#BoycottSanFrancisco is going viral as San Francisco defends its sanctuary policies in the wake of the not-guilty verdict in the Kate Steinle murder trial.
On November 30, Breitbart News reported that a California jury found seven-time felon and five-time deported illegal alien Jose Garcia Zarate not guilty of murdering 32-year-old Kate Steinle in 2015 in the sanctuary city of San Francisco
President Trump responded to the not-guilty by tweeting:
The jury was not told the killer of Kate was a 7 time felon. The Schumer/Pelosi Democrats are so weak on Crime that they will pay a big price in the 2018 and 2020 Elections.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, local leaders denounced Trump’s position. State Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) said, “People have every right to be critical of the verdict and speak out about that…[but] the president is using this to fan the flames of hatred against immigrants, to demonize immigrants.”
Former State Sen. Mark Leno (D) also criticized Trump, claiming he has “no shame.”
Mayor Ed Lee’s (D) spokeswoman said, “San Francisco is and always will be a sanctuary city.”
Twitter users throughout the nation and the world reacted to the defense of sanctuary policies by taking #BoycottSanFrancisco viral.
