Trump suggests homelessness is a 'phenomenon that started two years ago' in barely comprehensible interview

    • Trump suggests homelessness is a 'phenomenon that started two years ago' in barely comprehensible interview






























 Emma Snaith,The Independent




Donald Trump has suggested that homelessness is a “phenomenon that started two years ago” and said that he “may intercede” to tackle the crisis.

The US president also implied that homeless people living in the streets of US cities were making police officers sick.

He made the comments in a rambling interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson in Japan, which was broadcast on Monday.

When Mr Carlson asked Mr Trump why US cities including have “a major problem with filth”, unlike Japanese cities, Mr Trump appeared to talk about homelessness instead.

“It's a phenomenon that started two years ago,” he said. “It's disgraceful”.

He added: “You can’t have what’s happening – where police officers are getting sick just by walking the beat,”

“I mean, they’re getting actually very sick, where people are getting sick, where the people living there are living in hell too.”

Mr Trump may have been referring to a Los Angeles police officer who was diagnosed with typhoid fever last month after working in a downtown area with a large homeless population.

“Some of them have mental problems where they don’t even know they’re living that way,” Mr Trump added. “In fact, perhaps they like living that way."

“We cannot ruin our cities. And you have people that work in those cities. They work in office buildings and to get into the building, they have to walk through a scene that nobody would have believed possible three years ago.”

Throughout the segment, it was unclear what the US president was referring to as he did not mention the word “homelessness”.

“When we have leaders of the world coming in to see the president of the United States and they’re riding down a highway, they can’t be looking at that,” he added. “I really believe that it hurts our country.”

Mr Trump said the cities facing these problems “are usually sanctuary cities run by very liberal people”.

“We may intercede. We may do something to get that whole thing cleaned up,” he added. “It's inappropriate.”

Los Angeles has seen homelessness increase by 16 per cent over the last year as the city’s housing crisis intensifies.

Likewise, in San Francisco, homelessness has increased by 17 per cent in the past year despite the tech boom which has benefited many companies based in the city.

In the same fox interview, Mr Trump railed against some of these big tech companies in San Francisco.

“Facebook was against me,” he said. “They were all against me.

“Twitter was against me… I’ve been very good for Twitter. I don’t think Twitter would be the same without what I do on Twitter.”

What a fucking idiot.  I lived in lower Manhattan for a year and a half in 2000/2001 - when Trump lived in the city - and the homeless were all over the place.

This man is a moron and an embarrassment to our country.

Homelessness increased dramatically during the Obama years

"The Housing and Urban Development and Veterans Affairs departments and the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness today announced that the number of veterans experiencing homelessness in the United States has been cut nearly in half since 2010

White House officials said data shows a 17 percent decrease in veteran homelessness between January 2015 and January 2016 -- quadruple the previous year’s annual decline -- and a 47 percent decrease since 2010.

https://dod.defense.gov/News/Article/Article/881729/veteran-homelessness-drops-nearly-50-percent-since-2010/

Or is the DOD website too partisan for you?

"Since 2010, the nation has seen double-digit drops in homeless families (23 percent), individuals experiencing chronic homelessness (27 percent), and veteran homelessness (47 percent). While some states, such as New York, saw increases in homelessness over this time period—especially over the last year—nationwide, the number of people experiencing homelessness on a single night in 2016 fell 14 percent since 2010."

https://www.citylab.com/equity/2016/11/homelessness-obama-trump/508223/

Why do some like making shit up without even doing a smidgen of research making it just sooooo easy to disprove their baseless premise?

and the comparison?

"Homelessness in the U.S. increased in 2018 for the second straight year after being in decline for seven years previously, according to The Wall Street Journal."

https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/421684-homelessness-rates-increase-in-us-for-second-straight-year

So under Trump homelessness is increasing. So much for the supposed great economy. It's great for some, the corporations and top 1% of earners who received a HUGE tax cut for themselves. The average $65 a month the rest of us saved with that tax cut didn't help at all especially when his stupid tariffs increased the prices of standard goods far beyond the $65 carrot on the stick he used to get the least educated on board with his proposals. What a bunch of maroons.

