About 12 percent of Americans live in California, a state that voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton in November. Now that President Trump has taken office, California officials are vowing to fight back against federal policies they say run counter to the will of state voters. In response, Trump has threatened to withhold federal funding from California. It is unclear if this is legally possible. Currently, about a third of the state budget ($96 billion) comes from the federal government, including money to fund education and healthcare. States in open conflict with the federal government is nothing new. During the Obama administration, Texas sued the federal government 48 times.
