live in the suburbs today are largely going to be embarrassed by these arguments and do not want to be associated with racist housing policies, even when they have reservations about affordable housing."
evergreen NIMBY bloc meets HUD Sec.8 "Housing Choice" rental vouchers seeping into post-2009 REITs inventory. Baltimore city Community Development actually subcontracts NGOs to steer voucher tenants into adjacent county markets rather than rehab inner-city stock with HUD project-based-vouchers (PBV). This bias maximizes private-sector rental prices and RE speculation.
"The 'suburban housewife' will be voting for me. They want safety & are thrilled that I ended the long running program where low income housing would invade their neighborhood," [Trump] tweeted on Aug. 12. "Biden would reinstall it, in a bigger form, with Corey Booker [sic] in charge!"
