Trump promises to ‘clean up’ LA at the O Los Angeles
Trump promises to ‘clean up’ LA at the Olympic meeting briefing.
During the briefing on preparations for the 2028 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, President Donald Trump veered into politics. He criticized the political leadership of the city for failing to curtail its homelessness epidemic. Trump said that if LA does not manage the mess on its own, he will intervene. He has battled with California’s Democratic leaders throughout his three years in office.
There are dozens of lawsuits filed against Trump administration by state Attorney General Xavier Becerra over environmental regulations, immigration issues and other White House policies. The president in the past has referred to the crisis in the two California cities as “disgusting” and a “disgrace to our country.” Trump is at the start of a four-day visit to Western states that is expected to be a mixing of policy and politics.
