Trump on homelessness problem in California cities: ‘Clean it up’ originally appeared on abcnews.go.com
Officials from the Trump administration have met with local agencies and advocates in Los Angeles about the federal government getting more involved in assisting with the homelessness crisis in the state.
President Donald Trump said on Thursday his administration has warned officials in Los Angeles and other cities in California to “clean it up.”
Speaking at a GOP lawmaker retreat in Baltimore — a city he said earlier this summer was “rat and rodent infested” — Trump claimed businesses are leaving Democratic-controlled cities.
“We’re going to fight for the future of cities like Baltimore that have been destroyed by decades of failed and corrupt rule,” the president said. “These are our great American cities, and they’re an embarrassment.”
Trump has made it a campaign issue, saying in August at a Make America Great Again rally in Ohio: “Nearly half of all the homeless people living in the streets in America happen to live in the state of California. What they are doing to our beautiful California is a disgrace to our country. It’s a shame the world is looking at it. Look at Los Angeles with the tents and the horrible, horrible disgusting conditions. Look at San Francisco. Look at some of your other cities.”
A White House official confirmed there was an administration team on the ground in California this week on a fact-finding mission about the homelessness crisis but didn’t elaborate on specific options being discussed.
“Like many Americans, the President has taken notice of the homelessness crisis, particularly in cities and states where the liberal policies of overregulation, excessive taxation, and poor public service delivery are combining to dramatically increase poverty and public health risks,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said in a statement. “In June, the President took action and signed an Executive Order to confront the regulatory barriers to affordable housing development, a leading cause of homelessness. President Trump has directed his team to go further and develop a range of policy options for consideration to deal with this tragedy.”
