The Oregon Governor just tried to outdo the Oakland Mayor by defying Trump
President Trump announced that he wants to send members of the National Guard to secure our southern border.
Democrat “resisters” have cried foul.
And now the Oregon governor just made a fool of herself with this tweet.
According to the Associated Press, the governors of Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas have all supported Trump’s decision to secure the border.
In other words, states that share a border with Mexico (and aren’t ruining themselves by becoming a sanctuary state like California) support Trump’s plan.
But not everyone’s on board.
Oregon Governor Kate Brown (D) lashed out against securing the border on Twitter.
If @realDonaldTrump asks me to deploy Oregon Guard troops to the Mexico border, I’ll say no. As Commander of Oregon’s Guard, I’m deeply troubled by Trump’s plan to militarize our border.

The Associated Press reports:
Democratic Gov. Kate Brown of Oregon said she would not send troops if asked because she is “deeply troubled by Trump’s plan to militarize our border.”
Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, a Democrat, said he would never deploy National Guard troops “based simply on the whim of the President’s morning Twitter habit.”
A fifth-generation Arizona rancher who is an outspoken supporter of Trump’s border wall said he was “absolutely elated” by the president’s National Guard deployment plans.
Kate Brown is one of the most liberal governors in the country and Oregon is a “sanctuary state.”
Democrat politicians are jumping on the “Resistance” bandwagon.
They think they can raise their national profile – and possibly make a run at the White House by defying Trump.
But they are only proving they care more about illegal immigrants than the American citizens in their own states.
