Trump threatens to stop federal aid for California wildfires

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom elected governor of California

FEMA is running on a thin staff because of the partial government shutdown.

The tweet has since been replaced with one that spells "forest" correctly.

President Donald Trump threatened again Wednesday to cut off FEMA wildfire relief to California because of its "disgraceful" mismanagement of the state's forests.

But this didn't stop people on Twitter from imagining Tom Hanks, who played the eponymous Forrest Gump, in lieu of forest management.

Twitter has been reshaping and repositioning itself to be one of the best places when it comes to live sporting events. They were tied with three holes to play, with Schauffele in the group ahead of Woodland.


As is always the possible case, White House social media director Dan Scavino, who sometimes tweets from Trump, could have shared the now deleted language containing the spelling error. He also joined Washington Governor Jay Inslee and Oregon Governor Kate Brown in a letter to Trump asking the administration to double its investments in taking care of federal land in Western states. Cutting off the state entirely from assistance available to Trump-friendlier jurisdictions regardless of their "Forrest Management" policies, would certainly put California Republicans, including McCarthy, in a very tough spot.

California Democrats reacted angrily Wednesday to Trump's decision. The November Camp fire became the nation's deadliest forest fire in a century, killing at least 85 people and destroying most of the city of Paradise.

"The immediate problem for fire victims is the first need, and threats to FEMA funding are not helpful and will not solve the longer term forest management regulatory problems", LaMalfa said of Trump's earlier tweet.

California utility PG&E Corp.is exploring filing some or all of its business for bankruptcy protection as it faces billions of dollars in liabilities in connection with fatal wildfires in 2018 and 2017, according to Reuters.

Daryl Osby, the Los Angeles County Fire Chief, said in November: "We're in extreme climate change now".

In a tweet, Trump accused the state of failing to properly manage its forests.

Trump's tweet comes a few months after he slammed state officials by accusing them of mismanaging the forests as the state dealt with a series of highly-destructive wildfires.

The FEMA website homepage says it is now "actively contacting California Wildfire survivors to determine their housing needs and working diligently to identify additional short-term and long-term housing options".

Newly-discovered exoplanet twice the size of Earth could have water
