'Bridges, not walls:' Brown invites Trump to visit high-speed rail construction

Governor Jerry Brown has also invited the president to Central Valley to view the state's high-speed rail construction project, but it's not clear if President Trump will take up the invitation.

During his visit, Trump will first go to San Diego, where he plans to personally inspect eight border wall prototypes.

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.

Brown noted that President Harry Truman used his first trip to California in 1945 to witness the signing of the charter establishing the United Nations in San Francisco, while President Lyndon Johnson met with the president of Mexico during his first presidential visit to California in 1964. "Your continuing success is essential to the success of our national economy". "Well, Mr. President, in California we are trying to fix that", Brown wrote in a letter Monday. California added nearly 3 million jobs since the recovery began.

President Trump is set to visit California and one of his stops will be at the U.S. -Mexico border.

"In the call on February 20, (Peña Nieto) strongly reiterated what all Mexicans have always said: we will never pay, in any form, for a wall on theborder", Videgaray posted on Twitter.

"I mean, frankly, if I wanted to pull our people from California, you would have a crying mess like you've never seen in California", Trump said weeks ago, warning there would be "crime like nobody has ever seen crime in this country". And that's more than just a figure of speech.

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