. . .in the 5th paragraph the paper admits this started occurring in 2016, that method Barack Obama used to be president:
Prezant mentioned [the FDNY World Trade Center Health Program] used to be docked about half of a million bucks each and every year in 2016 and 2017. Then it crept as a lot as about $630,000 in 2018 and 2019. This year, Treasury has almost tripled its extractions, diverting $1.447 million thru gradual August, in accordance to Prezant.
Does anyone are wanting to remind Sen. Blumenthal who used to be president for this “novel disgusting low”?
Trump administration secretly withholding money from 9/11 heroes if truth be told is a brand novel disgusting low— & that is asserting loads in the period in-between. https://t.co/Myxm3QRtqt

Team Hillary 2016 weighed in as smartly:
You guys actually stole $4 million from the health fund to handle sick firefighters who rushed into the burning towers.
Republican Congressman Peter King is confronting VP Pence about it TODAY at the scream.

So, Rachel, they’re not “proper stealing it” which she would’ve identified from reading the article:
The topline right here is cross passable, however the particulars of this memoir are proper weird.
The Trump Admin has been secretly proper maintaining the money with out telling anyone? Unprejudiced a exiguous more every year? Suitable stealing it? https://t.co/dZlO0TFDFV

Maybe quiz Jack Lew this quiz as he used to be Secretary of the Treasury when it started?
Mnuchin secretly diverted hundreds and hundreds of bucks earmarked to motivate FDNY firefighters who had been sickened during the response to the 9/11 assaults, and he won’t resolution questions about it from the click or Republican people of Congress about it. https://t.co/Ln0T54s7A5
