there's no excuse to not get connected. >> shannon: minutes >> a minute ago we had a story about senator cinema, the junior senator, the senior senator serving alongside senator mc sally. a first in california, progressive lawmakers and donald trump committed to wiping out the same problem, homelessness. as the crisis explodes california officials and donald trump are at odds over possible solutions and who's to blame for the root causes. trace gallagher is on the case from the west coast bureau is
12:17 am
the president of the swing through california. >> two days in california donald trump is attending fundraisers in beverly hills, palo alto and san diego. the mayor of los angeles took a swipe at the president saying he should also leave a little something. >> appreciate your coming to take money, hope next time you will bring tax dollars and bring some money to angelenos. time for us to make sure we don't just address homelessness but end it, not just through punitive measures. >> reporter: the la mayor believes the answer to the state's exploding homeless problem lies partly with the federal government, donald trump is known for putting that shoe on the other foot and did so again today quoting we can't let los angeles, san francisco and numerous other cities destroy themselves by allowing what is happening, the president addressed the issue saying he's considering the creation of an
12:18 am
individual task force as a possible solution to the homeless problem but he did not provide details saying he wanted to discuss the topic with housing and urban development secretary ben carson. carson toured a public housing project in san francisco where carson rejected gavin newsom's demand the feds invest more money in section 8 housing vouchers. carson says overregulation and opposite the more housing is part of what is driving california's crisis. san francisco mayor london read says federal support for low-income housing has lagged for decades so it should be noted after a year in office the san francisco homelessness problem is reportedly the worst than in the previous administration. that includes an uptick in the number of homeless reports of dirty needles and human feces. bashing the trump administration
12:19 am
still very popular in california because the president is not. all the republicans snapped oppose fundraiser tickets at breakneck pace. shannon: thank you so much. my next guest can shed some light on donald trump's thinking when it comes to taking on california's homeless crisis. joining me now, secretary of housing and urban development doctor ben carson in la, with us tonight. good to have you with us. a lot of speculation in the media about what the president may be putting together, possible using police officers and other resources to tackle the issue of homelessness, what is the plan, what can you tell us? >> first of all recognize it is a severe crisis in la. and many parts of california because it is not just the fact that people are on the street
12:20 am
but there's feces on the street, all kinds of health hazards and this could blow up into a major epidemic. so we need to do something so the president really wants to look at all or different options. the police obviously need to be supported because there are many people on the street who are not orderly individuals and they impact on the freedom of the people have even to walk down the street so that must be looked at and we must understand as a nation we have failed a lot of mentally incapable people by just throwing them out and not supporting them. some people think that is compassion but that's not compassion at all. we have to begin to work with the american psychiatric association and others in terms of what kinds of programs are going to work for these individuals.
12:21 am
we want to maximize their freedom but also want to free all the other citizens. >> you of his a lot of cities here, the governor sent a letter local officials, governor newsom said state and local governments ramped up action to the families out authority. in contrast your administration proposed significant cuts to public housing and other programs. how do you respond? >> since i have been in this office there have been no cuts to those programs. there have not been any cuts. i'm not sure that is an accurate statement at all. just throwing money at the problem is not going to work. people have been trying that for a long time and when we look at places like california that have excessively hike pricing it
12:22 am
means every year as those prices go up the cost of the subsidies goes up so we have to spend more money to take care of the same number of people. that's not something that is working, what we need to do is analyze the reasons the costs are so high and it is because of all the regulatory barriers and restrictions. in california it is solar panels on all the new constructs. that just raises the price ridiculously. in san francisco the median home price in the san francisco bay area is $1.7 million. who can afford that. we really need to go to the supply side here. what can we do to create more supply and if we have adequate supply, that will automatically take care of the pricing. >> i know you visited there today. i want to give you a chance to
12:23 am
respond to a picture, and she offers no help for san francisco in lightning fast visit to public housing, you were there about 20 minutes talking to residents in 20 minutes with reporters, no concrete proposals to share no promises of new federal funding for handling homelessness. is that a fair assessment? >> of course not. i made it very clear that i wanted to hear their side of the story, i wanted to hear from residents. we want to look at all the possibilities. i also told them this is not just us giving you money. we need to be able to sit down, we need to be able to explore the causes of homelessness and look at best practices. what are the things that have worked around this country and other parts of the world and let's take a logical approach, not an ideological approach. >> the department is looking at a lot of unique ways to go about tackling these problems.

12:30 am
>> imagine the thought process that went into attacking an oil refinery in saudi arabia? that's an act of war by any reasonable definition. >> the white house is keeping messaging on this tightly synced, the vp's comments echoed what the president said yesterday insisting the us doesn't want a war but it will win one if a war comes calling. >> what are the options of the trump national security team weighing through tonight? >> they are considering a range of options, one administration source tells fox news they hope to get the human involved thing the un security council was created to address international peace and security and this attack meets that criteria but regardless of the you in the trump administration is standing firmly along with egypt, jordan and the uk. in the absence of definitive proof, other american allies are hedging their bets.

12:42 am
>> it is overwhelming, 2246 unborn children discovered in a grisly manner, shocking. when we found out about it we recognized this was something we needed to address because there is every indication that those unborn babies came from indiana. i reached out to the attorney general from illinois and we agreed we would work together and pleased will county state attorney's office in illinois and the sheriff's department and coroner's office have done a great job cataloguing and getting information and we hope to cooperate with that and involve our indiana system as well. >> this -- he had clinics in indiana, in a number of places. he lost his licensing in 2015, he lost his license in 2016. a filmmaker, mark archer who sat

being with us tonight. everybody is waiting to see what will happen in these behind-the-scenes discussions, here is nancy pelosi on mitch mcconnell saying i've got to wait and see what the president wants. >> i don't know why a leader in the senate would abdicate his responsibilities, the institution in which he leads. shannon: your reaction. >> ten statements where nancy pelosi said she was waiting to see what president obama wanted to do before she acts. that statement is totally inaccurate. she has done before. donald trump does wants to act on this and their two additional men important to this debate, mitch mcconnell and lindsey graham, which all gun control must go through his committee. the truth is we recognize something must be done but we don't want to infringe on second amendment rights.
