I haven’t said those aren’t successful cities.  But they do have some very big problems.  Whoever or whatever is to blame, they are there and getting worse while liberals have been in power.  This line of discussion started with the idea that Trump should visit and campaign in California.  After everything that’s been said, it still seems like a good idea imo.

Democrats aren’t going to.  Nothing to gain.

 

OK.  I do have to throw in the towel that it's getting worse with liberals in power.  But as pointed about above it's a recent phenomenon which actually coincides with Trump being in power.  There were declines in homelessness prior to that with liberals in power.  I could spin it another way to suit myself.  

But yes, Trump should visit and campaign in California.  He needs to be attentive to the needs of all the states not just ones that will stroke his ego.  Maybe he can campaign like last time "you guys are in horrible shape, and I can save you.  You're so miserable.  Illegal immigrants are definitely part of your problem".

Yeah, because that message resonated so well, with CA voters last time around.

Trump knows he can't win in CA.

Republicans LOST their last stronghold in southern CA, during the 2018 midterms.

Trumpsters have more spin than Soul Cycle.

😝

I must have missed them.

Please share with me, Trump's proposal to fix income inequality.

A tax cut for the rich, doesn't address the problem.

Especially when the paltry tax cut for the rest of us, will be eaten up by tariffs, on goods from China.

I am truly interested in Trump's proposal to combat income inequality.

Please share!

I don’t believe income inequality was one of the three examples I provided to which you said he has offered no solutions for.

I don’t know that it has been defined here but “income inequality” would imply that both the poor should make more AND the rich should make less.  That is a far leftist idea that most Americans don’t agree with.  It’s not a problem, so I wouldn’t expect him to offer a solution.

He has implemented policies to help all Americans, including the poor.  I shared that thought yesterday and it was meant with (paraphrasing) “typical Trumpster response, I’ll move on.”

Well....

SF and LA combined have had one mayor who wasn’t a Democrat in the last almost 60 years.

Trump has been President for two, and he gets blamed for not fixing the opioid epidemic, gun violence, and immigration crisis.

Los Angeles had Republican Mayor Sam Yorty from 1961 to 1973. 

Los Angeles citizens voted for Republican Mayor Richard J. Riordan twice. He was mayor from 1991 to 2001. 

George Christopher was the Republican mayor of San Francisco from 1956 to 1964.

Three is more than one.

A large part of the housing problem, is the fact that the populations of cities like NYC, SF, Seattle and Boston keep growing, and housing isn't growing.

Thus, driving up the costs of housing.

Few people want to move to Tulsa, OK or Odessa, TX or Topeka, KS or eastern KY.

This makes no sense.

How does Kamela Harris avoid CA?

Looks like you have been reading those dismal poll numbers for Trump.

Yes, you can argue that incumbents have polled behind challengers in the past, and won, BUT, the difference is, those incumbents, such as Bush and Obama, had approval ratings, at one time, above 50%.

Poor, poor, Donnie. The majority of Americans have never liked him, and therefore, his approval ratings have NEVER gone above, what, 43%?

You can't win with numbers like that; in other words, in the toilet.

Yes, Trump can win with those numbers. The GOP  held states will suppress opposition voting and Trump will seek help from his foreign friends. It is doable for a charlatan.

Well, yes, doable via cheating.

Not doable, the honest way.

Just last week Trump lied yet again, when he said the US has the cleanest air, and that it has gotten cleaner, with him occupying the WH.

Actually, the air has gotten dirtier, and less healthy with Trump in the WH.

The AP, analyzed data from the EPA, and discovered the air was cleanest 2013-2016, when Obama was president.

Just more DJT lies.

But who cares about dirty air?

At least one Trumpster in PA, wants to discuss the price of a gallon of gas.

Oh, my!

Of course, more people have jobs to drive to and are able to afford cars and gas than they were when Obama was President.

He was a Democrat until the last year of his last term as mayor. So you are mostly correct. When McGovern became the presidential nominee to run against President Nixon he changed parties becoming a Republican.

After beating Tom Bradley with a blatantly racial campaign in 1969 he than lost to Mayor Tom Bradley in 1973.

PS: I never thought of Sam Yorty as a Democrat because he seemed to hate the elected Democrats. He was against recycling, clearly racist, lied and made things up.

It is as I thought; Trump has an empty tank.

No ideas.

One, very simple stop gap measure, would be to increase the Federal Minimum Wage.

Such a proposal should receive bi-partisan support, as we all know no can survive on $7.25 an hour.

But what happens, each time legislation is introduced to raise that minimum wage?

Republicans throw a hissy fit, don't they?

Looks like anybody who seriously cares about the issues of homelessness and inequality, must vote for a Democrat.
