It would make sense if he wasnt going to sleep in a tent outside.
I'd like to question why would he not stay with them inside? Because that implies to me that he cannot be seen sharing the same quarters as the poor.
But I have to agree with others publicity stunt at it's finest.
If these leaders really cared about the people they would give them freedoms beyond imagination, and rid themselves of hostile acts of any kind.
Until that happens well I wont hold my breath.........

It is obviously a political stunt. He could just as well do it anonymously to provide ordinary acommodation. Whether you agree with his policies or not, things like this do not speak much about his true character, and can even point towards populism.

LOL This guy is no humanitarian, trust me. He is a politician and this nothing more than a political move made to chalk up political points. People who are commending him are playing right into his hands. Most politicians couldn't care less about those in need. With politicians there is always a hidden motive behind their actions and those motives do not stem from some philanthropic desire to help others.
