Florida Governor Jerry Brown took his war-of-words with President Trump to the next level in recent days, labeling the Commander-in-Chief a “saboteur” and viciously suggesting “something’s got to happen to this guy.”
Brown was speaking with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell when he was asked to comment on the President’s policies regarding climate change in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence.
“We never had a president who was engaged in this kind of behavior,” Brown said. “I mean he’s not telling the truth; he keeps changing his mind; he’s sabotaging the world order in many respects.”
“It’s unprecedented, it’s dangerous, and hopefully this election is going to send a strong message to the country; the Democrats will win…something’s got to happen to this guy, because if we don’t get rid of him, he’s going to undermine America and even the world,” he added.

ALL OUT WAR: Governor Brown Says TRUMP 'AT WAR' with the State of California
California Governor Jerry Brown slammed the Trump administration Wednesday afternoon following Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ address to law enforcement officials in Sacramento; saying the White House has declared “war” against his state.
The Governor was speaking with reporters at the state Capitol when he viciously attacked Sessions’ remarks, claiming it was “unprecedented” that the federal government would “basically go to war” against California.
“This is really unprecedented for the chief law enforcement officer of the United States to come out to California and act more like Fox News than a law enforcement officer. This is a political stunt,” said the liberal leader. “We know the Trump administration is full of liars. They’ve pled guilty already to the special counsel.”
“This is basically going to war against the state of California, the engine of the American economy. It’s not wise, it’s not right, and it will not stand,” Brown added.
“Look, we know the Trump administration is full of liars,” California Gov. Jerry Brown says in response to AG Sessions. “The release records are public, and there's nothing that stops any sheriff who runs the jails to working with ICE.” https://t.co/YVbTYKJhnk pic.twitter.com/5KpGagyB7M

The Governor’s harsh rhetoric was a stark rebuke to the Attorney General’s comments from earlier Wednesday, when the nation’s top law enforcement official re-affirmed that “federal law” is the “supreme law of the land.”
“There is no nullification. There is no secession. Federal law is the supreme law of the land. I would invite any doubters to go to Gettysburg, to the tombstones of John C. Calhoun and Abraham Lincoln. This matter has been settled,” Sessions said.
