WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that he is cutting off federal money to fight California wildfires, claiming the money is being wasted.
“Billions of dollars are sent to the State of California for Forrest fires that, with proper Forest Management, would never happen,” Trump tweeted. “Unless they get their act together, which is unlikely, I have ordered FEMA to send no more money. It is a disgraceful situation in lives & money!”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, replied, saying Trump’s “threat insults the memory of scores of Americans who perished in wildfires last year & thousands more who lost their homes.”
Pelosi said House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy, another Californian, “must join me to condemn & call on POTUS to reassure millions in CA that our govt will be there for them in their time of need.”
It’s clear that if you’re a blue state or territory like Puerto Rico that Trump will try to do anything he can to punish you.
MAGA; Mueller ain't going away.
