Trump gets invite to see California high-speed rail projects

Protests are also being planned across the border in Tijuana, Mexico on Tuesday when Trump will examine eight, 30-foot-tall prototypes built along the global border to fulfill his signature campaign promise.

At a rally for a Republican congressional candidate in Pennsylvania, Trump told the crowd about the recent phone call with Peña Nieto after the audience began shouting Trump's campaign slogan, 'Build that wall'.

Since taking office, Mr Trump has said the wall will initially need USA funding but that he will find a way to make Mexico ultimately pay for it. I am not making that statement. Ting's proposal has been one of several attempts to slow or stop its construction in a state that has billed itself as home to a resistance movement against Trump's hard-line immigration policies. "We don't need your racist wall!"

Many Californians still want to disassociate themselves from Trump and if he were to get re-elected in 2020 the clamor for the state - which on its own is the sixth largest economy in the world - to secede could become deafening.

The Los Angeles Police Department warned residents of prolonged protests and demonstrations during the presidential visit Monday; adding they're "prepared for anything". She is due to leave her post on May 5.

President Trump will arrive in California on Tuesday to look at border wall prototypes and to hold a fundraiser in Los Angeles.

Vargas, who has voted twice to impeach Trump, told reporters he knew about "classified information" that would be used to impeach Trump related to Russian meddling in the US presidential election. By many key measures - personal income, high-wage jobs and home prices - California has seen greater increases than the national average, said Chris Lafakis, director at Moody's Analytics in West Chester, Pennsylvania.

He is expected to visit the Los Angeles-Beverly Hills area Tuesday night for a Republican National Committee fundraiser. Jerry Brown tried to find common ground with the president: In a Monday letter he invited Trump north to the Central Valley to tour the bridges and viaducts being built for the state's high-speed rail line.

"You see, in California, we are focusing on bridges, not walls".

However, California - a state overrun with left-wing progressive activists groups and lawmakers - has so far proven to be a problem for the president's agenda. The administration has had a contentious relationship with California lawmakers and sued the state just last week over three laws it says makes federal immigration enforcement more hard.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who until past year represented downtown Los Angeles in the House for more than two decades, has filed 28 lawsuits against the Trump administration. We have a world-class train system under construction. We are already putting 1,700 Americans to work. There are at least four anti-Trump protests on Tuesday.

Supporters hold up signs opposing plans to build a border wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.
