Trump Tours Area Devastated by Wildfire with California Governor

SAN FRANCISCO – United States President Donald Trump visited on Saturday the area devastated by a giant wildfire that has been spreading in northern California since last week, together with California Gov. Jerry Brown, whose government he accused days before of bad forest management.

“There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor,” Trump had said. “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 put aside his criticisms on Saturday and adopted a more conciliatory tone, noting the need for the federal and California governments to work together on the tasks of reconstruction and aid for the victims. He toured part of the burnt-out area with Brown himself.

“Nobody thought this could happen...We have to do management, maintenance. We’ll also be working with environmental groups. I think everybody’s seen the light,” the president said in a statement to the media.

Also accompanying Trump was the politician who will be Brown’s successor starting next January, the Democrat Gavin Newsom, along with Mayor Jody Jones of Paradise, a town of some 26,000 people that was completely engulfed in flames.

According to the latest report, the Camp Fire, as the blaze has been dubbed, has caused at least 71 deaths, while more than 1,000 people are still missing and the fire has scorched 59,900 hectares (148,000 acres).

After visiting the region laid waste by the Camp Fire, Trump is heading for Southern California to tour the zone affected by another huge blaze, the Woolsey Fire, close to Los Angeles and where another three people have died.
