    Why corporate America is having a hard time jumping on the Trump train

    (Mark Boster / Los Angeles Times)

    Even as the GOP establishment and leading conservative groups are starting to warm to Donald Trump, a large and important segment of the Republican base has been conspicuously quiet: corporate America.


    Wall Street and the nation's business community have historically been dependable backers of the Republican Party, whose core values of reducing taxes and government regulation are most closely aligned with their own pro-business growth priorities.


    This election year, the choice should be particularly easy between Trump, a lifelong businessman, and a Democratic Party that has been pushed by Sen. Bernie Sanders to adopt an unusually harsh anti-business tone, calling for the breakup of big banks and sharp tax increases for the wealthy.


    Yet with the exception of a relatively small number of corporate leaders, such as oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens and casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, the business world, by and large, has been laying low, unwilling to associate publicly with a man whose highly contentious positions and freewheeling talk have raised concerns among a lot of ordinary Americans.

    Analysis: Why Bernie Sanders keeps popping up in California's out-of-the-way places

    (Mark Ralston / AFP/Getty Images)

    All week Bernie Sanders has galloped about California, showing up in places where presidential candidates usually don’t tread.


    On Sunday he was in Vista. On Tuesday he hit Riverside and San Bernardino. On Wednesday he was in Cathedral City and Lancaster. On Thursday, Ventura. On Saturday, he’ll be in Santa Maria.


    His Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, has stuck more to the traditional power centers for Democrats, visiting the Los Angeles area, Silicon Valley and San Francisco. Although she, too, meandered to the Inland Empire and Salinas this week.

    Meet the Chinese American immigrants who are supporting Donald Trump

    (Mark Boster / Los Angeles Times)

    Ling Zeng got celebrity treatment at this week’s Donald Trump rally in Anaheim.


    One after another, dozens of Trump supporters approached to snap pictures of Zeng and her friends, who wore matching T-shirts that read:

    “Chinese Americans love Trump.”


    After a campaign staffer invited the group to stand directly behind Trump's podium, the candidate took note.


    "Look at this, Chinese Americans!" Trump bellowed as he shook Zeng's hand.


    T-shirts notwithstanding, most Chinese Americans don't love Trump. Polls show that they, like Asian Americans more broadly, overwhelmingly disapprove of the brash businessman and presumptive Republican nominee, who has targeted illegal immigration, proposed a ban on Muslims, and frequently criticized China for stealing jobs from U.S. workers.


    Still, there is a small but vocal group of Chinese Americans who passionately support the candidate, brushing aside criticism from some Democrats that his rhetoric is racist. And while their numbers are slight, they represent significant trends in some parts of the Chinese immigrant population.

    Trump clinches GOP nomination and vows to back out of global warming pact

    (Spencer Platt / Getty Images)

    Hours after effectively clinching the Republican presidential nomination, Donald Trump vowed Thursday to withdraw the United States from the historic Paris agreement among 195 nations to cut greenhouse gas emissions in an effort to stop global warming.


    Trump, who has often dismissed the science on climate change as a hoax that threatens American jobs, promised to cut all U.S. spending on United Nations programs on global warming.


    Speaking at an oil and gas industry conference in Bismarck, N.D., he laid out an energy agenda that would rely heavily on fossil fuels and rescind Obama administration regulations aimed at addressing climate change.


    “In a Trump administration, political activists with extreme agendas will no longer write the rules, because that’s what’s happening now,” Trump said.

    Trump rally in Fresno draws protests

    Several hundred demonstrators chanted, held signs

    FRESNO, Calif. —Vocal protesters marched outside a Donald Trump campaign event Friday in Fresno, where numerous police were deployed following similar events around the country that led to violence and arrests.

    Several hundred demonstrators chanted, held signs and then began marching around the downtown Fresno arena where the presumptive Republican presidential nominee spoke to supporters. He was later to travel to San Diego as he campaigns ahead of California's June 7 primary.

    The Fresno protesters - a largely young and Latino crowd - chanted "keep hate out of our state" and held signs with slogans such as "Trump needs to be dumped." A fence separated demonstrators from the arena entrance.


    At one point a protester pulled at a gate but other demonstrators tried to calm him down. Police formed a line between the protester and the gate.

    Despite tense moments, there were no arrests by the time the rally ended.


    Ticket-holders arriving for the event took pictures of the protesters with their phones and fellow Trump supporters urged them to not respond to demonstrators.


    "We need to put up a wall to keep them out," said Trump supporter Christine Kinyoun, 44, of Hanford.


