Response to article about “California v Trump” — Request for Interview: Please interview “us”
Thank you for covering how California is already acting independently from the Federal government and resisting Trump. http://www.latimes.com/business/hiltzik/la-fi-hiltzik-california-v-trump-20180727-story.html
The Calexit movement saw this article, and particularly this request for interviews.
“We’ll telling personal stories reflecting how Trump policies affect individuals, families and communities in California, and reporting what the state can and should do about them. We’re open to hearing your stories; feel free to send us tips at CalVsTrump@latimes.com.”
- We hope LA Times will be interviewing members of the Calexit movement.
- Also a response to ‘resisting Trump’.
- 1/3 of Californians supported Calexit according to multiple polls.
The Calexit movement has been inspired by LA Times reporting on the idea of Calexit — since before the movement was well known, from 2004 through 2016. SEE below
Clearly the LA Times is still interested in the idea of California being a nation — given this article offered these two quotes: “The state also has pushed back against administration initiatives taking aim at California’s national leadership” & “if it were a country, it would have the fifth-biggest economy in the world”.
Please consider interviewing some of the 12.5 MILLION CALIFORNIANS who were interested in this idea OR some of the 44,000 members who are part of the movement TODAY.
I can put you in touch with some of them.
Sincerely [REPLACE WITH YOUR NAME AND LINKS]
