Xavier Becerra, California’s top prosecutor, emerges as Trump nemesis



LOS ANGELES — Xavier Becerra played a fair amount of poker in his younger days. So, when the California attorney general thinks today about his most frequent adversary, President Donald Trump, he recalls players who came to the table with massive stacks of chips.

The high rollers could be intimidating.

“You know this guy can bet big anytime he wants,” Becerra said recently in Sacramento. “But, more often than not, those guys with those massive trays of chips would lose, because there is always someone at the table who knows how to play those guys. And I am thinking that is the way it is with Donald Trump.”
