Far-left California Governor Gavin Newsom slammed the White House’s strong record on the economy over the weekend; suggesting the President is wrecking the “growing economy” he “inherited from Obama.”
“Trump’s big talk of the strongest economy is all smoke and mirrors. The truth remains: He inherited a growing economy from Obama and is failing to preserve it,” posted Newsom on social media.

Newsom signed new legislation earlier this year that provides free healthcare to all illegal immigrants under the age of 25 residing in California; a program that will cost the state $98 million in new taxes.
“The budget extends health care benefits to California residents 19-25 years of age regardless of their immigration status. The bill, introduced earlier this year, is estimated to cover about 90,000 low-income residents overall and comes with a roughly $98 million price tag,” reports the Hill. “California already offers health care to residents under 19 years old regardless of their immigration status. The new law extends that coverage, under its Medi-Cal program, to an expanded age group.”
“The budget also provides support to middle-class families with monthly health insurance premiums, which will be paid for by reviving an individual mandate penalty, part of the Affordable Care Act, taxing individuals who do not have health insurance,” adds the website.
