President Trump has ordered White House officials to crack down on homelessness in California according to an anonymously-sourced Tuesday report in the Washington Post.
#1 on the list appears to be Los Angeles’s infamous “skid row,” where vagrants will be moved into government-backed facilities. Trump is said to be actively involved in the effort, which is currently under discussion by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Domestic Policy Council, and the Department of Health and Human Services.
One official cited the need to take action due to the “rampant diseases” and sewage problems (a.k.a. so much feces that San Franciscso pays ‘poop patrollers’ $185,000 per year to keep up with their shitty situation).
Among the ideas under consideration is razing existing tent camps for the homeless, creating new temporary facilities, or refurbishing existing government facilities, two officials said. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because the planning hasn’t been publicly revealed. The changes would give the federal government a larger role in supervising housing and health care for residents.
The Post notes that “the talks are fluid and concrete plans had not been reached.”
Given Trump’s recent comments on the “disgrace to our country” of homelessness, along with the “rat and rodent infested” city of Baltimore (represented by House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Elijah Cummings (D) – who’s investigating Trump in several matters), it stands to reason that dinging Democrats for their disastrously run sanctuary utopias will be a key focus going into the 2020 election.
