In his inaugural speech, incoming California Gov. Gavin Newsom plans to criticize President Donald Trump’s “incompetence” and call for California’s liberal government to serve as a contrasting example for the nation.
“People’s lives, freedom, security, the water we drink, the air we breathe – they all hang in the balance. The country is watching us,” he will say, according to excerpts from his prepared speech. “We will offer an alternative to the corruption and incompetence in the White House.”
