Trump threatens to cut federal funding for California wildfires

US President Donald Trump has threatened to cut federal funding for the wildfires sweeping California, in a Twitter spat with the state’s governor. California Gov. Gavin Newsom has done a ’terrible job of forest management,’ Trump tweeted. When fires rage, the governor comes to the federal government for help. ’No more,’ the president tweeted.

Holy smokes! This is a 110% impeachable QUID PRO QUO as Trump is demanding Newsom and his state actually spend the aid money that the rest if the country paid via federal taxes be used efficiently.

Have they tried building fire defences out of homeless people? Two birds, one stone and all that.

I totally support ceasing payments to California until they fix their busted land management policies, sounds like a great idea. Trump needs to carry through on the threat.

I had a chat with a woman from Arizona the other night. Seems our state is really disorganized when it comes to fighting fires. Or another way to ask, if this is all because of global warming, why is a state on the same planet doing a better job controlling the chaos of wildfires?

If you are concerned about wildfires, you can request a permit to cut brush on your property. Once you receive permission from the state, you will need to follow strict guidelines for disposal of the waste. You can't burn it without another permit, and even with that permit, you must not build a pile bigger than 4' in diameter, which means you'll be burning brush piles for months.

Good. CA is a perfect example of what happens when a member of the top ten economic world powers are run by socialists.

Trump looks like the dad saying “I’m not angry, I’m just disappointed in your choices.” Little boy: “I know dad. “

Newsome seems to be blaming climate change? What a goof. Weather isn’t climate, remember!

Misleading fake news headline. California (the governor) gives most of their money for wildfires to the homeless and illegal aliens.

He's right though the fucking morons import super flammable eucalyptus and then suspend almost all controlled burns and 20 years later the state is just a big Forest fire begging to burn
