California’s far-left Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom announced on Thursday that he had joined 45th President Donald J. Trump’s social media platform Truth Social, claiming he’s done it to battle “Republican lies.”
Fox News reports:
“I know we’re all on this platform in search for the truth,” Newsom said in a video post. “But the truth is I’ve not been able to find a simple explanation for the fact that we have a red state murder problem.”
Newsom said that eight out of the top 10 states with the highest murder rates are Republican-run.
He said the “question is simple. What are the laws and policies in those states that are leading to such carnage?”
His post comes as several California cities run by progressives have come under fire for rising crime rates and “soft-on-crime” policies.
I just joined Trump’s Truth Social.
Going to be on there calling out Republican lies. This could get…interesting.
