I’d like to start off – and if you’d like to stay for this, you can. Ben Carson is going to say a few words about HUD. And then I think Jared is going to talk a little bit about immigration and some of our plans for immigration. And then we’re going to go around the table.
And if the press wants to stay, you can. If you’d like to leave – it’s like I said the other day: I don’t mind. If you want to leave, that’s your option. You can leave anytime you want, okay?
[Benjamin Solomon Carson Sr.:]
Thank you, Mr. President. And just before I talk a little bit about what’s going on at HUD, I just want to thank you for your incredible courage –
– and stamina and resilience with unwithering criticism, unfair criticism, all the time.
And I would just, sort of, sum it up by saying: Would you rather have a non-politician whose speech is unfiltered, who gets a lot of stuff done? Or somebody with a silver tongue who gets nothing done?
But I thought I had a silver tongue. (Laughter.) I heard that so often. I always thought I had a silver tongue. (Laughter.) But I agree with you.
But, you know, as I told you before, I think God is using you.
Thank you very much.
I really appreciate that.
And you have said that, and I appreciate it. Thank you, Ben.
Now, once again, you know, promises made are promises kept. You said in the inaugural address that the forgotten men and women of this country would be forgotten no longer.
And last December, you took the extraordinary act of establishing a White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council. And I’m privileged to chair that. We have, with us, Scott Turner, who is serving as our executive director, also.
And thanks in part to the work of the Revitalization Council, Opportunity Zones are delivering an incredible dose of energy and optimism and investment into some of our nation’s most economically distressed neighborhoods. And we’re proud to report a great success – this council’s prescription for prosperity. I have to throw in a medical thing there.
Now, Opportunity Zones are home to approximately 35 million Americans – about 10 percent of our population. One in three of them live in poverty. And this prescription indeed requires the coordinated efforts of all the councilmembers, all the agencies. And I want to thank all of my fellow agency heads for the tremendous help that they’ve provided in getting this done.
With unemployment, Opportunity Zones sitting near twice the national average – unemployment Opportunity Zones – forgotten families are just the people that you’ve been targeting.
And over the past year, property sale prices in Opportunity Zones have increased by 20 percent, which is about double the appreciation rate for eligible non-selected areas. So what does that mean? That obviously means that those people who live there and who own that property are benefitting significantly even though a lot of people said, “You’re not getting any benefits.” They are getting benefits. And a massive pool of capital is preparing to revitalize these areas with community and business development.
Now, less than two years ago, Secretary Mnuchin predicted that these Opportunity Zones would draw about $100 billion, and a lot of the pundits said that was way too optimistic.
But today, like so many other milestones this administration has surpassed, you know, we’re already approaching extraordinary figures. For example, last month, the National Council of State Housing Agencies announced that its Opportunity Zone Fund Directory has expanded to nearly $29 billion in anticipated investment.
And – but I might add that Opportunity Zones, for the media, is one of the hottest things anyone has ever done with respect to inner cities and with respect to minorities. It is working out far beyond anybody’s expectation.
