CALIFORNIA SCHEMIN’: Trump Says Feds ‘WON’T PAY’ for Troop ‘CHARADE’

President Trump fired-back at California Governor Jerry Brown Thursday, saying the federal government “will not pay” for his National Guard to “do nothing” when sent to the United States’ southern border with Mexico.

The President’s fiery comments come just hours after Brown agreed to deploy his National Guard, but added severe restrictions that barred them from enforcing “immigration laws” or cooperating with border agents.

“Governor Jerry Brown announced he will deploy “up to 400 National Guard Troops” to do nothing. The crime rate in California is high enough, and the Federal Government will not be paying for Governor Brown’s charade. We need border security and action, not words!” Trump tweeted.

The ongoing feud between the liberal governor and President Trump reached new heights last month, after the Commander-in-Chief toured the region and demanded construction begin on his signature campaign promise: The border wall.
