Trump arrives in California, confronting the resistance movement on its home turf - latimes

President Trump arrived in California on Tuesday after a tumultuous morning in which he fired his secretary of State to personally confront the state's resistance over his signature issue, a southern border wall, and related immigration crackdowns.

Trump's first visit to the nation's most populous state is to be brief — just one day — but long on symbolism. He plans to spend about an hour inspecting border wall prototypes built at his direction in San Diego, then speak at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar and travel to a fundraiser in Beverly Hills that is expected to raise $5 million for the Republican National Committee.
