The former governor also pointed to a contradiction between the conservative principle of statesā€™ rights and the behaviour of the Trump administration. ā€œHow many times have you heard conservatives beat the drum of statesā€™ rights?ā€ he asked. ā€œBut suddenly, when a state wants to pollute less and protect its citizens from deadly pollution, conservatives throw statesā€™ rights straight out the window.ā€ Californiaā€™s economic success, he said, was built on long-term planning. In contrast, the administrationā€™s ā€œknee-jerk reactionary policies such as the move to revoke our clean-air waiver create uncertaintyā€. ā€œThey didnā€™t ask for the Trump administrationā€™s backward thinking, and they know it wonā€™t help them,ā€ he said of four big car companies that have worked with California on limiting emissions. He added: ā€œCalifornia will fight this decision. And I promise you, we will win.ā€
