You know you've struck a nerve when you draw protesters on both sides of an international border.
That was the case last Tuesday (March 12), when President Trump inspected a collection of border wall prototypes on display in a dusty lot near the U.S.-Mexico border outside of San Diego.
The visit marked his first trip to left-leaning California since taking office, and he used the occasion to resume the push for his long-promised and highly controversial "big, beautiful" border wall. He was also quick to condemn the state and jurisdictions within it for offering “sanctuary” to undocumented immigrants and not fully cooperating with federal immigration officials. Oh, and he accused Gov. Jerry Brown (D) of doing “a terrible job.”
“They have the highest taxes in the United States,” Trump said. “The place is totally out of control.”
On Twitter, Brown shot back, thanking Trump for the "shout-out."
