President Donald Trump slammed California Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom as a possible competitor Sunday on Fox News, stating he was “so much bullsh*t.”

Trump appeared on “Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo” to discuss a handful of election points as the 2024 race continues.

Fox host Maria Bartiromo questioned the 45th president on what he thinks about his potential Democrat competitor, noting that Trump had previously stated he didn’t believe it would be President Joe Biden.

“Now, you’ve said you don’t even think that’s who you’re going to face off in November. Is he [Biden] going to be the nominee?” Bartiromo asked.

While Trump stated that he didn’t “personally” believe Biden would be his potential competitor following the GOP presidential candidate elections, Bartiromo pressed the president on other possible candidates, such as Newsom

“Personally, I don’t think so,” Trump stated. 

“Who is it? Who will the Democrats pick up? Well, Gavin Newsom’s right out of central casting. How about Gavin? How are you going to do up against Gavin Newsom?” she questioned.

Trump continued by calling out Newsom and his governing record, highlighting top issues for the blue state, such as homelessness and the infamous mass exodus. Trump notably stated that he believed Newsom would be “easy” competition because of his “disaster” record.

“I tell you what because he’s so much bullsh*t. He wants to say how wonderful – it’s [California] doing horribly. His state is doing horribly. You look at the homeless problem. You look at the people that are leaving. You have companies that are leaving. They’re all leaving for other locations. I think Gavin’s easy because California’s a disaster. He has been a horrible governor,” Trump stated.

Questions surrounding Biden as the Democratic presidential nominee have circulated among the president’s own party, with many questioning his age as a worrying factor. A CNN poll conducted by SSRS in September 2023 found that 56 percent of Democrats worry about Biden’s physical and mental stamina.

While names, such as Newsom, have been speculated as possible backups, the California governor has continued to push back against rumors of running in the Democratic primary. During a recent interview with ABC, Newsom adamantly defended Biden’s age by stating that he had “no issues whatsoever,” highlighting the president’s daily work. 

“We all spend time with Biden. I mean, three hours on photo lines on three events a day, then giving speeches. Are you kidding? At 80 years old, to be in that kind of health? I have no issues whatsoever,” Newsom stated.

While California remains the most populous state due to its 39 million residents, locals have been fleeing the state in mass numbers since the pandemic for other options such as Arizona, Nevada, and Texas, according to ABC 7.

A new policy brief from the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research recorded that many people who moved out of the state had moved due to the high cost of living, as well as viewing California as having more crime than other states like Arizona or Texas. 

As California holds roughly 12 percent of the United States population, homelessness has overwhelmed the state as it currently holds 28 percent of the nation’s homeless, according to The San Francisco Standard.

Within the Golden State, 68 percent of the homeless population is considered unsheltered, with large cities such as San Francisco and Los Angeles being visibly affected by the crisis, the outlet reported.

Between 2022 and 2023, data from the Housing and Urban Development Department showed that roughly 10,000 people became homeless, with the state accounting for 49 percent of all unsheltered people in the country, The San Francisco Standard reported.

Comparatively, the number of unsheltered people in California is roughly eight times the amount in Florida, according to the outlet.
