REPORT: Trump comments on homeless situation in California
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by YAHOO.COM:
President Donald Trump told reporters on Tuesday upon arriving in California that homeless individuals are ruining “our best highways and our best streets,” and some people have told him they want to leave the country over it.
The Washington Post has previously reported that the Trump administration is looking for ways the federal government can intervene and crack down on homelessness in cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco, where a lack of affordable housing has worsened the problem.
The article goes on to state the following:
According to CNN reporter Daniel Dale, Trump said, “we have people living in our… best highways, our best streets, our best entrances to buildings, where people in those buildings pay tremendous taxes, where they went to those locations because of the prestige.”
“In many cases, they came from other countries and they moved to Los Angeles or they moved to San Francisco because of the prestige of the city, and all of a sudden they have tents. Hundreds and hundreds of tents and people living at the entrance to their office building,” Trump reportedly said.
Fox News reports that the Trump administration has been studying the homeless crisis in California, and that California Gov. Gavin Newsom has asked the administration to help low-income families combat the state’s growing homeless issue (see videos below).
