In case you missed it! The Record: Trump hasn’t said much about California water, but he did tell a Fresno audience at a rally in May that there is no drought at all, and that the water that farmers should have received was flushed out to sea in an effort to protect “a certain kind of 3-inch fish,” a reference to the imperiled Delta smelt. “Believe me, we’re going to start opening up the water so that you can have your farmers survive,” Trump said at the time.
