Trump administration ousts top homelessness official as White House prepares broad crackdown

A top federal homelessness official announced Friday that he has left his post at the Trump administration’s request, an unexpected move that comes as the White House plans a sweeping crackdown aimed at homelessness in California.

Matthew Doherty, executive director of the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness, wrote in an email to colleagues that the administration “no longer wishes to have me” in the position. Doherty also announced on Twitter that he was leaving at the administration’s request.

“It has been an incredible honor to serve at USICH, and I do feel like I am leaving on my own terms,” Doherty said in an email obtained by The Washington Post. “I believe that I have been able to keep my integrity intact; but, they have now told me to pack my things up and go.”

The Trump administration is still actively exploring options for a crackdown on homelessness aimed at California, a process that has been ongoing for months, according to one person with knowledge of the planning who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share internal information.

I don't have a choice I will have to vote for the Democratic nominee for President no matter what.

3. I don't know if Trump has reality & fantasy mixed up

He thinks homelessness is new or something.

--

Trump told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that homelessness is “a phenomenon that started two years ago” and “We never had this in our lives before in this country.” He told Carlson that he “may intercede and do something to get that whole thing cleaned up.”

10. WTF? What planet does this jackass live on?

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


Given his policies toward immigrants, I hope he has a "SQUIRREL!" moment and moves on. Homelessness desperately needs to be addressed, but not with methods used by this administration. :shudder:
