One of the main targets that liberals have zeroed in on is the new Housing and Urban Development secretary, Ben Carson.
Critiques of Trump’s pick stated Ben Carson is merely a surgeon with no government experience, and therefore isn’t suited for the position. But Carson just proved all of them wrong with this recent discovery that Obama’s former HUD secretary, Julian Castro, mysteriously missed.
President Trump picked Carson to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development, whose budget grew by leaps and bounds under Barack Obama.
In one of his first acts as HUD Secretary, Carson ordered an audit of the agency. What he found was staggering: $520 billion in bookkeeping errors. “The total amounts of errors corrected in HUD’s notes and consolidated financial statements were $516.4 billion and $3.4 billion, respectively,” the auditors wrote. So Ben Carson was mocked by liberals for being unqualified, yet the supposedly qualified Julian Castro created half a trillion dollars in errors?
These bookkeeping”errors” are likely intentional embezzlement by Democrats who were emboldened to do so under Obama. Now that their crime spree is over, the Democrats are kicking and screaming because this find suggests there are many more government agencies in need of an audit.
Someone is going to pay for this massive waste of taxpayer dollars – the only question is how high does it go? Where was the money embezzled to? Hopefully we can pin the tail on a very important donkey!
Outsiders like Trump and Carson prove that because they are not a part of the swamp, they are just the people we need to keep the government in check. Just think, if Hillary Clinton had won, we never would have known this was happening!
