California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon wrote a scathing response to Vice President Mike Pence regarding the Trump administration and its policies.
On February 28, Pence wrote to Rendon wishing him a “productive and successful legislative session.” He also mentioned that the entire Trump administration “has embraced federalism and the role states play in our Nation’s constitutional order.
Additionally, Pence told Rendon that the Trump administration recognizes the fact that America succeeds when California succeeds.
In response, the California Assembly Speaker told the Vice President, “I would have to say you and the President have already done quite a bit to help us with that [referring to the successful legislative session.”
Rendon noted that the Trump administration’s policies convinced California voters to add five Democrats to the Assembly in the last election. He also mentioned that one Republican decided to join the Democratic Party because of the President’s agenda. “We now have a three-quarters majority—plus one,” wrote Rendon.
