Trump to California: Give back money for train

United States President Donald Trump called upon California to return the $3.5 billion spent on a high-speed train project the Governor of California Gavin Newsom abandoned earlier this week.

"California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars. They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a 'green' disaster!" Trump tweeted.

Earlier, Newsom said he is abandoning the idea of a fast train that would connect Los Angeles and San Francisco because the project would cost too much and would take too long. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said that he'll work with Newsom and federal officials to "mitigate what has already been wasted on high-speed rail."
