Trump's First Visit to LA as President Met by Opposition​​​​​​​

    President Donald Trump is in Los Angeles for the first time since taking office. He was welcomed by an unprecedented security detail of federal and local law enforcement agencies as a swift downpour threatened to disrupt a mass protest tonight.

    Before arriving in San Diego this morning, President Trump feuded with Governor Jerry Brown saying California was run poorly and that the place is totally out of control.
