Trump just tweeted to demand $3.5 billion back from California NOW - Gov. Newsom responds

Last edited Wed Feb 13, 2019, 10:28 PM - Edit history (1)

A few minutes ago:





California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars. They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!







Editing to add Gov. Gavin Newsom's response on Twitter:






Fake news. We’re building high-speed rail, connecting the Central Valley and beyond.

This is CA’s money, allocated by Congress for this project. We’re not giving it back.

The train is leaving the station — better get on board!

(Also, desperately searching for some wall $$??)

12. WashPost reported that he paid for it himself

It replaces an older, less sophisticated golf simulator that had been installed under President Obama.

Trump’s system cost about $50,000, which he paid for personally, a White House official said.

4. I now believe 60% of the country has no president. California should

stop paying anything into the federal government.

9. Yes, start requiring all federal taxes collected in CA to be submitted to the state treasury.

Then let them remit to the US Treasury after garnishment.
