California Gov. Jerry Brown, who sharply derided President Trump and his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, just last week as going to "war" against his state, struck a different tone in welcoming the president Monday, asking him to consider investments in California's high-speed rail efforts as part of his infrastructure plans.
"You have lamented that 'we don't have one fast train' in our country," Brown wrote in a letter to the president. "Well, Mr. Trump, in California we are trying to fix that. We have a world-class train system under construction. We invite you to come aboard and truly 'Make America Great Again.'"
