California Governor Gavin Newsom unveiled his plan to combat President Trump’s border wall push Friday; saying his government will sue the White House to prevent the Commander-in-Chief from declaring a “national emergency” to fund Trump’s security proposal.

“President Trump is manufacturing a crisis and declaring a made-up ‘national emergency’ in order to seize power and subvert the constitution,” said Newsom following the President’s press conference. “Our message back to the White House is simple and clear: California will see you in court.”

“President Trump got one thing right this morning about his declaration, when he said ‘I didn’t have to do this,’” said California Attorney General Xavier Becerra. “In fact, he can’t do this… This is a president showing his disdain for the rule of law and our U.S. Constitution.”
