California Gov. Gavin Newsom warned us all last year when he said all voters had to do was to “look out west” to see what Democrats would do once they were back in power in Washington, D.C. President Trump seems to feel the same way, and he’s come up with a succinct campaign message for the people of California:
California is going to hell. Vote Trump!

The President’s messaging for CA voters… https://t.co/lvo2o61CZh

I was born and raised here in California. I use to be sooooo proud of my State! And now, if I could, I would move out of here in a heartbeat!

If California wasn’t going to hell there wouldn’t be so many folks moving. I’m strongly considering the move back to Texas next year. My neighbors also considering moving out of state as well.

Homelessness, broken roads, fires, exorbitant government pensions and HIGH TAXES forcing businesses to flee. How is he wrong

Here’s what it costs to rent a uhaul to go from Anaheim to Phoenix AZ. It’s only $300 going the other way. We have big problems here. pic.twitter.com/EB8XtR45rT

He is wrong about this statement.
From what I hear from friends who live there… it is already a living hell

We’re old enough to remember the #CalExit hashtag and the movement by a group of progressives to have California secede from the United States, depriving the rest of us of California’s “laid-back tolerance.” Maybe if Trump wins those progressives will make an even harder push to have California secede and become its own country.
Here’s an opposing viewpoint from Breitbart’s Joel Pollak, who looks to be doing his impression of Snopes or PolitiFact:
Fact check: FALSE. Though scientists say California could be affected by the ravages of global warming, and half of the state is currently on fire, there is no confirmation that it is, in fact, destined to proceed to the underworld as described in religious and mythological texts https://t.co/zj1fNGIVxW
