Trump takes on California through Twitter: Here’s what he’s tweeted about the Golden State.

Donald Trump is coming to California on Tuesday, marking his first visit since 2016. The president, who lost here by more than 4 million votes, has often said unflattering things about California. He owns a golf course in Rancho Palos Verdes, held several campaign rallies across the state and has boasted about his Hollywood connections. Good and bad, here’s what Trump has tweeted about California, its politicians, policies, sports and culture.

After declaring his candidacy

Policy critiques and complaints

President Trump has been a harsh critic of the state’s immigration and environmental policies, and the Justice Department is currently suing the state for its stance on so-called sanctuary cities.


California’s sanctuary policies are illegal and unconstitutional and put the safety and security of our entire nation at risk. Thousands of dangerous & violent criminal aliens are released as a result of sanctuary policies, set free to prey on innocent Americans. THIS MUST STOP!


Heading to see the BORDER WALL prototypes in California!


I have decided that sections of the Wall that California wants built NOW will not be built until the whole Wall is approved. Big victory yesterday with ruling from the courts that allows us to proceed. OUR COUNTRY MUST HAVE BORDER SECURITY!


Such a total miscarriage of Justice in San Francisco!


Serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California - so why isn't the media reporting on this? Serious bias - big problem!


If the election were based on total popular vote I would have campaigned in N.Y. Florida and California and won even bigger and more easily


Two policemen just shot in San Diego, one dead. It is only getting worse. People want LAW AND ORDER!


Reporting that Orlando killer shouted "Allah hu Akbar!" as he slaughtered clubgoers. 2nd man arrested in LA with rifles near Gay parade.


Even though I have a very biased and unfair judge in the Trump U civil case in San Diego, I have thousands of great reviews & will win case!


I have a judge in the Trump University civil case, Gonzalo Curiel (San Diego), who is very unfair. An Obama pick. Totally biased-hates Trump


The "protesters" in California were thugs and criminals. Many are professionals. They should be dealt with strongly by law enforcement!


Boycott all Apple products until such time as Apple gives cellphone info to authorities regarding radical Islamic terrorist couple from Cal


El Chapo comes to the U.S. often thru our borderit's been revealed he has CA drivers license.


I absolutely support Kate’s Law—in honor of the beautiful Kate Steinle who was gunned down in SF by an illegal immigrant.


.@marcorubio what do you say to the family of Kathryn Steinle in CA who was viciously killed b/c we can't secure our border? Stand up for US


BREAKING NEWS: Obama has just made a trade with Russia. They get Florida, California & our gold supply. We get borscht & a bottle of vodka.


Just got back to New York from California. Will be on Fox & Friends tomorrow morning at 7.00. ObamaCare and other disasters to be discussed


Ice storm rolls from Texas to Tennessee - I'm in Los Angeles and it's freezing. Global warming is a total, and very expensive, hoax!


Would seem that plane landed short of runway in San Francisco!


Kern County, CA has secured $1.2B for windfarms They also just secured more eagle deaths & low property values.


.@PhilMickels0n_ is rightCalifornia taxes are far too high. Its ridiculous.


California gas prices going thru the roof, others to follow. An election-losing event for Obama.


Ugly wind turbines have destroyed the entrance to Palm Springs, CA. These monstrosities are ruining landscapes all over the globe--expensive & bad electric.


Gas prices have doubled under Obama. Over $5/gallon now in California. We must start drilling from our own resources to become independent.


The Bay Bridge in San Francisco is being built by the Chinese--tremendous cost overruns. A total mess. We should build our own bridges, etc


Gas prices are soaring. $4.12 in CA. OPEC is laughing at how stupid we are.


Palm Springs, CA has been destroyed--absolutely destroyed--by the world's ugliest wind farm at the Gateway on Interstate 10. Very very sad!


Bay Bridge in California made in China for $1.8 billion. $300 million in cost overruns. Are we stupid?


Gas is $6 already in California. Don' worry - @BarackObama's Algae energy policy is going to pay major dividends. (Just kidding!)

Critiques of California politicians

Trump has targeted Sen. Dianne Feinstein for years. More recently, he’s directed his frustration towards Reps. Adam B. Schiff and Nancy Pelosi. And despite his clashes with former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Trump has never tweeted about Gov. Jerry Brown.


Congressman Schiff omitted and distorted key facts @FoxNews So, what else is new. He is a total phony!


Dems are no longer talking DACA! “Out of sight, out of mind,” they say. DACA beneficiaries should not be happy. Nancy Pelosi truly doesn’t care about them. Republicans stand ready to make a deal!


Now that Adam Schiff is starting to blame President Obama for Russian meddling in the election, he is probably doing so as yet another excuse that the Democrats, lead by their fearless leader, Crooked Hillary Clinton, lost the 2016 election. But wasn’t I a great candidate?


Finally, Liddle’ Adam Schiff, the leakin’ monster of no control, is now blaming the Obama Administration for Russian meddling in the 2016 Election. He is finally right about something. Obama was President, knew of the threat, and did nothing. Thank you Adam!


Little Adam Schiff, who is desperate to run for higher office, is one of the biggest liars and leakers in Washington, right up there with Comey, Warner, Brennan and Clapper! Adam leaves closed committee hearings to illegally leak confidential information. Must be stopped!


The Democrats just aren’t calling about DACA. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have to get moving fast, or they’ll disappoint you again. We have a great chance to make a deal or, blame the Dems! March 5th is coming up fast.


