But the Washington Post report reports that the Trump administration is considering demolishing homeless camps and relocating impartial people to government facilities, trapping elected officials here. had speculative threat or the possibility of concrete, drastic action.
Newsom had dealt with President Donald Trump before homelessness, and a spokesman attacked the president's record saying that California was "ready to talk" if Trump was ready. and discuss "real investment" in housing. Newsom's first budget, adopted earlier this year, has allocated billions of dollars for housing and homeless people.
"[Trump] may begin with the termination of its plans to cut food stamps, gut health for low-income people and scare immigrant families from accessing government services," spokesman Nathan Click.
In the course of events that illustrate the challenges California faces when dealing with a hostile and mercury president, news of possible federal action falls away – puzzling employees – as a Los Angeles employee tours a contingent of the Trump administration, on homelessness.
A day earlier, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, head of state and federal affairs, disclosed a visit from the Trump delegation, saying it was an opportunity for the city to explain "our strategic plan for homelessness and sewerage and hiring Skid Row. "
" They're just not designed and, frankly, they're not a smart corner to know what we're doing, "said Garcetti associate Breelyn Pete during an event at POLITICO.
Other mayors, who competed with the spiked population, said the administration's reported efforts were the wrong approach. San Francisco Mayor London Brad in a statement called for "federal support and resources to build more housing for people living on our streets" rather than "just decommissioning homelessness without providing the housing people need. "
Similarly, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaff – who angered the Trump administration and drew threats of retaliation after warning its residents of an impending immigration raid – accused Trump of" campaigning politically at the expense of our most vulnerable people. “ "We have been asking for federal assistance to tackle homelessness for years, and I would certainly welcome a change in the President's heart on this issue," Schaaf said in an interview with POLITICO. "This will take housing and help – not interruptions."
San Diego Mayor Kevin Falconer, a moderate Republican, was more conciliatory, saying he would gladly accept "additional federal resources to help us move more people from the streets and live. "
Trump addressed the problem of homelessness in California before, saying earlier this year, telling Fox's Tucker Carlson that the federal government could be forced to" intervene. "
This brought a linguistic rebuke from Newsom, who said he welcomed federal aid but was not sure the president "knew what it meant" to float potential interference.
"If advocacy means cutting support budgets to get people off the street, he is very successful in advancing these provisions in addition to large-scale Social Security cuts and Medicare cuts – two things that he promised he wouldn't, "Newsom says in July.
