President Trump ventured into hostile territory on Tuesday with his first trip to the seditionist land of California where he is reviled for beating Hillary and his insistence on enforcing immigration laws.
The first shot of a much larger battle was fired when Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf endangered the safety of ICE agents with her warning to illegal aliens that an operation was to commence in her city.
Schaaf’s unprecedented move may have been a violation of the law and was answered with a Justice Department lawsuit against the state to compel the bastion of the Resistance to enforce federal law.
Since Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ announcement of the lawsuit, state officials have been escalating their already volcanic language with even Governor Jerry Brown letting it slip that California was at war with America.
Matters aren’t being helped by the state’s hothead Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom who today railed against ICE agents as Trump’s ‘personal army of hate’ which should add his name to the long list of state and local officials who should be prosecuted.
So @realDonaldTrump has finally worked up the nerve to come to CA and visit his precious wall — a 1900 mile monument to idiocy that is literally IMPOSSIBLE to complete.

California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom (D) is warning that President Trump is trying to turn Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) into “his own personal army of hate.”
Newsom on Tuesday tweeted a campaign video saying that the president “has finally worked up the nerve to come to California and visit his precious wall, a 1,900 mile monument to idiocy that is literally IMPOSSIBLE to complete. We cannot let this small, scared bully hurt our economy and turn ICE into his own personal army of hate,” he narrated over a cartoon video of Trump.
Newsom slammed Trump for increasing arrests of “noncriminal immigrants,” and accused him of “using ICE to tear apart families” and of “terrorizing innocent people.”
The ramping up of the assaults on ICE is right in line with the desire of many on the left to make the outlawing of the agency an election issue. That is so deranged that not even Kamala Harris is prepared to go there – at least not yet.
By the way, Newsom is running for governor in 2020 so expect to hear a lot more of this demonizing of dedicated law enforcement professionals.
Made it official and turned in my paperwork today to run for Governor! AND had the honor of the littlest Newsom joining us for the day 🙂 pic.twitter.com/b2XscUCxCC