Yup, Trump is spot on:

It increased dramatically "about two years" in the state of CA:

"A recent census found that homelessness in Sacramento County surged 30 percent between 2015 and 2017, to about 3,665 people on any given night."

https://www.sacbee.com/news/local/homeless/article219683635.html

A look at LA:

The US president also implied that homeless people living in the streets of US cities were making police officers sick.

And Trump was 100% right again:

"The I-Team has been exposing uncollected filth, an exploding rat population and fears of a new typhus outbreak in downtown Los Angeles, with an LAPD officer working downtown possibly the latest victim of the disease.

A spokesman for the LAPD confirmed to the I-Team that an officer stationed at Central Division has typhus-like symptoms but has not yet been diagnosed with the disease. Typhus can be spread by infected fleas that live on rats that have been linked to growing homeless encampments.

The disease can cause fever, chills, vomiting and confusion.

Typhoid fever is another disease associated with garbage and sewage, which doctors can confuse with typhus. One LAPD officer is now recovering from that disease.

The LAPD announced late Wednesday that an employee who fell ill at the downtown LAPD station had contracted the strain of bacteria that causes typhoid fever and was being treated for the condition. The LAPD confirmed that a second employee had a lower intestinal infection, but a specific diagnosis has not been determined. It’s unclear where the officers contracted typhoid, though officials said they were not patrol officers. The LAPD appeared to link the case to officers’ work conditions, saying in a statement that “our police officers often patrol in adverse environments and can be exposed to various dangerous elements.”

Typhoid fever is a life-threatening illness caused by the bacterium Salmonella Typhi. It affects about 22 million people worldwide each year, with 350 cases reported in this country annually, usually as a result of their travels to poverty-stricken areas abroad. One can contract Typhoid fever from eating food or drinking beverages that connected with infected people, sewage, or bacteria-filled water.

The NBC4 Los Angeles video of the area shows why the police department suspects that the officer’s work environment exposed them to the diseases."

Not to mention - homelessless skyrocketed under Reagan. I guess when you only read Fox, InfoWars, and Breitbart, you never encounter any facts.

And red states have the highest levels of poverty, far more than blue states.

As far as homeless being worse in democrat strongholds, most cities are more liberal than rural areas simply because people are exposed to so many different types of people and ideas; they're not insular as so many rural people are. And of course the homeless flock to cities; a homeless person isn't going to do too well in East Bumfuck Mississippi.  They go where there are dumpsters and steam grates and shelters and soup kitchens, which often don't exist in Podunk areas.

And conservatives are more likely to have used an entitlement program than moderates or liberals, yet they're always the ones screaming about liberals supposedly wanting all the "free stuff".

"the survey finds virtually no difference in the share of conservatives (57%), liberals (53%) or political moderates (53%) who have been assisted by at least one entitlement program."

If Trump only meant California, he would have said California.  Rather, he pointed to cities in general.

Surely you realize that Trump is not an intelligent person, unlike how you come across.  There is no need to pretend he didn't actually say that homelessness is a phenomena that only started 2 years ago. Probably something he heard on Fox and he was too stupid and incurious to realize what they were actually talking about; but then, he never does any research about anything; he has no intellectual curiosity at all.  My cat has more intellectual curiosity than he does.

 There is no need to pretend he didn't actually say that homelessness is a phenomena that only started 2 years ago. 

You are going to make a semantic argument now, that we always had homelessness, which has only become an open eyesore just recently?   Just like we always had drug addiction, which only became a national epidemic about 50 years ago?

