Donald Trump, the President of the United States, is going to visit the affected areas in California on Saturday. He will access the damage and is also planning to meet victims and their families.
Just a few days ago, Donald Trump rebuked the forest department saying the management of the Forest Department is very poor and most likely, he will withdraw federal funding from the forest department. He said, “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!” Trump was heavily criticised for this statement.
