Trump Administration to Punish San Francisco for Homelessness

The Trump administration is expected to hit San Francisco with environmental violations for its homeless problem.

According to Town Hall:

The Environmental Protection Agency is expected to hit San Francisco with a notice of environmental violations related to the homelessness problem in the city.

“There’s tremendous pollution being put into the ocean because they’re going through what’s called the storm sewer that’s for rainwater,” Trump told reporters Wednesday on Air Force One. “And we have tremendous things that we don’t have to discuss pouring into the ocean. You know there are needles, there are other things.”

“It’s a terrible situation — that’s in Los Angeles and in San Francisco,” he added. “And we’re going to be giving San Francisco, they’re in total violation, we’re going to be giving them a notice very soon.”

Trump, who was returning from a two-day fundraising trip to California, said the city must clean up the problem. 

This announcement comes after President Trump revoked the waiver for auto emissions in California.
