As Donald Trump continues to embarrass the United States in front of world leaders at the G-20 Summit, California Governor Jerry Brown went there to do some damage control.
Trump began his trip by making a racist speech in Poland in which he used white supremacist code words such as “Western values,” and insulted the people of Poland by downplaying their horrific experiences during World War II. Trump was even snubbed by the Polish First Lady when he tried to shake her hand.
Now Trump is at the G-20 Summit, where he is planning to meet with Vladimir Putin and discuss issues that are far above his head.
Trump has done nothing but humiliate himself and America so far. And that’s why Jerry Brown decided that he would make an appearance in Hamburg, Germany.
Focusing primarily on climate change and other environmental issues, Brown went to Hamburg and spoke to 12,000 people who actually wanted to hear a real American leader speak, unlike Trump who had to have a rent-a-crowd brought in to cheer for him in Poland.
“It’s hard to grasp the mortal danger that climate change represents,” Brown said. “I believe that California, New York, France and Germany and the other countries — we have to get our act together, strengthen our commitment and bring as many nations along as we can.”
“It’s up to you and it’s up to me and tens of millions of other people to get it together to roll back the forces of carbonization and join together to combat the existential threat of climate change,” Brown continued before blasting Trump and assuring the world that Trump doesn’t speak for most Americans. “Yes, I know President Trump is trying to get out of the Paris agreement, but he doesn’t speak for the rest of America. We in California and in states all across America believe it’s time to act, it’s time to join together and that’s why at this climate action summit we’re going to get it done.”

Jerry Brown is the leader America needs right now. He has turned California around after years of Republican control nearly sank it. Trump is nothing but an embarrassment who is hell-bent on destroying the country and our reputation around the globe. America has become a laughingstock because of him.
