President Trump told farmers and ranchers in California Wednesday that he was delivering on a campaign promise by taking executive action to deliver more irrigation water to them.
“I promised to help solve the water crisis that was crippling our farmers due to chronic mismanagement and misguided policies,” Mr. Trump said at an event with rural stakeholders in Bakersfield, in the heart of the state’s farm-rich Central Valley.
The president ceremoniously signed a revamping of water-use rules that could provide more water by December from Northern California to farms in the central and southern parts of the state.

“It’s going to change the whole state,” Mr. Trump promised. “You have so much water, you don’t know what to do with it.”
