President Donald Trump excoriated the Governor of California on Saturday for pardoning five convicts facing deportation.
“Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown pardoned 5 criminal illegal aliens whose crimes include (1) Kidnapping and Robbery (2) Badly beating wife and threatening a crime with intent to terrorize (3) Dealing drugs,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Is this really what the great people of California want?”
Brown earned the “Moonbeam” nickname when he was governor in 1970 and floated ideas for a California space academy and launching a satellite for emergency communications.
Brown issued 56 pardons and 14 commutations ahead of Easter, which lands on Sunday. Among them were the five ex-convicts Trump referenced.
