California Gov. Gavin Newsom says he can’t even remember why he called on President Donald Trump to resign.
“That was during a campaign,” the Democrat told The New York Times. “It’s just so indicative of this moment, I couldn't even tell you. It was 4,623 tweets ago.”
Newsom said he is now looking to have a productive relationship with the president.
“I hope so,” Newsom told the newspaper. “I don’t know. But I’m pursuing that because it’s just too damn important. And the risks are too great to bear.”
The Hill noted a review of Newsom’s comments from January 2018 showed he strongly had objected to Trump reportedly using a vile term to describe several African nations, as well on Haiti and El Salvador. Trump had denied eyewitness accounts that he had used the term.
The Times said Newsom had called the president “a joke and a racist” back then.
