Our country is divided between red states and blue states, a division that has intensified since the election of President Donald Trump. And some of the blue states are intensifying their resistance to the president. Most prominently, California, the country’s bluest and most populous state, led by Governor Jerry Brown. Brown has been governor of California twice — the first time, 40 years ago. He criticizes the president on taxes. California is suing the Trump administration over health care, immigration, and air quality, but nothing raises more righteous passion in Jerry Brown than the issue of climate change. He castigates the president for denying the science and aggravating a problem Governor Brown says is causing California to burn.

 

 

California is booming. Under Brown, it has grown from the 9th largest economy in the world to the 6th. It’s now bigger than France with a budget surplus of more than $7 billion.
