TRUMP TO NEWSOM: Clean Up California Homeless Crisis or ‘Federal Government Will’

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.27.19

President Trump ripped California Governor Gavin Newsom’s response to his state’s escalating homeless crisis Thursday; warning the far-left leader the federal government “will get involved” if needed.

“Governor Gavin N has done a really bad job on taking care of the homeless population in California. If he can’t fix the problem, the Federal Govt. will get involved!” posted Trump on social media.

 

San Francisco officials spent more than $94 million in 2019 to combat the city’s escalating homeless crisis; doling out $250,000 per day to “keep the city clean.”

“Between street sweeping crews, staffed portable toilets and sidewalk steamers, San Francisco spent $94 million — or about $257,534 a day this year — trying to keep the city clean. And while progress has been made, the effort remains a losing battle,” reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

“And while the city and business leaders assembled in Union Square continued their public calls for compassion, privately the same leaders say behavior like that exhibited in the Safeway — while extreme — hurts both retail businesses and the city’s $9 billion-a-year tourist industry,” adds the newspaper.

CALIFORNIA SCHEMIN': Newsom DITCHES High Speed Rail, Says Too Expensive, Won't Return $3.5B

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.12.19

California Governor Gavin Newsom announced Tuesday his government will abandon the state’s highly-touted high-speed rail link connecting Los Angeles and San Francisco; saying the project would likely cost too much money.

“I have nothing but respect for Governor Brown’s and Governor Schwarzenegger’s vision. I share it,” Newsom said. “But let’s be real. The current project, as planned, would cost too much and take too long.”

“The Democratic governor acknowledged critics who want the state to abandon the project entirely, but said he doesn’t want to waste the billions already spent on the project, nor does he want to return $3.5 billion the state has received in federal funding,” writes the Sacramento Bee.

CALIFORNIA SCHEMIN’: Gavin Newsom ‘PARDONS’ Immigrant Felons to Shield Them from Deportation

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.15.19

California’s far-left Governor Gavin Newsom continued his all-out-war with the Trump administration over immigration this week; pardoning former felons and refugees the White House is seeking to deport.

“Newsom adopted a policy of his predecessor, former Gov. Jerry Brown, to use his state constitutional authority to issue pardons to shield immigrants targeted by federal immigration officials,” reports the Los Angeles Times.

“The pardons are an unmistakable rebuke to President Trump, whose fiery anti-immigrant rhetoric and demands for a giant wall along the U.S.-Mexico border have been central to the escalating political feud between Newsom and the White House,” adds the article.

“I’m constantly trying to understand the moment we’re living in, the xenophobia, the nativism that marks the populism of this moment,” Newsom said. “Any of us who are students of history know that it’s not without precedent. It’s not novel. It’s hardly new. It’s very familiar.”

One of the refugees -originally from Cambodia- was arrested by federal immigration agents in March.

The man was convicted for solicitation to commit murder in 2001.

The pardons come just months after Newsom vowed to sue the Trump administration for declaring a “national emergency” along the US-Mexico border.

“President Trump is manufacturing a crisis and declaring a made-up ‘national emergency’ in order to seize power and subvert the constitution,” said Newsom following the President’s press conference. “Our message back to the White House is simple and clear: California will see you in court.”

“President Trump got one thing right this morning about his declaration, when he said ‘I didn’t have to do this,’” said California Attorney General Xavier Becerra. “In fact, he can’t do this… This is a president showing his disdain for the rule of law and our U.S. Constitution.”
