Donald Trump really has had it in for the state of California. His first complaint was that it went to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential elections. POTUS has been trying to get even ever since, and this is how.

The White House has the absurd idea of allowing all vehicle manufactures to disregard California regulators’  emission standards requirements.

The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), under the many-scandaled Scott Pruitt, and the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) came up with an absurd plan. They suggested relaxing fuel efficiency rules and greenhouse gas emissions, and possibly freezing them.

In April, Pruitt declared that President Barack Obama’s plan to strengthen efficiency standards and make emissions stricter dead in the water. It was part of the EPA leader’s plan to kill off all President Obama’s regulations. That was how he managed to please the sitting president and retain his job for so long.

Under the Obama Clean Air Act, 44 gave California a waiver in 2009, so that the state could implement its own greenhouse gas emission standards for cars. California has always been the first to set up environmental standards.

In the Obama administration, the NHTSA and the EPA negotiated with the Golden State that the federal government would keep our national standard as the low bar. Then, California could have its own, stricter regulations.

In addition, the previous administration’s California waiver allowed automobile manufacturers to sell electric vehicles. Trump’s plan would wipe those out, too.

Now, Trump’s administration has begun its war with California. His oxymoronic “Safer and Affordable Fuel Efficient Vehicles Rule” supposedly compromises safety, although there was no proof to support that claim. Nonetheless, California Governor Jerry Brown declared he was ready for war.
