Well seriously it's not a problem that can be realistically tackled by anyone Man, Trump included.
The real error lies in the way our first world nations treat the weakest members of our society, especially when they have fallen upon hard times.
The homeless person's error lies with the fact that they exist in the situation that they do, forced to or otherwise.
I've been a homeless person does that count?
We tended to share our experiences, woes, problems and dilemmas, nevermind a few bottles of wine and whatever else came to hand. LoL
Trust me when i say its nowhere near as easy to get a flat as walking into the nearest housing association, telling them your name and predicament, and being given a key.
Where you see choices some people simply see insurmountable obstacles.
I was lucky, had friends and family there to help once i and managed to get my head together and my life back into some semblance of normality, a lot of people are not so lucky, a load don't even realize there is any choice in the matter, and the thing is a lot of them are correct as unfortunate as the case may be.
While that does happen, the majority have created their own hard times and will not do anything to get out of those hard times. That is the reality.

Are you willing to give him a shot at it?
Do I have a choice? I don't think deporting the homeless from the view of VIPs is a workable solution. In Hawaii, they launched a campaign to give the homeless a one way ticket to any state they wanted, I don't think that was a workable solution either.
I fear that Trump's solution would be to round up the homeless and put them in work camps. I don't like the idea of people losing their freedom because of their financial state and homelessness.

Well for feck sake let an actual Human being tackle the issue as opposed to Trump.
My bad; I assumed you were being serious. It's more about who tries to solve it than actually helping folks out, amirite?
Thanks for pointing out my error.
