Default Trump threatens to cut US funding for California wildfires

Trump threatens to cut US funding for California wildfires

Nov 3, 2019 1:29 PM EST LOS ANGELES — President Donald Trump is threatening to cut U.S. funding to California for aid during wildfires that have burned across the state during dry winds this fall.

Trump tweeted Sunday that California Gov. Gavin Newsom has done a “terrible job of forest management.” He tweeted that when fires rage, the governor comes to the federal government for help. “No more,” he said.

Read entire article & California Gov. Gavin Newsom's response () below:

He threatened the same thing last year, I wonder if the Federal budget for fighting wildfires was increased or decreased since then

Hey dumbass (trump)
ALOT of the upkeep of our *forests* is the federal govt's responsibility.


And fwi.....the forests didnt burn. In 2017 it was suburban housing developments.
Idiot.


Now are there somethings that could be done better?
Yes. And we saw them this time. MASSIVE response from local govt, nearby depts
(fire/police/sheriffs/OES) and out of state firefighters not to mention the inmate firefighters out fighting this fire.
PG&E shut power and in some cases gas as well to keep this fire from doing what the Tubbs fire and the Camp fire did. Wiping out whole towns.
Evacuations from Sonoma county all the way to the county line (Marin) and out to the coast.
Zero lives lost this time as opposed to 80 something in Tubbs.


Some here think it was overkill. I do not. Was it cruddy? yes. Was it necessary? I say yes.
did it SUCK with no power for 4-5 days? oh hell yes. I was lucky in that I did not have to leave my home. So there is that.
I did lose everything in my freezers and fridges. No idea how much in dollars that is, but I did lose alot of food due to thawing and spoilage.
So what. Yes I will have to replace just about everything in there, but Im waiting a bit just in case. So for now....I have a clean fridge. (wow)



Trump is an ass. (sorry if you are feel differently)

Personally? I think he is a twit. It's a very unpopular opinion here in rural north Texas but I don't care. The man is a twit.

An excellent article I saw this morning. Explains alot.
trump might want to actually read it. It even has pretty colored pictures to help explain things. Like how many of CA's forests are managed by the US Govt.
