On his way to California on Tuesday, President Trump told reporters that he is considering an "individual task force" to take on the issue of homelessness in California, which he said is "destroying" cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles.
“We’re looking at it very seriously. I’ve spoken to [HUD] Secretary Carson in terms of the housing element. But we have people living in our… best highways, our best streets, our best entrances to buildings, where people in those buildings pay tremendous taxes, where they went to those locations because of the prestige. In many cases they came from other countries and they moved to Los Angeles or they moved to San Francisco because of the prestige of the city, and all of a sudden they have tents. Hundreds and hundreds of tents and people living at the entrance to their office building."
