Trump wants to tackle homelessness in California


President Donald Trump wants to address California’s homelessness crisis, which he considers a “disgrace to our country.”

Homelessness is one of the major problems confronting California leaders. A 2018 report from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) showed that the state’s homeless population is around 130,000.

Forty-seven percent (47% or 89,543) of all unsheltered people in the United States were in California, according to the report.
