Trump to stop federal relief aid for California wildfires

Trump to stop federal relief aid for California wildfires

President Donald Trump said he's ordered FEMA to cut off money to California over his criticism of forest management. It is a disgraceful situation in lives & money!' Trump added.

In a Wednesday morning tweet, Trump complained that "billions of dollars" are sent to California to combat forest fires, but claimed that with "proper Forest Management (sic)" the fires would "never happen". Eventually, #ForrestTrump even started trending. "When fires strike or the earth shakes, [California] needs to be prepared", Newsom tweeted Tuesday, his first full day in office. "The people of CA - folks in Paradise", a community that was among the hardest hit by the Camp Fire past year, "should not be victims to partisan bickering". If so, it's not working well so far, since Pelosi instantly responded by fingering Trump's buddy and her fellow Californian, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and demanding that he join her in defending their state from Trump's destructive threats.

Craig Fugate, the head of FEMA under President Barack Obama, said he knew of no way Trump could stop sending money for wildfires for which he has already issued a disaster declaration, which he has for the record fires of the past two years.

The Camp Fire broke out on the morning of November 8 near the mountain community of Paradise, California, sweeping through the town and killing at least 86 people, in the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in state history. And numerous state's worst fires don't happen in forests at all. State officials have also pointed out that more than half of the California's forests are owned and managed by federal agencies.

Rachel Zane's character could be making a return to 'Suits , ' if the TV bosses get their way at least. The source also said that the scene could be filmed in the United Kingdom to fit in with her schedule.

The Northern California wildfire of 2018 killed at least 85 people and destroyed thousands of buildings across the state, obliterating the entire town of Paradise.

Newsom also pitched an additional $105 million to help California prevent and battle wildfires.

Trump started this fire and he'll have to figure out some way to put it out that doesn't just look like a nasty jab at the nation's largest state.

FEMA is running on a thin staff because of the partial government shutdown. On other occasions Trump has adopted a right-wing conspiracy theory blaming California wildfires on state water policies he pretty clearly does not understand.
