CRIME/HOMELESSNESS/NATIONAL GUARD: “In his first speech back in Washington since losing a second term as President, Donald Trump… said the government should ‘remove’ thousands of homeless Americans and put them in tents on ‘large parcels of inexpensive land in the outer reaches of the cities’ with ‘permanent bathrooms’ and ‘medical professionals.’ He said the U.S. should ‘execute’ drug dealers, praised how China prosecutes criminals, and called for a ‘return to stop-and-frisk policies in cities.’ If he were still running the country, he said, he would override governors and mayors and send the national guard to neighborhoods with high crime rates.
The former President laid out a dark vision of the country since he left office. ‘We’re a war zone,’ he said, adding, ‘There is no longer respect for the law and there certainly is no order. Our country is now a cesspool of crime.'”