Not in the cities.  As I said, I was in lower Manhattan almost 20 years ago - as was Trump. Atlanta, one week several years ago - the homeless people there would cross the street to accost you for money. San Francisco and LA have become so expensive, and they have temperate climates, so their homeless problem has greatly expanded recently. With Amazon coming to Arlington, I wouldn't be surprised if the same thing happens in D.C.

but I think we can agree on the state of the economy?

The economy was good under Obama, but that didn't make some people want to vote for him. The tariff "crisis" Trump created (and will take credit for fixing if he realizes what he's done) is hurting our farmers.  He reacts, he doesn't think and plan, or consult with people who have a clue. Just like he brought Ivanka to the summit instead of bringing people who could actually have contributed.  I don't want a president like that.

If your cat can accomplish what Trump has, I'll vote for it.

The US president also implied that homeless people living in the streets of US cities were making police officers sick.

Yet there is NO evidence that the police officers you cite got sick from homeless people:

The six officers work in the Central Division station, where a state investigation into unsafe and unsanitary working conditions led to penalties and more than $5,000 in fines earlier this month, documents show...

The Police Department said exposed areas of the Central Division were being disinfected and officials were reviewing the state's "concerning" report that found health violations at the station.

The building lacked an effective extermination program and had "rats/rodents, fleas, roaches, flies, gnats, mosquitoes and grasshoppers," according to the state Division of Occupational Safety and Health's May 14 report...

Dr. Abinash Virk, an infectious disease specialist with the Mayo Clinic, said it's likely the officers were infected through contaminated food or drinks from the same cafeteria or restaurant.

Typhoid is transmitted thru the fecal-oral route. Methinks some police officers need to brush up on their personal hygiene etiquette. And if there were fleas found in the police station, that could lead to typhus since fleas transmit typhus.

I know YOU know the difference between typhoid and typhus, but I'm not so sure some others do.

Is the Donald taking "credit" for homelessness?  It's not something that started two years ago.

Many vets are homeless.  I hope Trump decides to provide (and all of the other homeless people) them with shelter.

“We may intercede. We may do something to get that whole thing cleaned up,”

So what's the cleanup plan?  Is The Donald going to put them in fucking cages?

Many homeless people have mental health issues.  Here's the proof:

I listened to the interview. Trump did not say that homelessness started two years ago. It was in the context oh how leftist policies in these mostly Democrat run cities are leading to increased disease, filth, and crime.

It is absolutely correct

https://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/Los-Angeles-Police-LAPD-Bacteria-Infection-Officer-Salmonella-Typhi-Typhoid-Health-510625741.html

“While combatting climate change remains a top priority for Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom and Democrat Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, the streets of California’s cities are filled with homeless camps, garbage, and disease-spreading rats.

In a throwback to medieval times, Los Angeles is facing an infectious disease epidemic caused by flea-borne disease linked to rat-infested streets. Last October, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued a health alert surrounding an outbreak of flea-borne typhus in the homeless population in downtown Los Angeles.

A month later, Deputy City Attorney Liz Greenwood was diagnosed with typhus, which she claims came from fleas carried by rats that are infesting City Hall and an adjacent building, City Hall East, where she worked.”

I used to live less than a mile from this riverbed which was a popular trail from biking and walkers until the homeless turned it into tent cities where they ran theft and drug rings until finally cleared last year.

I think you'll find that homelessness is an epidemic in most major cities, though more so in temperate climates as mentioned above.  Ditto regarding rats and major cities.  

I find it interesting how you compare the homeless with filth.  Interesting is the only word I could find without getting a violation.  

Theft and drug rings?  Oh for fucks sake.

from a reportedly bipartisan group.........

Homelessness is a growing problem that negatively impacts the nation’s economic competitiveness.

According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) 2017 Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) to Congress,

homelessness in the United States increased for the first time in seven years, and increases in the numbers of unsheltered individuals in the

50 largest cities accounted for nearly all of the national increase.

In fact, on a single night in 2017, 553,742 people were experiencing homelessness in the United States.

