Former President Donald Trump has unveiled his sweeping plan to rein in the homeless crisis in America’s cities, arguing that “once-great” metropolises have become unlivable, unsanitary nightmares.
In a newly-posted installment of the Trump team’s “Agenda 47,” the GOP kingpin stated, “Our once-great cities have become unlivable, unsanitary nightmares, surrendered to the homeless, the drug-addicted, and the violent and dangerously deranged. We’re making many suffer for the whims of a deeply unwell few.”
Trump explained that Americans should not have to endure stepping over piles of needles and waste as they walk down a street in a beautiful city that has changed so much over the last 10 years. The 2024 hopeful argued that the homeless have no right to turn every park and sidewalk into a place for them to squat and do drugs.
As Trump plans to be back in the White House, he claimed that his first consideration will be the rights and safety of hardworking, law-abiding citizens who make our society function. Trump wants to use every tool, lever, and authority to get the homeless off the streets.
“We want to take care of them, but they have to be off our streets,” Trump says.
“There is nothing compassionate about letting these individuals live in filth and squalor rather than getting them the help that they need. We need professionals to help them.”
Trump said he plans to ban urban camping wherever possible and arrest violators of these bans. However, violators will be given the option to accept treatment and services if they’re willing to be rehabilitated. For those who need help, Trump plans to open up large parcels of inexpensive land, bring in doctors, psychiatrists, social workers, and drug rehab specialists, and create 10 cities where the homeless can be relocated and their problems identified.

According to Trump, this strategy will be far better and less expensive than spending vast sums of taxpayer money to house the homeless in luxury hotels without addressing their underlying issues. “This is how I will end the scourge of homelessness and make our cities clean and safe and beautiful once again,” he states.
Trump believes that it’s a tough task to tackle the homelessness crisis in America’s cities, but he’s determined to try. He wants to bring back America and make its cities clean, safe, and beautiful again. As he stated in his speech, “We will do it.”
