President Donald Trump has taken matters into his own hands over the woeful conditions in California, which is rapidly deteriorating thanks to one-party Democrat rule.
While their state government squanders taxpayer money to wage a war against Trump over the refusal to accept the results of the 2016 election, the man who is hated and demonized by their politicians and celebrity royal class has the backs of residents.
Trump has dispatched a team from Washington to examine the explosion of homelessness in the Golden State’s biggest cities, which has helped spawn an explosion in drug addiction, crime and diseases that represent a menace to public health.

Via The Daily Wire; “Trump, Fed-Up With Dems, Orders White House Officials To Combat C.A. Homelessness”:
President Trump, disgusted with the inability of California’s Democrats to address the skyrocketing number of homeless people in California’s major cities, has ordered White House officials to address the issue, according to The Washington Post.
The Post reports, “Top officials representing the White House and the Department of Housing and Urban Development arrived in California this week for a round of meetings. A particular focus has been the ‘Skid Row’ section of Los Angeles, officials said. The president is directly involved with the initiative, officials said, and has asked for updates. Officials representing the Justice Department were also part of the tour, according to two government officials.”
The Post stated that ideas under discussion include “razing existing tent camps for the homeless, creating new temporary facilities and refurbishing existing government facilities,” according to two administration officials.
Trump’s intervention comes following a harrowing report that among the diseases that are teeming in once-great cities is leprosy, something that would have been unthinkable in an advanced nation such as the U.S.

Additional details according to The Washington Post:
Planning also involves officials from the Department of Health and Human Services. An administration official cited the need to act based on concerns about disease and sewage problems affecting the homeless.
City officials gave a tour of the Jordan Downs housing project in Los Angeles on Tuesday to a team that included federal officials from Veterans Affairs, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Domestic Policy Council, the Justice Department and HUD, according to Branimir Kvartuc, spokesman for City Council member Joe Buscaino (D). About six city staffers and six federal officials were on that tour.
A White House spokesman said Trump signed an executive order in June that pertained to affordable housing regulations, and that the administration is continuing to seek new solutions for homelessness. Trump’s executive order created a new White House council on eliminating “regulatory barriers” that White House officials believe increase the cost of building new housing. Developers have said these restrictions drive up prices on housing and limit the supply.
“Like many Americans, the president has taken notice of the homelessness crisis, particularly in cities and states where the liberal policies are combining to dramatically increase poverty and public health risks,” said Judd Deere, a White House spokesman. “President Trump has directed his team to go further and develop a range of policy options for consideration to deal with this tragedy.”
Back in July, Trump sought to draw attention to the conditions in Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home district of San Francisco which is also plagued by vagrancy, homelessness and crime and where the streets are filled with human feces and used drug syringes.
Speaking of failing badly, has anyone seen what is happening to Nancy Pelosi’s district in San Francisco. It is not even recognizeable lately. Something must be done before it is too late. The Dems should stop wasting time on the Witch Hunt Hoax and start focusing on our Country!

As could be expected by the failed politicians who are responsible for the squalor and disease in the first place, many California Democrats are already resisting even as their own citizens are made to suffer.
Voters in California may not be willing to save themselves from the Democrats but Trump who is justifiably disgusted and sickened by the mess on the left coast is going to do what he can to save them from themselves.