    Heading into the rally, Darrell Hedden, 59, of Hanford, said he thinks Trump would restore U.S. pride.


    "I came to see Donald Trump make history. He's going to make this country better," Hedden said.

    Jacqueline Saavedra, 18, traveled to Fresno from East Los Angeles to protest.

    "I have a family of immigrants," she said. "My father came here illegally to work in the fields. He did give us a better life. He's a good man. I'm here for my people."


    San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said her department prepared by speaking with police agencies in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Anaheim. Officers in uniforms and plain clothes will surround the San Diego event, she said.


    "For anyone who comes to disrupt, to do illegal activities, we will take swift and decisive action to make sure we have a peaceful event," Zimmerman said.


    Trump's appearances have brought together large numbers of supporters and protesters, often divided over his comments about immigrants and Muslims and his plan to build a wall on the Mexican border.


    At least eight people were arrested outside a Trump rally this week in Anaheim, a day after anti-Trump demonstrators in Albuquerque clashed with police.


    Demonstrators in the Orange County city of Costa Mesa last month damaged police cars and threw bottles, leading to 17 arrests.

    L.A. Times Amazed to Find Latinos Who Support Trump



    by JOEL B. POLLAK
    29 May 2016

    Los Angeles Times columnist Robin Abcarian visited the Donald Trump rally in Fresno last Friday, and reported that she found Latinos who actually support the Republican candidate.

    Who were these people, exactly, who could vote for a man who has called Mexicans rapists and murderers, who insulted the Republican Latina governor of New Mexico, who tweeted “I love Hispanics” as he ate a taco bowl at his desk on Cinco de Mayo?

    It turns out that many of them are American citizens or legal immigrants who care about the country’s borders, and share the same views as fellow conservatives Republicans on a variety of issues.

    His rhetoric about Mexicans doesn’t bother you, I asked?

    “It’s about illegal aliens!” Jennings said. “Mom and I can’t go to Canada and just squat and get benefits. We couldn’t go to Mexico either without the proper paperwork. They’d put us in jail!”




    “I’m Mexican,” Aderhold said, “and I understand that Mexicans do the farm labor, but there are a lot of legal ones. That’s how they should do it, the way my parents did.”

    Naturally, Abcarian let her own skepticism poke through: “In that case, good luck in a Trump administration to all the lettuce growers in Salinas. They can’t find enough people to pick their crops even now.”

    For a more conventional view, Abcarian spoke to protesters outside the arena:

    Outside the arena, it was easy to find Latinos who take a far dimmer view of Trump. Polls, after all, show that he is viewed negatively by a yuuuuge majority of Latino voters.

    Practically the first person I bumped into was Daniel Ortiz, a 66-year-old retired truck driver from Selma.

    He carried a homemade sign featuring a photo of Trump altered to look like Adolf Hitler. It said, “FU … Trump” and “Anything can happen if you don’t vote.”

    Arizona Gets Fed Up With Trump-Protesters… Makes Move EVERY State Should Follow

    In Arizona, it just became a lot more dangerous to carry out a protest that blocks traffic.

    Gov. Doug Ducey signed into law a piece of legislation that makes longer jail sentences possible for blocking traffic during protests — here’s looking at you, Trump protesters.


    The law will take effect on Aug. 6 and exponentially increases the maximum penalty from 30 days and $500 to six months and a $2,500 fine.


    The legislation also prevents public colleges and universities from restricting “noncommercial expressive activity,” according to Your West Valley. That actually was the original plan for the bill, HB 2548. The piece is long overdue — the limitation of free speech at a public institution is not only immoral, but pretty clearly unconstitutional.

    Before the bill was finished, it was decided that legislators would add the authority for stiffer sentences for those who block traffic en route to political rallies and government meetings — readers may remember how likely Republican nominee Donald Trump was blocked from entering a rally in Arizona back in march due to a mass of protesters.


    “These bills protect free speech throughout our college campuses and also ensure an individual’s right to engage in free speech isn’t shut down by someone else who disagrees with his or her perspective,” Ducey said.


    Ducey press aide Daniel Scarpinato expressed hope that the new penalties would cause people to think twice before attempting to prevent someone else from exercising their right to free speech.

    “That hopefully will create deterrent for people intruding on others’ abilities,” he said. “There’s a balance here of everyone getting their voice heard. And if someone is physically preventing someone from participating in exercising their constitutional rights, that is unacceptable.”

    State Sen. John Kavanagh, the man who sponsored the bill, agreed:

    “To stop somebody from going to a political rally to hear a candidate is not furthering the First Amendment. It is suppressing that person’s First Amendment right to assembly.”
