President Trump sent liberal California activists in a tizzy on Tuesday when he performed a lunch-dinner-Breakfast-lunch fundraising blitz expected to scoop up $ 15 million of wealthy Republicans in the state, in the span of just two days.

A fire storm among the Hollywood elites broke in the last month as soon as the trump Emmy week, a visit to the Golden State, was announced, with “Will and Grace” star Debra messing, suggesting that someone should be designated to participate in the fundraising events and be ashamed in public. The trump prompted to call brass a failed actress, once upon a time in the racism and McCarthyism.

The President is not deterred, push to the West, came a day after he headlined a fiery rally in New Mexico, the long reliably liberal state, the hoped for the trump campaign, the red in the year 2020. Trump was find the next Wisconsin or Michigan — States that the Democrats have won in, as a rule, in the case of the presidential elections, but this could surprise, under certain conditions, such as in the year 2016. Also on the Trump team is on the shortlist in the new strategy: Nevada, New Hampshire, and Minnesota.

California is decidedly on this list. Nevertheless, Republican strategists said the state could still be useful, even if not for its electoral votes.

“It gives life to a President in history that is so unpopular in the state of California as a trump card,” said Mike Madrid, a GOP political consultant and outspoken Trump critics. “But our money spends the same as all the others.”

With the demonstrators and not far, Trump began his money Tuesday to earn with a $3 million Bay Area-lunch, followed by a US $ 5 million in Beverly Hills for dinner at the home of real estate developer Geoffrey Palmer. He is expected to get an additional $7 million on Wednesday with a Breakfast in Los Angeles and lunch in San Diego.

According to The Mercury News, the as a trump, the motorcade roared by, filmmaker Ralph king raised a hand written sign with the inscription “you are welcome here” and said: “it is offensive that Trump is bringing its toxic message in our backyard.”

In the vicinity of Trump’s Fans also gathered.

Trump allegedly Bay Area Fans said that California is “a beautiful state, but the system was rigged — the election was not done fairly — and it made it very difficult” for him to win, RNC ‘ Committee woman, Harmeet Dhillon said.

California legalized ballot harvesting in the year 2018. So far, only one member of the family or someone in the same household was allowed to live, in order to collect the drop-off E-mail ballot for the voters, but the new everyone-can including of political activists, and then again for a voters.

Despite holding a significant lead on election day, many Republican candidates in California, they saw their advantage shrink and then disappear, such as late-arriving democratic counting of votes in the weeks after the election.

“We were only 26 seats [National] the night of the election, and three weeks later, we lost basically every California race,” then-outgoing speaker of the house of representatives Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., the Washington Post said last year. “Point being, if you can win candidates, the absentee ballots, voting, win the day of the vote, and then lose three weeks later because of temporaries, which is really bizarre.”

In an interview with reporters aboard Air Force One, Trump, you got some fresh penetrates on the state of the problem of homelessness, saying: “We can not allow Los Angeles, San Francisco and many other cities self-destruct by what happens.”

He added, “The people in San Francisco are sick of it, and the inhabitants of Los Angeles are full, and we see it, and we will do something about it.”

Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti, a Democrat, said in a Facebook video post in front of the trump of the arrival, that he hoped the President would work with the city to end homelessness. He said that he had not been invited to meet with the President.

The mayor said the built in case of a possible 26 residential complexes, of the transition of humans from living on the street.

“President Trump: we have said to press pause on the policy, homelessness crisis, and now to save lives,” Garcetti. “I wanted to be with him a little, he would have to understand here in South LA and we listen to the challenges and opportunities that the Washington, DC talk — instead, they demonize us, to be able to could actually come and help us.”

Garcetti pushed back on a trump card to claim in a July interview that homelessness was a phenomenon that began two years ago: “I don’t want to calm down, the start of the President two years ago, when she was President. It has not even started six years ago, when I was mayor, but it is our collective day, and our collective responsibility to solve this.”

However, Garcetti sound separately with a conciliatory tone, as he spoke to the journalists. “I know, I should just get back to punching the President, but when he said real about it, I’ll believe it when I see it, but I will also trust that he wants to save some lives, as well,” the mayor. “Sure I do. We could do this together.”


California as an incubator for the modern conservative movement that swept the state, the former Governor, Ronald Reagan was seen, in the White house in 1980. But the demographic changes and an influx of immigrants and new residents of the political contours of the country, the most populous state, have helped to rework drastically, with the former GOP stronghold of Orange County with more registered Democrats than Republicans this summer.

She added: “I sold $100,000 worth (tickets), and I would have sold another $100,000 and more.”


California has long been a major fundraising hatchery for the politicians of both parties, to a wealthy industrial-heads and Hollywood to Finance their political ambitions. But, the trump card, the run-of-the-mill fundraising journey has taken on a more problematic dimension because of his harsh criticism of the government immigration laws and practices of the forestry, of which he is the blame for part of deadly forest fires.

Earlier this month, Trump fired back in disorder, after she tweeted that the participants of the Trump California Fundraising activities should be publicly outed, after a similar push by costar Eric McCormack.

Trump tweeted back: “I have not forgotten that, when it was announced that I was going to do, The apprentice, and if it is then to be a big hit, to help NBC failed lineup strong, @Debra messing came up to me in a in advance & profusely to thank me, even called me ‘Sir.’ How times have changed!”

McCormack later said that he supports never blacklists, to which brass replied, “I wouldn’t be better.”

Last month, Trump took aim at the state’s massive film industry, Hollywood calls “very dangerous for our country.”

He added: “Hollywood is really terrible. You talk about racism in Hollywood is racist.”
