Trump's Feud With California Could Hurt The State's GOP Races

Trump's Feud With California Could Hurt The State's GOP Races

Activists and community groups hold a rally to condemn the visit of US President Trump to California ahead of his visit to view border wall prototypes in San Diego.

Those remarks about Curiel and Trump's campaign promise to build a "big, attractive wall" along the U.S. -Mexico border, has led to the Golden State earning a reputation as the incubator for the "resistance" against Trump's administration.

We'll continue to follow what will likely be continuing confrontations between Trump and California. I am not making that statement.

Brown, who accuses the Trump administration of waging war on America's most populous state, has said the law was crafted with input and support from California police.

"When you look at what a wall will do in allowing us to apprehend the vast majority of those individuals that are coming across the border, it will cut down on how much the taxpayer burden will be, which then will go straight into funding the wall", he told Fox & Friends on Monday.

Many Californians still want to disassociate themselves from Trump and if he were to get re-elected in 2020 the clamor for the state - which on its own is the sixth largest economy in the world - to secede could become deafening.

Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, led a Monday afternoon rally in Beverly Hills in advance of Trump's visit, denouncing the president's plans for a border wall and his immigration stances. She is due to leave her post on May 5.

So far, Donald Trump's proposed border wall amounts to just eight slabs of concrete with no prospects of expanding.

A former GOP congressional aide told The Guardian that Trump's visit will likely remind California voters of the words and actions he's leveled against the state.

(L to R) Alliance San Diego Associate Director Christopher Wilson, San Diego City Councilwoman Georgette Gomez and U.S. Rep. Juan Vargas speak at a rally opposing President Donald Trump's visit to San Diego.

It's not clear whether the president will meet with Governor Jerry Brown, who sent a letter inviting Trump to the Central Valley to tour California's High-Speed Rail line under construction.

Later, Trump will travel up the coast to Los Angeles where he will attend a fundraiser in Beverly Hills.

The governor says California is focusing on bridges, not walls, and adds that the project has put 1,700 people to work. "And that's more than just a figure of speech", Brown wrote. We have a world-class train system under construction. Several key Trump fundraisers who actively participated in his presidential campaign live in those areas.

Trump's visit comes just days after his Justice Department sued to block California laws created to protect people living in the U.S. illegally and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions followed up with a speech in Sacramento that was immediately denounced by Brown, who said the Trump administration was "full of liars".
