IS HE SERIOUS? Newsom Slams Trump’s Misuse of ‘Taxpayer Dollars’ While Owing $3.5B to US Taxpayers

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.20.19

California Governor Gavin Newsom blasted the Trump administration Tuesday for misusing “taxpayer dollars” in bypassing Congress for border wall funding; conveniently forgetting he currently owes US taxpayers $3.5 billion for his failed high-speed rail project.

“The President didn’t get his way, so he’s trying to bypass Congress and use your taxpayer dollars for his pointless border wall. It’s reckless. It’s unprecedented. And California will not stand for it,” said Newsom on social media.

President Trump demanded Newsom return the $3.5 billion in federal funds after the progressive leader abandoned his state’s high-speed rail project; saying the proposal had become too expensive.

California Governor Gavin Newsom announced Tuesday his government will abandon the state’s highly-touted high-speed rail link connecting Los Angeles and San Francisco; saying the project would likely cost too much money.

“I have nothing but respect for Governor Brown’s and Governor Schwarzenegger’s vision. I share it,” Newsom said. “But let’s be real. The current project, as planned, would cost too much and take too long.”

“The Democratic governor acknowledged critics who want the state to abandon the project entirely, but said he doesn’t want to waste the billions already spent on the project, nor does he want to return $3.5 billion the state has received in federal funding,” writes the Sacramento Bee.

President Trump slammed California Governor Gavin Newsom on social media Wednesday night; blasting the west coast leader after scrapping a $3.5 billion high-speed rail project using federal funds.

“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!” tweeted the president.

Newsom abandoned his state’s rail project during a press conference this week; admitting the project would take “too long” and cost too much money.
