A Visit Behind the Lines: President Trump Heads to California

The New York Times

LOS ANGELES — Since Donald J. Trump was elected president in November 2016, he has paid visits to Pennsylvania, Texas, Ohio, South Carolina, West Virginia, Florida and Wisconsin. He has gone to New York, New Jersey and Maryland. The president has even found time to stop off in Hawaii. But there is one state where Mr. Trump’s absence has been particularly glaring: California, the West Coast bastion of the Democratic Party. That is about to change. The president arrives in California on Tuesday morning for a brief trip into what the White House presumably views as enemy territory. The visit comes a week after Attorney General Jeff Sessions sued the state over three newly enacted immigration laws, contending that they were unconstitutional. In response, Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat, said that Mr. Trump was “basically going to war” with California. The governor sent Mr. Trump a letter Monday in which he heralded California’s economic success in recent years and quoted another Republican president — George W. Bush — in arguing that the state’s economic well-being was critical to the nation’s prosperity.

California thrives because we welcome immigrants and innovators from across the globe.” Continue reading the main story It is the first time …

California's top prosecutor emerges as Trump nemesis

NBC News

LOS ANGELES — Xavier Becerra played a fair amount of poker in his younger days. So, when the California attorney general thinks today about his most frequent adversary, President Donald Trump, he recalls players who came to the table with massive stacks of chips. The high rollers could be intimidating. “You know this guy can bet big anytime he wants,” Becerra said recently in Sacramento. “But, more often than not, those guys with those massive trays of chips would lose, because there is always someone at the table who knows how to play those guys. And I am thinking that is the way it i…

Trump's visit to California comes amid frayed relations

The Washingon Times

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Donald Trump is coming - at last - to the state he loves to hate, setting foot in California for his first time as president. This is turf he lost to Democrat Hillary Clinton by more than 4 million votes in 2016. He has mocked its judges for blocking his agenda, sued over its lax enforcement of immigration laws and threatened to pull out federal agents. But there’s something he’s dying to see here: the prototypes for his long-promised wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

In his first visit as president to California, the blue bastion of liberal resistance, Mr. Trump unloaded on the Democratic governor, Jerry Brown, and called on Congress to punish jurisdictions in the state that do not cooperate with federal immigration authorities. “Governor Brown does a very poor job running California,” Mr. Trump said during a visit to the Mexican border where he inspected prototypes of the wall he wants to build. “They have the highest taxes in the …
