Whistleblower Drama Sends Media on the Next Frenzy – President Trump defended his July call with Mr. Zelensky as “totally appropriate” but declined to provide further details. “It doesn’t matter what I discussed,” he said. Opponents are charging the President as working with a foreign leader to aide his own reelection campaign for the 2020 race. The charge is that during this phone call, he repeatedly pressured the president of Ukraine to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden ’s son, urging Volodymyr Zelensky multiple times to work with Rudy Giuliani, his personal lawyer, on a probe.

Trump declaring war on California or actually pointing out the deficiencies of the local governments and the state government for addressing these problems and what seems to be a media cover-up of the facts at hand?
