Yes, the commander-in-chief, President Trump, will visit California later this month. While here, he's expected to peruse prototypes for his long-heralded border wall in San Diego and attend a Republican fundraiser in Los Angeles.

Jack Pitney on the U.S. News report:

It's really a tale of two states. For a lot of people, California is a great place to live. We have all the attractions, we have the cultural diversity and all of the intellectual resources, so it's a terrific place in that respect. 

But, as Carla pointed out, it's not a great place to be poor. According to the US Census Bureau, the supplemental poverty measure, we actually have the highest poverty rate in the United States. So it's great for a lot of people, but for some Californians, not so great.
