Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is giving President Trump rare praise for his approach to homelessness.
According to The Daily Wire:
Last week, the usually anti-Trump Arnold Schwarzenegger publicly thanked the president for his efforts to address the burgeoning homeless crisis in California.
At an event hosted by the University of Southern California (USC) last week, titled “Unhoused: Addressing Homelessness in California,” the president sent Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson to attend, prompting Schwarzenegger’s gracious reply on social media.
“Everyone knows [President Trump] & I have our disagreements,” tweeted the former California governor. “But I want to thank you for sending [Secretary Carson] to our homelessness summit. We’ll only solve this if everyone works together. This issue is bigger than all of us. Now it’s time for action.”
During his address at the homeless symposium last Thursday, Ben Carson said that bipartisan steps should be taken to combat the California homeless crisis and outlined the Trump administration’s plan to call on “every church, synagogue and mosque” to take care of the homeless.
Schwarzenegger has claimed that the homeless crisis was ignited by a lack of affordable housing in the state.
