President Trump is about to play hardball with the People's Republic of California. The crux of Trump's stance: If you're going to act like a child, I'm going to treat you like a child.
Trump said on Sunday that he might "defund" what he called an "out of control" California. He objects to a move by Uber Alles Gov. Jerry Brown to turn the entire socialist republic into a "sanctuary state" that protects illegal aliens as it flouts federal law.
Asked by Fox News host Bill O'Reilly during a Super Bowl interview, Trump said he finds sanctuary cities "ridiculous."
"Sanctuary cities, as you know, I’m very much opposed to sanctuary cities. They breed crime, there’s a lot of problems. If we have to, we’ll defund. We give tremendous amounts of money to California — California in many ways is out of control, as you know. Obviously the voters agree, otherwise they wouldn’t have voted for me," Trump said.
