President Trump is in California today and Wednesday. He’s fundraising at private events in Silicon Valley, Beverly Hills and San Diego. There aren’t a lot of details about his trip. But he is likely to address homelessness while he’s here. On Monday, Trump’s economic advisers published a report called “The State of Homlessness in America.” It offered ideas to combat the rising homeless population in cities across the state, including adding increased policing on the streets.
