Trump Threatens To Cut Off Federal Funding For California Wildfires As Blazes Ravage The State




President Donald Trump is threatening to cut federal financial aid to California as wildfires continue to ravage the Golden State.

Trump tweeted Sunday that California Gov. Gavin Newsom has done a “terrible job of forest management.”

“I told him from the first day we met that he must ‘clean’ his forest floors regardless of what his bosses, the environmentalists, DEMAND of him. Must also do burns and cut fire stoppers,” Trump said in a tweet.



“Every year, as the fire’s rage & California burns, it is the same thing-and then he comes to the Federal Government for $$$ help. No more. Get your act together Governor. You don’t see close to the level of burn in other states,” he added.

Trump also said teams are working well to put out the “massive, and many” fires.

“Great firefighters! Also, open up the ridiculously closed water lanes coming down from the North. Don’t pour it out into the Pacific Ocean. Should be done immediately. California desperately needs water, and you can have it now!” he tweeted.

The president’s tweets come as several wildfires burn in the northern and southern parts of the state.




According to the Los Angeles Times, the Kincade fire, burning north of San Francisco, is the largest active blaze in the sate. The wildfire has burned more than 77,000 acres since it began last month and is 74 percent contained.

“You don’t believe in climate change,” Newsom responded on Twitter. “You are excused from this conversation.”