March 5th is rapidly approaching and the Democrats are doing nothing about DACA. They Resist, Blame, Complain and Obstruct - and do nothing. Start pushing Nancy Pelosi and the Dems to work out a DACA fix, NOW!


“Shutting down the government is a very serious thing. People die, accidents happen. I don’t know how I would vote right now on a CR, OK? Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif)


Democrat Dianne Feinstein should never have released secret committee testimony to the public without authorization


The fact that Sneaky Dianne Feinstein, who has on numerous occasions stated that collusion between Trump/Russia has not been found, would release testimony in such an underhanded and possibly illegal way, totally without authorization, is a disgrace. Must have tough Primary!


The jury was not told the killer of Kate was a 7 time felon. The Schumer/Pelosi Democrats are so weak on Crime that they will pay a big price in the 2018 and 2020 Elections.


Meeting with “Chuck and Nancy” today about keeping government open and working. Problem is they want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes. I don’t see a deal!


Sleazy Adam Schiff, the totally biased Congressman looking into "Russia," spends all of his time on television pushing the Dem loss excuse!


I certainly hope the Democrats do not force Nancy P out. That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!


Arnold Schwarzenegger isn't voluntarily leaving the Apprentice, he was fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings, not by me. Sad end to great show


I hereby demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it.


Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger did a really bad job as Governor of California and even worse on the Apprentice...but at least he tried hard!


Nancy Pelosi and Fake Tears Chuck Schumer held a rally at the steps of The Supreme Court and mic did not work (a mess)-just like Dem party!


Wow, the ratings are in and Arnold Schwarzenegger got "swamped" (or destroyed) by comparison to the ratings machine, DJT. So much for....


Great, Kevin McCarthy drops out of SPEAKER race. We need a really smart and really tough person to take over this very important job!


There is no way that Carly Fiorina can become the Republican Nominee or win against the Dems. Boxer killed her for Senate in California!


I wish good luck to all of the Republican candidates that traveled to California to beg for money etc. from the Koch Brothers. Puppets?


Very sad & dangerous that soon to be ex-Intelligence Chair Dianne Feinstein released the CIA report. Glad she is losing her Comm. Chair.


Remember when @ariannahuff ran for Governor of California. She got 3 votes.


A coincidence that the NSA leaker is living openly in Hong Kong?! At the same time the Chinese Pres. met with Obama in CA.

Condolences or compliments

Trump occasionally tweets supportive comments. After he declared his candidacy, he tweeted praise for California Republicans. He also sent thanks to first responders during the California wildfires and the San Bernardino shooting.


Starting at a small Bible School in Florida, Billy Graham soon led a nationwide revival. From a large tent in Los Angeles, to one hundred thousand people in a single day at Yankee Stadium, to more than two million people at Madison Square Garden over sixteen weeks in 1957...


Representative Devin Nunes, a man of tremendous courage and grit, may someday be recognized as a Great American Hero for what he has exposed and what he has had to endure!


Thank you @GOPLeader Kevin McCarthy! Couldn’t agree w/you more. TOGETHER, we are #MAGA


Congratulations to Paul Ryan, Kevin McCarthy, Kevin Brady, Steve Scalise, Cathy McMorris Rodgers and all great House Republicans who voted in favor of cutting your taxes!


Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the path of California’s wildfires. I encourage everyone to heed the advice and orders of local and state officials. THANK YOU to all First Responders for your incredible work!


Our hearts are with all affected by the wildfires in California. God bless our brave First Responders and @FEMA team. We support you!


Working hard to get the Olympics for the United States (L.A.). Stay tuned!


.@DarrellIssa is a very good man. Help him win his congressional seat in California.


Congratulations on the GREAT job done by POLICE and law enforcement on the California shootings. Give credit where credit is due.


#TeamTrump. Police and law enforcement seem to have killed one of the California shooters and are in a shootout with the others. Go police


California shooting looks very bad. Good luck to law enforcement and God bless. This is when our police are so appreciated!


Congrats to my friend @Schwarzenegger who is doing next seasons Celebrity Apprentice. He'll be great & will raise lots of $ for charity.

Congratulations to @AmericansElect for winning a spot on the California 2012 ballot. A major feat!

California culture

Trump likes to weigh in on all things California. He talks about sports, including the Lakers and Dodgers, Silicon Valley and Hollywood.


Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect! Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down.


Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!


Dems failed in Kansas and are now failing in Georgia. Great job Karen Handel! It is now Hollywood vs. Georgia on June 20th.


I want talented people to come into this country—to work hard and to become citizens. Silicon Valley needs engineers, etc.


In game 7 of the World Series tonight, the Giants are making a big mistake in not starting their ace against K.C., even with two days rest.


.@MagicJohnson Good luck with the Dodgers this season, if they were like you they would never lose a game!


2013 is the worst year ever for Hollywood. Garbage released after garbage. What is going on in these studios?!


What a shame that Kobe Bryant was so badly injured last night - a truly great champion who brought the Lakers back from oblivion this year!


As promised, my @SuperBowl pick is the San Francisco @49ers.


A-Rod is now looking for an expensive home in Beverly Hills--why aren't the @Yankees terminating his contract for misrepresentation?


Great win last night by Peyton Manning & @Denver_Broncos in San Diego coming from 24 points behind on the road. Very impressive.


The @Lakers should have an amazing team next year with Kobe, Nash and Howard. Will be fun to watch.

Trump's Los Angeles golf course

Trump refrained from tweeting about the Trump National Golf Club once he announced his candidacy. Before that, he frequently used Twitter to promote his sprawling golf course in Rancho Palos Verdes.


Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles offers 18 holes fronting the Pacific Ocean on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
