President Donald Trump on Saturday went after New York and California’s homeless issues, suggesting the state’s governors should "call and 'politely' ask for help," if they couldn't handle the problem.
"California and New York must do something about their TREMENDOUS Homeless problems. They are setting records!" he tweeted.
"If their Governors can’t handle the situation, which they should be able to do very easily, they must call and 'politely' ask for help. Would be so easy with competence!" the president continued.
Trump also slammed California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Christmas Day, saying the Democratic lawmaker had "done a really bad job on taking care of the homeless population in California. If he can't fix the problem, the Federal Govt. will get involved!"
The president also took aim at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose district includes San Francisco, tweeting that the city has "rapidly become one of the worst anywhere in the U.S. when it come to the homeless & crime. It has gotten so bad, so fast - she has lost total control and, along with her equally incompetent governor, Gavin Newsom, it is a very sad sight!"
California’s homeless population last year was almost 130,000, nearly one-quarter of the national total, according to data published by the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness.
