Trump Says Has Halted US Funds for California Wildfires, Forest Management

Posted January 10, 2019

Trump tweeted Wednesday that California gets billions of dollars for fires that could have been prevented with better management. "It is a disgraceful situation in lives & money!" he said, referring to the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Trump's tweet today comes as he faces heat over the ongoing government shutdown, in which FEMA is partially affected.

The state's former top firefighter, Ken Pimlott, disagrees with Trump's assessment.

California Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom speaks after being elected governor of the state during an election night party in Los Angeles, California, U.S. November 6, 2018. It is considered the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in the state's history.

Democrats Pass Bill To Reopen Government, Shutdown Continues
Democrats won the majority of the House in the November mid-term elections, and the new representatives were sworn in on Thursday. The fact is a wall is an immorality. "We're talking about border security", Pelosi said in an interview with Today on January 3.

The threat, issued on twitter, was immediately taken as a shot at new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who on Tuesday night countered Trump's prime time speech on immigration by mocking his "obsession" with a border wall. Newsom said they had "been put in office by the voters to get things done, not to play games with lives".

"Disasters and recovery are no time for politics". "I'm already taking action to modernize and manage our forests and emergency responses". The small Butte County town of Paradise, home to 26,000 people, burned down, leaving many to evacuate to nearby Chico.

Trump has blamed the state's devastating infernos on everything from a lack of raking to a nonexistent water shortage resulting from "bad environmental laws".

Additionally, a little more than half of forestland in California is owned and managed by the federal government. That includes vowing to withdraw Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers as a punishment for some of the state's immigration policies.

Last month, Trump signed an executive order to boost logging and forest thinning on more than 4 million acres of federal lands to combat extreme wildfires.

Trump has visited the country's most populous state only twice since becoming president, including to survey fire damage in November.

The 2018 wildfire season in California was the worst in living memory, consuming almost 2 million acres of land, killing 87 people, destroying tens of thousands of homes, requiring an estimated $3 billion in public expenditures for debris removal, and costing insurance companies over $9 billion in payments.

Cardiff manager Neil Warnock said that early goal was a heavy blow: "When we start off like that we shoot ourselves in the foot". It was beaten 5-1 at Manchester United just before Christmas and was also thrashed 5-0 by Man City at home in September.
