  • Trump Visits Border Wall Prototypes In California Trip

    President Donald Trump has landed in California at last. After 14 months of avoiding the country's most populous state, the President on Tuesday landed in the Golden State where he will visit the US-Mexico border near San Diego and raise campaign cash at a high-dollar fundraiser in Beverly Hills, near where he owns a home. His absence from the US' most populous state has been notable. The last sitting president to go this long without traveling to California was Franklin Roosevelt -- and he took a train. Trump lost the state by a wide margin in the 2016 presidential election and remains deeply unpopular there. Trump didn't try to warm relations while on the ground in California. Shortly after landing, Trump told reporters that California Gov. Jerry Brown has "done a very poor job running California," slamming the Democrat for immigration and tax policy. Trump's criticism focused on tax policy, too, with the President mentioning owning property in California. "The taxes are way, way out of whack, and people are going to start to move pretty soon," he said. Trump previously lambasted California in recent weeks, threatening to withdraw federal law enforcement agents and suing the state over its immigration rules. This weekend, he focused his weekly radio address on criticizing the state's stance toward undocumented immigrants.

  • Trump VIsits Mexico For Latino Vote

    Hillary Clinton's team views Donald Trump's latest outreach to latino voters as too little, too late. | Getty The 2016 election cycle offered Republicans a moment to peel Latino voters away from the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee. This is not that moment. While Donald Trump dashes south to meet with Mexico’s unpopular president – a man with even worse favorability numbers than the GOP nominee – and prepares to deliver a more measured position on border security and immigration, Democrats and Republicans alike dismiss as fantasy any notion that the GOP nominee could boost his margins among Hispanic voters in a significant way.
