One proven fact can always be said about some people in America. No matter how good you are, no matter what you do for the American people and how much you sacrifice, you cannot please everyone. We, as conservatives, can sympathize with President Trump on this fact. The man has put in countless hours and sacrificed so much just to “Make America Great Again.” He continues to sacrifice to “Keep America Great.” On his two day tour of California to raise money for his campaign, he focused on the homelessness in California personally. Many welcomed the plans for fixing the issues while others, including Governor Gavin Newsom, criticized the president the entire time.
One day the Left will learn to criticize gets nothing accomplished. Action gets results and solutions. Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom of California was not happy about President Trump’s visit to his state. Both have disagreements on Twitter, and the president considers Governor Newsom, “a clown.”
Newsom dared to tell CNN, “He’s got to find the areas where we’re not performing, and that’s the issue of poverty, affordability, and homelessness, and exploit those as a way of tearing down a new governing philosophy. Stay out of our way. Let California continue not to just survive, but thrive … despite everything you’re doing to try to put sand in the gears of our success.” So, even he admits they have a problem with homelessness in Los Angeles and San Fransico. Criticizing is how Democrats work on solving problems. President Trump is there in California and has multiple people there working together to get the problem solved. The president’s actions speak louder than his words, but the snowflakes and the Left do not want to admit it.
California is the United States most populous state and the homelessness has “ruined the prestige” of two of the largest cities in the state. President Trump told the people of California, the federal government will now be stepping up and stepping in to fix the problem. This is what really is making the Governor angry because President Trump can fix the problem, and he cannot and has not. Trump told reporters over Air Force One, “We can’t let Los Angeles, San Francisco, and numerous other cities destroy themselves by allowing what’s happening.”
President Trump told Californians he has Housing Secretary Ben Carson with him along with other federal agencies to assist in resolving the issues. The problem lies with California being predominantly Democrat and resistant to every form of help the president offers. Trump told the crowd, “In many cases, they came from other countries, and they moved to Los Angeles, or they moved to San Francisco because of the prestige of the city, and all of a sudden they have tents. Hundreds and hundreds of tents and people living at the entrance to their office building. And they want to leave.”
He continued, “People are living on the best highways, our best streets, our best entrances to buildings where people in those buildings pay tremendous taxes, where they went to those locations because of the prestige. The people of San Francisco are fed up, and the people of Los Angeles are fed up. We’re looking at it, and we’ll be doing something about it.”
Trump spoke about how police officers are “getting sick” by having to deal with the homeless people living on the streets. He said, “They’re actually sick. They’re going to the hospital. We can’t let that happen.” At the beginning of the year, the Associated Press reported, “A Los Angeles police detective in a division that polices downtown Los Angeles was diagnosed with typhoid fever. Several others in the same station showed symptoms.”
Another Democrat attacked the president for saying what was already reported and proven to be true. Diane Yentel, president and chief executive of the National Low Income Housing Coalition, said, “The president’s remarks are abhorrent. He’s apparently more concerned with the doorways and streets than with the people who are homeless and sleeping on them.” This, of course, we all know this is not true of the president because he wants to clean this mess up, but the Democrats want to wallow in their own filth. He will show them up, and they know it, so the Democrats will continue their attacks.
The truth is, the Democrats are the ones who do not care about the homeless people. If they did, Trump would not be calling in the federal government.
