Trump doubles down on his criticism of California amid wildfires

President Trump on Sunday posted another tweet in the wake of the devastating California wildfires.

“With proper Forest Management, we can stop the devastation constantly going on in California,” Trump wrote. “Get Smart!”

A day prior, he had tweeted: “There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!”

The president of the California Professional Firefighters was among those who criticized Trump’s tweet.

“The president’s message attacking California and threatening to withhold aid to the victims of the cataclysmic fires is Ill-informed, ill-timed and demeaning to those who are suffering as well as the men and women on the front lines,” Brian K. Rice said in a statement.

According to CNN, “The Camp Fire in Northern California has killed 23 people and burned 105,000 acres. The Woolsey Fire near Los Angeles has scorched 83,275 acres and the Hill fire in Ventura County 4,531 acres.”
