Trump just tweeted to demand $3.5 billion back from California NOW

A few minutes ago:

California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars. They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!

A nice sentiment Mr. President, but that money has been pissed away.  What a waste.

What an awesome tweet.

2. You pay us...THE US TAXPAYERS back.

50 million for a virtual golf machine or what ever the hell it is. It is just one more ORANGE disaster bilking us for your toys.

FUG HIM!
You know it's a good tweet if it has the primitives sputtering and babbling incoherently.

3. I miss sanity.

When this nightmare is over and MSM agents skedaddle into the corners, I hope AOC and Omar hold twitters BOD and jack accountable for allowing him this platform
They just want to shut him up because he's right and they know it.

10. How much did his pointless gov't shutdown cost CA taxpayers?

Deduct it from the 3.5B
Pay up, suckers.

Thanks again for the great tweet, President Trump.

This. THIS is why I’m glad they capped the SALT deductions. WE subsidize those states budgets. Now their tax payers can take it up with their state legislators.

Somehow I suspect she**2 pays no taxes.  I'd suggest it's under the table or covers but jism ain't on my mind so I'll
just suggest it try to raise above the Amoeba it's emulating while dividing half its sqrt(worth**2);

I thought she(it) should know.

It was 50K not million. He paid for it out of pocket. He replaced an older system Obama had in place (no idea how Obama paid for it). Eat a bag of dicks.

"The president replaced the old system that was there," a White House official said. "He paid for the new one, including installation, personally. He has not used it since it’s been installed."

A source confirmed to NBC News that President Barack Obama had an older, less sophisticated golf simulator.

Geez! How hard is this to understand! California received $3.5B to build something. Governor Nuisance said it wouldn't be built. So of course the State of California owes the Federal government that $3.5B.

But of course, Orange Man BAD!

seems like a legitimate request to me.  The Federal government sent money to california to do a specific task.  The new governor said the task is not going to finished, so the money that was earmarked for that task needs to be returned.
Trump Won.  Get over it!

I love the part about the MSM agents. It's as plain as day that the only thing keeping Trump in office and out of trouble is all of the main street media agents who are covering for him.
