Monster wildfires ravage California, Trump threatens funding cuts
California: At least nine people have been killed and more than 150,000 evacuated as two big wildfires rage north and south California in the United States .
According to officials five people of the dead were found in cars in a town that was destroyed by the Camp Fire in the north of California.
West of Los Angeles, the Woolsey Fire jumped a major highway and headed into coastal areas, including the town of Malibu where some homes are ablaze.
Authorities say the Camp Fire in the north and the Woolsey Fire and Hill Fire in the south are being fanned by strong winds and dry forests.
President Trump has responded by blaming what he called gross mismanagement of the forests and warned of funding cuts.
In a tweet, the President threatened to pull federal funding for the state if nothing is done to “remedy” the situation of recurring devastating wildfires and the response to these disasters.
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!
