District Square’s fortunes could turn around on […]

Pentagon Halts Border Wall Projects in California and Arizona, Citing Insufficient Funds

The Defense Department has decided not to proceed with three border wall projects in California and Arizona, citing “insufficient contract savings,” according to a court filing.

Last month, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper approved an additional 20 miles of 30-foot-high barriers for the […]

Protest Likely to Greet Trump During Fundraising Trips to Bay Area, L.A., San Diego

President Donald Trump is making a rare visit to California, a Democratic stronghold where he is expected to rake in millions of dollars during a series of fundraisers for his reelection effort that are almost certain to be met with jeering protests.

His visit Tuesday and Wednesday signals that despite the state’s decidedly leftward swing in recent years there are still plenty of wealthy Republicans who support him. […]
