The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Responding to the action taken on Tuesday by California Governor Gavin Newsom to cancel 2/3rds of Jerry Brown’s high speed rail boondoggle, President Donald Trump (how could anyone ever tire of typing those three glorious words?) issued a tweet at 7:29 CT demanding the federal government’s ill-considered subsidies of the fake green project back:
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!

That’s right: The federal government (in an other president’s administration – you get one guess as to which one) is so absurdly wasteful that it actually looked a this disastrous waste of taxpayer money and said, “hey, we want a piece of that action!”, ultimately coming across with $3.5 billion in subsidies.
Now, the current POTUS wants the money back in his never-ending, singular focus to Make America Great Again.
Somebody go make some popcorn, because this is about to get good…
That is all.
