CalWatchdog Morning Read – November 14

  • CalWatchdogLogoTrump splits Silicon Valley
  • What does Trump presidency mean for climate change efforts in CA?
  • How to make CA housing more affordable
  • What does Trump presidency mean for Mexican immigrants?

Good morning. Let’s talk about Trump. Now that voters have chosen Donald Trump as president, the country is wondering what it will mean for things like climate change, immigration, politics, the Republican Party — the list goes on.

So far, Trump has divided the Republican Party, taken large numbers of voters away from Democrats, and infused some Americans with optimism but others with despair.

Now, he has also laid bare latent political fractures within Silicon Valley, often seen as a more monolithic culture than it is. 

While some leading tech figures have been supportive or tolerant of Trump and his movement, others have responded to his election by expressing the strongest possible opposition — including a call for secession.

CalWatchdog has more.
