Trump warns Gov. Newsom over homelessness crisis in California

Trump issued a warning to California Gov. Gavin Newsom, threatening federal intervention if Newsom is unable to solve his state’s homeless crisis. In 2018, 129,972 people in the state experienced homelessness. Newsom had blamed the Trump administration over rising homelessness in his state, saying the White House was taking no action on ’Housing First,’ his approach to solving homelessness.

Here's something to raise some eyebrows: Scott Adams mentioned the idea that it might be possible for Trump to flip California in the 2020 election. The liberal elites will scream bloody murder at every opportunity, but turns out CA is a huge state with millions of conservatives tucked away all around the state.

Don't over step the bounds of the federal government. That said the best thing for California is political competition. Put someone strong to take up governor and some seats to start driving the state away from the policies that are causing these problems.

Can you imagine what could happen if someone got the homeless population to give a damn about their own futures and mobilized (militarized?) them? Think of all the hell that could be raised! Too bad crack and liquor kinda spoil that possibility.

California demands $50k in solar panels and commercial fire sprinklers on new homes, then wonders why housing is so expensive. Their solution to homelessness is to make housing more expensive and pay people to live on the streets. If their goal was to eliminate rats, they'd sprinkle cheese and crackers in alley ways.

considering there is an actual app to help people avoid human feaces in the streets of California. I feel the federal government should step in asap and forget the threats.

I visited San Francisco from Canada a few years ago. I was really quite shocked at how appalling conditions in the city were, and just how many homeless, mentally ill and drug addicted people were floating around the otherwise exorbitantly cosmopolitan city. Sad to say that Vancouver, BC is rapidly deteriorating in the same way. What do these two cities have in common? Yeah, it's leftist policies.

California is currently looking at using cruise ships to "house" the homeless. Instead of actually solving their own homeless problem New York City has bussed their homeless over the state line to New Jersey. Hawaii flies their homeless back to the continent. Homelessness is a massive issue in the US but most Democratic-controlled cities and states don't try to solve it and instead just want the homeless to disappear.

California is a beautiful place to live if you are willing to work two jobs the rest of your life. housing shouldn't cost people $200,000 to have a roof over their heads.

Trump wouldn't know the first thing about solving homelessness.

I thought the Republicans believed in states rights? and why issue "threats" instead of "offers" of help? it's a part of the country he's president over.

That's right Jon. It's not more important to solve it than to keep absolute power. Babbling about it a great distraction
