Trump Mulls Role in Bid to Recall California Governor Gavin Newsom

Former President Donald Trump is considering whether to add his voice to the bid to recall Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom and could hold rallies in the state if a runoff election is triggered later this year, reports the Washington Examiner.

"He is weighing holding rallies in California over the next couple of months," according to a Bloomberg

Close Trump ally Richard Grenell is reportedly weighing a potential run.

A recent Berkeley IGS poll shows Newsom's approval rating declining sharply since September:

Californians are reevaluating their views of the job Gavin Newsom is doing as governor.  The latest Berkeley IGS Pollconductedonline last week among over 10,000 registered voters finds just 46% approvingof Newsom’s performanceas governor, while 48% disapprove, 31% of whomdisapprove strongly. Thisrepresentsa big shift in public sentimentfrom last year when large majorities approvedof the job Newsom was doing.

As I have discussed before, Newsom and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo have to go

Trump entering the fray would certainly wake up the more conservative parts of the inland (non-coastal) empire during a runoff election.



  1. It would shut down the Democrats who are supporting the recall. Without the Democrats the recall will struggle to succeed.

    1. Recall is pretty much a fait accompli at this point.

  2. I hope Trump does not get involved. It's a grassroots effort right now based on Newsom's bad policies and blatant hypocrisy. If Trump gets involved it turns into a vote down the line situation and we know which way CA goes.

  3. Just for the triggering effect, it would be fun to see Trump run for Governor of CA.

  4. The 'system' in California ain't gonna fix itself. It's a third or fourth-world country without the Deep State/Silicone Valley. One look at the vagrant and homeless cities and the amount of 'scamming' involved with the 'stimmmy' checks is proof enough. It's beyond repair politically.
