Blue States take pride in their concern about the environment. They make a big deal about climate change and “going green,” so it is going to come as a shock to Californians as Trump is about to sic the Environmental Protection Agency on them for pollution.
“There’s tremendous pollution being put into the ocean because they’re going through what’s called the storm sewer that’s for rainwater,” Trump said. “And we have tremendous things that we don’t have to discuss pouring into the ocean. You know there are needles, there are other things.”
“It’s a terrible situation — that’s in Los Angeles and in San Francisco,” he continued. “And we’re going to be giving San Francisco, they’re in total violation, we’re going to be giving them a notice very soon.”
Trump said the notice would come from the EPA, but did not elaborate.
“We can’t have our cities going to hell. These are great cities. And we can’t lose our great cities like this,” he said.
An EPA spokesperson declined to comment, citing the agency’s practice on discussing potential enforcement actions.”
“The city has long struggled with problems of human waste and needles on the streets in the Tenderloin district, where many addicts and homeless people are found. The city set up public toilets and last year announced formation of a special six-person “poop patrol” team to clean up the human waste.
The city also announced funding to hire people to pick up used needles, the Associated Press reported. The city’s health department hands out an estimated 400,000 clean syringes a month under programs designed to reduce the risk of infections like HIV that can be transmitted to people who share needles, the news service reported.”
Trump is right to go after California they are frivolously spending tax dollars while their cities are going to poop and there is literally fecal matter on the streets. Trump should be shaming these Liberal leaders who are not doing their jobs. We are not a third world country, we should be able to keep our cities clean and people off the streets. And an EPA Violation is just the mark of shame that these Liberals need to wise up and do something.
