President Donald J. Trump Is Protecting Our Suburbs and Preserving the American Dream for All Americans

Press Release:



"The suburb destruction will end with us."
  — President Donald J. Trump


    PROTECTING AMERICAN COMMUNITIES: President Donald J. Trump is protecting American communities from excessive Federal overreach and preserving local decision-making.

  • The Trump Administration is releasing a new rule that will further fair housing, while respecting the role of State and local decision-making for their communities.
    • This action will repeal the Obama Administration's Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule, which took away decision-making from local communities.
  • The new rule eliminates the excessive burden put on local communities and gets rid of the top-down approach that dictated zoning for communities.
  • The rule will help promote housing that is affordable, decent, safe, and free from discrimination.
  • Under the President's new rule, localities will continue to certify that they will affirmatively further fair housing, as required by law.

    SAVING OUR SUBURBS: This action ends the Federal encroachment on local communities that threatened our nation's suburbs.

  • The Obama Administration's original AFFH rule attempted to take local zoning decisions out of the hands of local communities.
  • AFFH would have imposed a massive regulatory burden on localities, required high density zoning, eliminated single family zoning, and destroyed our suburbs.
  • This overregulation of our suburbs would have harmed Americans' abilities to work, buy homes, and build lives for their families, including many minority communities.
    • Our suburbs are diverse and thriving communities where the majority of African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans now live.
  • The suburbs represent a vital part of the American dream, as Americans work to build a better life for themselves and start a home for their families.
    • Providing Americans with the opportunity for homeownership is key to expanding opportunity and helping all Americans prosper.
    • Homeownership offers the chance for all Americans to build wealth for their families.

    UNLEASHING REGULATORY RELIEF: Through this action, President Trump is building upon his historic reversal of the Obama Administration's disastrous regulatory policies.

  • President Trump is delivering on his promise to free Americans from Federal overreach, with Federal agencies taking over 7 deregulatory actions for each significant regulatory action.
  • The President reversed the Obama Administration's Clean Power Plan, regulation that would have raised electricity prices and driven up costs for Americans.
  • President Trump stopped the egregious abuse of the Clean Water Act, which threatened American farmers, ranchers, and landowners with endless litigation.
  • The President did away with a ridiculous Obama-era rule that would have banned the incandescent lightbulb, restoring freedom for Americans to choose how they light their homes.
  • The President replaced Obama-era fuel standards with the much improved Safer Affordable Fuel Efficient (SAFE) Vehicles Rule, which is expected to lower the price of new vehicles by $2,200 and make cars cheaper for low-income Americans.
