NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – President Trump slammed Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio for the “TREMENDOUS Homeless problems” in the state and city, saying they should "politely" ask him for help.
Trump sent out multiple tweets Saturday in which he attacked New York and California over their homeless populations.
“California and New York must do something about their TREMENDOUS Homeless problems. They are setting records! If their Governors can’t handle the situation, which they should be able to do very easily, they must call and ‘politely’ ask for help. Would be so easy with competence!” Trump tweeted Saturday morning.
It's unclear what records he was citing, but in 2018 a record 133,284 individuals spent at least one night in a New York City shelter, which was an increase of 61 percent since 2002, when the figure was 82,808, according to the Coalition for the Homeless.
Hours later he followed that tweet up with: “So sad to see that New York City and State are falling apart. All they want to do is investigate to make me hate them even more than I should. Governor Cuomo has lost control, and lost his mind. Very bad for the homeless and all!”
Mayor de Blasio responded to the tweets.
