The president said that no state has similar levels of forest fires

Trump threatens to cancel fire assistance to California; accuses Gavin Newsom of allowing claims

The Los Angeles Metropolitan Area records several fires.


President Donald Trump criticized the governor of California, Gavin Newsom for the fires that devastate that entity, stating that the Democrat did not do his job to avoid them.

In addition, the Republican threatened to stop federal financial aid.

"The governor of California, @gavinnewsom, has done a terrible forest work," said the president. “I told him from the first day that we met that he‘ should clean ’the floor of his forests, no matter what his bosses, the environmentalists, DEMAND of him. You should also do burns and cut firewalls ”.

He added that the same thing happens every year in the entity with forest fires and the local government asks the federal government for financial help.

"Every year, as the fire burns and California burns, it's the same, and then they go to the Federal Government for help $$$ (economic). No more. Act together, governor. No fire in other states achieves that level, ”he added.

The president celebrated the work of firefighters seeking to stop the fire.

“Great firefighters! Also, open ridiculously closed water lanes that descend from the north. Do not pour it into the Pacific Ocean. It must be done immediately. California desperately needs water, and they can have it now!”, Said the president without citing sources about his suggestions.

The fire in the wooded areas of California is unstoppable and a recent one burned in a few hours more than 3,520 hectares and forced to evacuate hundreds of residents affected since Friday southern California.

The fire was baptized as Maria fire and spread rapidly through the community of Santa Paula in Ventura County, 106 kilometers from the city of Los Angeles, and affected the farmland and farming towns of Somis and Saticoy, said the head of the county Fire Department of Ventura, Brian McGrath, at a press conference.

At least 7,000 people were evacuated, including hundreds of immigrants, who work in the area's crops.

More than 18,000 structures are at risk from fire that also affects large areas of crops.

The hundreds of firefighters dealing with the other seven major fires in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, which includes five counties, hope that weather conditions will help them control the flames and allow the hundreds of evacuees to return to their homes.

In northern California, the majority of the 180,000 residents of Sonoma County evacuated by the so-called Kincade fire were able to return to their homes, after they managed to contain the fire by 67%.

The flames of this incident have burned 31,467 hectares and destroyed 167 houses and 135 structures.

More than 1,600 homes remain threatened by Kincade, and 6,000 people must remain in shelters.

Governor Newsom maintains the state of emergency for the entire state due to fires, which have ravaged the state in the last week.
