As California burns, President Donald Trump has put its Governor on notice: there will be no more federal funding in the wildfire battle unless the state gets its forest management act together.
In a series of tweets this morning, Trump said Gov. Gavin Newsom has “done a terrible job of forest management.”
“Every year, as the fire’s (sic) 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…”
Trump suggested opening water lanes from the North as a potential solution, along with cleaning forest floors of debris and controlled burns.
Later in the morning, Newsom responded. “You don’t believe in climate change. You are excused from this conversation.”
