President Trump traveled to San Diego to view the prototypes of his proposed Border Wall.
While there, he took questions from reporters while explaining why the wall was so vital.
But when asked about California Governor Jerry Brown’s objection to the cost of the wall, Trump didn’t hold back.
California Governor Jerry Brown criticized the wall saying some of the money could be better spent elsewhere.
At the end of Trump’s press conference at the wall prototypes, one reporter asked him about it and Trump let Brown have it.
Patch.com reports Trump as saying:
“I think Governor Brown has done a very poor job running California,” Trump told reporters after touring border wall prototypes in Otay Mesa. “They have the highest taxes in the United States. The place is totally out of control.
“You have sanctuary cities where you have criminals living in the sanctuary cities and then the mayor of Oakland goes out and notifies when ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) is going in to pick them up,” he said. “And many of them were criminals with criminal records and very dangerous people … And no, I think the governor’s doing a terrible job running the state of California.”
Trump noted in his remarks that he owns property in California, and “the taxes are way, way out of whack.”
“And people are gonna start to move pretty soon,” he said. “And if you don’t have safety, meaning if you don’t have this kind of (border) wall, drugs are pouring through in California. You can’t do it.
“So the governor of California — nice guy, I think he’s a nice guy, (I) knew him a long time ago — has not done the job and the taxes are double and triple what they should be. And everybody that lives in California, they know it.”
