With California seeing itself as championing "the resistance" and making threats of nullification of federal law, and with the feds threatening to arrest California officials, could California decide to take the resistance one step further and seize property in the state owned by the Trump Organization, such as the Trump National Golf Club in Palos Verdes (Los Angeles County), or the 555 California building in San Francisco? Maybe use eminent domain to seize the Trump National Golf Club and build housing for homeless transgender illegals on it? I wonder what the repercussions would be. (Trump's advocacy of Kelo v. New London and Agenda 21 would make him look like a hypocrite on this issue, but I'm curious as to how this would play out. I am definitely NOT advocating it, just considering what would happen under this scenario.)

Not without a compelling interest. Revenge is not such a one, and it would lose in court.

Any other nonsense?

I imagine a public purpose could be established for the taking of the golf club, like building low income housing or shelters on that land. It would be harder to establish one for taking the 555 California buliding.

Thread fail without a valid reason.

Not because the state is pissed.

Why would California do that?

Just let them go into bankruptcy.

If hate were reason enough to take one's property, there is no reason they should not be able to hate you as well and take your property from you.

Not advocating this, just wondering how this would play out.

Trump abused eminent domain to seize people's homes for his development projects. I wouldn't feel the least bit sorry for him if the table were turned on him.

So then, underhanded abuse of power justifies underhanded abuse of power. I see.

It would be just another example of California going rogue and proving they're an enemy of the US. The feds should just let them secede, cutting all federal aid and put guards on the border.
