Report: Trump Wants To Shut Down California Homeless Camps

DAVID KRAYDEN OTTAWA BUREAU CHIEF

 

President Donald Trump is reportedly fed up with the homeless camps that dot the California landscape and wants to move the residents into some form of transitional housing.

The camps are not only an eyesore but contribute to lawlessness. The problem has intensified over the summer and Trump is apparently ready to move beyond criticizing the state’s lack of response to proving solutions, sources told the Washington Post Tuesday.

President Donald Trump is reportedly fed up with the homeless camps that dot the California landscape and wants to move the residents into some form of transitional housing.

The camps are not only an eyesore but contribute to lawlessness. The problem has intensified over the summer and Trump is apparently ready to move beyond criticizing the state’s lack of response to proving solutions, sources told the Washington Post Tuesday.

“Like many Americans, the president has taken notice of the homelessness crisis, particularly in cities and states where the liberal policies are combining to dramatically increase poverty and public health risks,” White House spokesman Judd Deere told the Post. “President Trump has directed his team to go further and develop a range of policy options for consideration to deal with this tragedy.”

The problem is arguably just as profound in San Francisco and Trump took time this summer to suggest in a tweet that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has turned a blind eye to the problems in her congressional district. (RELATED: Homelessness In San Francisco Bay Area Has Gone Amok As Officials Scramble For Answers)

“Speaking of failing badly, has anyone seen what is happening to Nancy Pelosi’s district in San Francisco. It is not even recognizeable lately. Something must be done before it is too late. The Dems should stop wasting time on the Witch Hunt Hoax and start focusing on our Country!”
