California Governor Gavin Newsom blamed the homeless crisis on President Donald Trump while speaking to a reporter in the Democratic debate spin room last Thursday.
In the video, Newsom explains that President Trump should take “accountability” to prove he “cares about the largest state in the United States of America” in regards to the major poverty and housing issue the state. When journalist Susan Crabtree asks if he’s conceding to the President, who Newsom hates, he begins to talk down to her, saying that she “may not be familiar with” the strategies that the state of California is working on to solve the issues.

If your solutions are so great Governor Newsom, then why are you calling on the President to solve the housing and poverty crisis in California’s inner cities? Anyone who takes a drive through Skid Row in Los Angeles, West Hollywood, or San Bernardino has seen the physical disaster burdening urban residents. Garbage, needles, and feces pollute the streets as desperate people aimlessly walk in front of cars. Watching these horrific sights will make your skin crawl and shake you to your core.
Newsom is betraying his citizens and sinking to a new low by blaming President Trump for this crisis. These issues are urgent and require immediate action from the state and local government, who need to work with nonprofit organizations to ensure the best quality housing and care for people in urgent need. Sending in federal assistance may help, but may not cater to the direct needs of the homeless in California.
The people who live in these areas and voting are constantly being tricked by the Democrats. When presented with a problem, these politicians are proposing ideas that sound good but will not be backed up by any action. Unfortunately, it will be a long road to get people to wake up to the truth behind their local and state governments. Current leaders in inner cities keep lying to their people by proposing increased social programs and things that seem to be easy solutions to those who are vulnerable. But if these liberal solutions worked so well, how come urban areas around the country are still plagued by poverty and violence, despite decades of Democratic control? People need to start asking themselves these questions, and finally make a change in who’s leading them. Simply because someone sounds like they are going to fix a problem, does not mean they are.
