WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:


  • In a series of tweets on Sunday, President Donald Trump criticized California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s “terrible job of forest management.”
  • Trump even threatened to cut off future federal funding to the state unless the Democrat governor stops listening to his environmentalist “bosses” and “clean” the forest floors.

President Donald Trump slammed Gov. Gavin Newsom on Sunday morning by hinting there won’t be any more federal funding to continue fighting the wildfires unless California improves its forest management system.

Trump tweeted that the Democrat governor has “done a terrible job of forest management,” saying that Newsom should stop listening to his environmentalist “bosses” and “clean” the forest floors.

The president suggested in a spate of postings on Twitter, the federal government will not be giving the state any additional funding to help battle the wildfires.
