Trump gets invite to see California high-speed rail projects

Brown also notes in his letter that during his first visit to California, President George W Bush acknowledged the importance of California to the nation's economy.

The first will be held at 11 a.m.at Chicano Park to prepare for and condemn Trump's visit, which will reportedly include a stop in Otay Mesa to view the 30-foot-tall border barrier prototypes, one of which Trump hopes will be used as a model to wall off the U.S. -Mexico border.

The project, however, provides a potential opportunity for cooperation between Democrat Brown and Republican Trump, who has publicly expressed his admiration for high-speed rail lines in other countries.

Last month, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto scrapped plans to make his first visit to the White House to meet with Trump after a testy phone call between the two leaders ended in an impasse over Trump's promised border wall.

That could have disastrous consequences for California's high-speed rail project, which is already four years behind schedule as costs for the massive infrastructure project continue to balloon.

"After you've examined your wall prototypes on the border, I invite you to head north to the Central Valley - the heart of California". The federal Justice Department recently filed a lawsuit over sanctuary city legislation, and California has filed a suit at the federal government over plans to expedite construction of the border wall. "Here in cities like Fresno and Madera, more than a dozen bridges and viaducts are being built for the nation's first and only high-speed rail line", Brown wrote. The governor says California is focusing on bridges, not walls, and adds that the project has put 1,700 people to work. "And that's more than just a figure of speech", Brown wrote.

"California leads the country in job creation, innovation, environmental protection and gun control", Lara said.

While details of the Trump visit remain clouded in secrecy, he is scheduled to attend an evening fundraiser for his reelection campaign when he visits California for the first time in his presidency and Los Angeles police and sheriff's officials are ready for spontaneous protests.
