President Trump has offered to help California and New York with their homelessness problem as long as they learn some manners first.

According to The Daily Wire:

President Trump’s war of words with Democrats over the homelessness crises plaguing progressive strongholds, particularly California and New York, continued over the weekend. The president took to Twitter Saturday to offer some federal help with the escalating problem of homelessness in the Democrat-controlled states, but on one condition: they’ve got to learn some manners.

Trump’s feud with Democratic leaders over the growing number of homeless people in the two highest population Democrat-run states — which has reached a critical point in California over the last year, with some 60,000 homeless people now living in Los Angeles County alone — ratcheted up in recent days after California Gov. Gavin Newsom attempted to shift some of the blame for the growing crisis to the Trump administration.

Trump’s Department of Housing and Urban Development, Newsom suggested, bears some of the blame for the problem. The department is “not serious” about the issue because they are not prioritizing “housing first,” as he believes they should.

 


As highlighted by Big Think, research reported by the Los Angeles Times, paints a grim picture of the state of California, where some of its biggest cities have seen a massive spike in homelessness over the last year. In the city of Los Angeles, the homeless population has topped 36,000 and is nearing 60,000 in the county:

The real enemy of homelessness in these areas has been reported to be burdensome housing regulation, increased minimum wage, and a lack of enforcement on vagrancy.
