In the letter, Carson accused Waters of exuding "shamelessness" for criticizing Trump over reports about the administration's potential plans to crack down on homelessness in California, according to a copy obtained by The Hill. Politico first reported on the letter sent by Carson.
“My mother always taught me that people shouldn’t throw rocks, especially while they live in a glass house,” Carson wrote. “Because of that wise lesson, I was a little surprised to read your hostile letter to President Trump regarding the record number of homeless Americans in California, particularly in your district.”
Waters in late October sent a letter to the White House demanding answers about its reported plans to push homeless people off the streets in California. The administration has discussed tearing down existing homeless camps in areas such as Los Angeles, according to The Washington Post.
"Your shamelessness knows no bounds," Waters, whose congressional district encompasses the southern part of Los Angeles county, wrote. "From day one of your presidency, you have attacked our democracy and now you have set your ire on the 550,000 Americans who on any given night experience homelessness."
