The homelessness crisis in California continues to worsen, due to the failed policies and subpar leadership of Democrats. Syringes, feces, and other waste rid the streets while residents who remain in California, and are unable to leave, have to live with it all.
It goes without saying that rampant homelessness to this extent causes problems, especially over extended periods of time. However, California Governor Gavin Newsom seems more preoccupied with other matters than with fixing the horrible condition of his state.
Yesterday, the president took to Twitter, holding Newsom accountable and calling him to act. Trump was also joined by conservatives who noted the tragedy of the Golden State’s present condition. This isn’t the first time that Newsom was called out for doing absolutely nothing while homelessness plagues the state that he’s supposed to serve.
Holding Newsom’s Feet to the Fire
The president’s censure of Newsom came after the latter criticized President Trump’s administration for not acting on “Housing First” to his liking. This is actually quite rich coming from a man whose residents have repeatedly implored him to solve homelessness in their communities or at least take steps to fix it.
First, conservative commentator Tomi Lahren called out Newsom via Twitter; then President Trump followed suit. Lahren suggested that Newsom “step away from the hair gel” and act accordingly to fix the crisis.
In a follow-up to this message, Trump declared that the California governor has “done a really bad job” of reforming the homelessness crisis; the president furthermore noted that if Newsom continues not to act, the federal government will become involved and take subsequent action.
Thus far, the California governor has not directed responded to Tomi Lahren or President Trump; he has, however, ongoingly taken various cheap shots at the president on Twitter prior to yesterday’s statements.
Will Newsom Take Action?
At this point, the likelihood of the federal government having to involve themselves in California’s homelessness crisis is very high. Newsom has had all the time in the world to take action and fix his state, but slamming Trump on Twitter and partaking in other matters is clearly more important to him.
The homelessness crisis in the Golden State, coupled with Newsom’s indifference to it all is the end result of electing Democrats into positions of power. The left talks an interesting game about being for the working class and wanting to help the people; then, when election season is over, Democrats go right back to whatever they were doing beforehand, leaving their voters in the cold.