Unsheltered homelessness is particularly high in California; 68 percent of California’s homeless population is unsheltered, contrasted with 24 percent in the rest of the nation

"increased for the first time in seven years" according to a 2017 HUD report by Ben Carson and the Trump Administration.

The man is totally delusional. He definitely has dementia, and all the signs have manifested since he took office. 

The wandering around not noticing the car in front of him getting off the plane, his disorientation at several world events like the one with Netanyahu and wandering off the stage and they had to run after him. 

Several times in the White House he has meetings that have been taped and doesn't remember names or cannot remember that someone he just talked about is in the room.

Add all the unbelievable speech slurring and difficulty with word finding, one of the more recent events was the "wardrobe" incident at the medal ceremony.

Trump has displayed classic signs of paranoia that come with dementia. Anyone that has ever had a family member begin to deteriorate knows this too well. He is unfit for office and his terrible family lets him embarrass himself and do nothing to get him help or encourage him to step down for medical reasons.

Would you give me key words or a link so I can google that? It sounds interesting

President Trump talks about the problem with homelessness and filth in large American cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City in an interview with Tucker Carlson.

TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS:  You’ve come to where we are now Osaka or Tokyo and the cities are clean.  There's no graffiti.  No one going to bathroom on the street.  You don't see junkies.  
 
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP:  It's very nice, isn't it?  
 
CARLSON:  Very different from our city.  
 
TRUMP:  Yes.  Well, no, some of our cities --  
 
CARLSON:  Some of our cities, but New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles - they've got a major problem with --  
 
TRUMP:  It's very sad.  
 
CARLSON:  With filth.  Why is that?  
 
TRUMP:  It's a phenomena that started two years ago.  It's disgraceful.  I'm going to may be and I'm looking at it very seriously, we're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now.  But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that 
 
You can't have what's happening -- where police officers are getting sick just by walking the beat.  I mean, they're getting actually very sick, where people are getting sick, where the people living there living in hell, too.  
 
Although some of them have mental problems where they don't even know they're living that way.  In fact, perhaps they like living that way.  They can't do that.  We cannot ruin our cities.  And you have people that work in those cities.  They work in office buildings and to get into the building, they have to walk through a scene that nobody would have believed possible three years ago.  
 
And this is the liberal establishment.  This is what I'm fighting.  They -- I don't know if they're afraid of votes.  I don't know if they really believe that this should be taking place.  But it's a terrible thing that's taking place.  And we may be --  
 
You know, I had a situation when I first became President, we had certain areas of Washington, D.C. where that was starting to happen, and I ended it very quickly.  I said, "You can't do that."  
 
When we have leaders of the world coming in to see the President of the United States and they're riding down a highway, they can't be looking at that.  I really believe that it hurts our country.  
 
They can't be looking at scenes like you see in Los Angeles and San Francisco.  San Francisco, I own property in San Francisco, so I don't care except it was so beautiful.  And now areas that you used to think as being, you know, really something very special, you take a look at what's going on with San Francisco, it's terrible.  
 
So we're looking at it very seriously.  We may intercede.  We may do something to get that whole thing cleaned up.  It's inappropriate.  
 
Now, we have to take the people and do something.  We have to do something.  
 
CARLSON:  Right.  
 
TRUMP:  And, you know, we're really not very equipped as a government to be doing that kind of work.  That's not really the kind of work that the government probably should be doing.  
 
We've never had this in our lives before in our country.  And it's not only those few cities, it's a couple of other ones.  
 
CARLSON:  No, it's a lot of cities.  
 
TRUMP:  At the same time, most of our cities are doing great.  But if you look at some of these, they are usually sanctuary cities run by very liberal people and the states are run by very liberal people.  
 
But the thing that nobody can figure out is do these governors or mayors, do they really think this is a positive?  Do they really think this is okay?  Because it's not.  It's destroying their city.  And it's destroying a whole way of life, and it's not our country.  It's not what our country is all about.
