Seems to me that tit for tat is a game California will lose at. Why even try? They recieve over 12 billion a year in HUD and SNAP funding. They stop sending the Feds tjeir share and this could be cut.

Well, if Trump threatens withdrawing Federal money being sent to the State of California, then there's no reason that the State of California should uphold their money transfers back to Washington.
There are repercussions for Trump's actions, and he hasn't thought ANY of them through.

Let's say they secede and become their own nation...
Hollywood, the main bread winner?
The cost of watching a movie will skyrocket!
You want some popcorn with those tears?
California is just a fictitious island anyway, nothing there is based on reality.

California makes its money off housing by having a housing shortage they can charge outrageous prices for housing right now i pay 1,200 a month rent for a one bedroom apartment. Getting rid of their sanctuary status would take away their artificial shortage on housing and prices would drop. The businesses that employ illegals would die out and someplaces would become a ghost town. California is dependent on illegal aliens and once the plug is pulled they are finished thats why

And if things follow through like some here want it too...
A whole lot of Americans will die by the hands of Americans..
You lot seem perfectly happy with that idea, and it sickens me.. you need to wake up America, before the blood starts to flow.. your being led by your ego's and partisanship into civil chaos.
The rest of the world is watching, and honestly.. your being judged by your actions.. and its not looking all that good for you right now.. if this is "America being great again".. the real world wants no part of it.
You'll be all alone, killing each other for.. well im still trying to understand just what it is you still stand for anymore other than cracking skulls and destroying nations for profit.. and now you've turned on yourselves..
Your sick, you need help.. but your kicking the chairs and leaving the building cursing all those that try to stop your decline.
