  • CounterGriefZombies says:

    If funding is cut california should stop paying taxes. They pay 1 trillion in taxes and get 500 billion back for funding. If anything our country leeches off them.

  • The deadly German Nazi is the main one behind the fires in California. He has to pull Federal Aid so the burning can continue! He needs to get revenge on America for destroying his Nazi comrades during World War II!

  • El Rey Del Dinero says:

    Ya next to the ocean cant even do something about the fire. Theres 1 thing 1 thing only get water system next to the ocean pump the water up to the mountains just how ya have sprinklers in ur yard have it underground having the water shooting up to the driest areas. Governor dont care about cali he just wants money. For the areas far from the ocean they can get water towers just for fires.

  • If the Governor can't manage his state…incompetent and negligent, he needs to be removed from office. Step down do your people a favor.

  • As a Californian I truly believe what trump is saying I kinda doubt tht the climate change is focused only on California

  • Democrat leadership is on the verge of ending California. It's shameful what has happened in these cities. Rolling blackouts! Third world living conditions. People just crap on the sidewalks in front of you. Drug addicts shoot up and toss the needles , also right out on sidewalks. Trash and bug and rat infestations. Leprosy and the plague, typhus , cholera. They ban vapeing and hand out needles for heroin. It's a backwards clown state run by greedy children.

  • patricia russell says:

    It's been many places but Trump is the child here he doesn't even remember what he says he is totally losing his mind

  • Trump is such a ditzy doo. Clean the forest floors? “It’s always California, no one else…”? He does understand that just the climate alone makes parts of California prime real estate for forest fires and what climate change has done has turned fire “season” into a year round threat. Can’t wait for this goof to be gone in 2020.

  • California should take responsibility for their actions!!!!! Same problem year after year fix it!! Its not the taxpayer's obligation to bail you out year after year. Very strange according to Newsome global warming only happens to California.

  • He's not wrong anybody who lives in CA and pays attention to the policies being passed its no wonder the president doesn't want us to get any money we waste it. We stopped deforestation… don't blame this on climate change. It never use to be like this when we use to clear brush and dead trees. We also have outdated power lines we wasted money on a speed train…..like maybe build some water reserves 1st since we have so much wasted water run off aheady and it makes water sob much more expensive. Im not in favor of trump but anybody trying to blame him is part of the problem get newson out of here!

  • Why are the same people who blame the fires on Climate Change also against clearing the land under the power lines from dead wood? 🤔

  • Trump doesn't get how the federal and state government works. He thinks you can do illegal things and get away with it. That's not calling truth to power.

  • Just when you think Trump can't get any dumber, he surprises! Up next, Trump considers cutting of Florida hurricane funding if they don't manage their oceans better!

  • why do almost all news outlets paint trump as an evil stepfather to america, when all he is saying is that the governor needs to focus on preventing these fires by cleaning the forests and fixing the faulty power lines…

  • How about pulling Federal aid for the CHEMTRAILS!?!?

    What's wrong with you people who pretend that you can't see that you're being sprayed like a COCKROACH?
    Are you blinded by your EGO? Kinda hard to think you are something special, if you're being sprayed like a cockroach, right? Cognitive dissonance!

    FIRES & CHEMTRAILS are connected. Bet.

  • President Trump told Newsom last year to get the necessary preventative work done or else. of course Newsome didn't fed money probably went in his own pocket just like his auntie Nancy.

  • They keep electing these people in CA. Good luck. Simple to look at the vegetation map of CA over-laid with a map of major fires over the last decade. Conclusion? Those areas have been turning from arable to arid and eventually desert for decades and centuries. While that is happening, do not build on those perimeters, and if you have, clean up the fuel that is laying around as a result of this process. The President nailed it. Unlike the fake NBC news.

  • Ignorance is bliss Trump definitely thinks the Earth is flat he said he's the chosen one so clearly he's the Antichrist the end days are here Revelations did say Earth would be destroyed by fire climate change is proof of that each year that goes by Earth gets dryer and dryer, it's not just going to be California that's on fire it will be the entire West Coast and it will spread East get ready🤦‍♂️😒

  • "You don't believe in climate change. You're excused from this conversation."
    This has nothing to do with climate change. You're excused from federal funding.

  • First you need to stop political corruption in California. Ponder this one ..you can literally drive to another state buy gas transport in back to California and make near 100% profit. Hauling gas illegally would be as profitable as selling drugs. We need to put and end to political corruption/voter fraud. All politicians should not be able to accept money from anyone for any reason while in office, It should be illegal for companies doing business with whatever country or the State to pay a politician or contribute to their campaigns. Family members should be banned from having government contracts like DiFi is so famous for. California politicians are organized crime. There should be quarter audits. Make the laws like narcotics laws if your a politician and if at any time it is found you took money all of your assets are subject to seizure. PGE will get a increase in what they can charge this will result in huge bonuses for PGE administrations. Newsome will get paid for his part.

  • Good it ain't a natural disaster its was done man and cutting corners that should never have been cut in the first place good job trump

  • dodgersfn Shepard says:

    California is a dumpster fire period. Fires started by a power company but demand federal aid? Newsome got called out and had no answer so divert the narrative, what trash.. California is sleeping in the bed it made. I wish no one harm but could care less if that fire ever goes out

  • They don’t use it to help the problem. They use it to line their sick agenda. People, get out of CA now. Electing Demoncraps obviously isn’t doing anything good for anyone.

  • Smith performance racing says:

    Common sense governor. Clean the woods up and won't have them type of issues going on. Guess fires are the way the governor prefers how to clean up the woods. 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔👎

  • Even the local WIld life fish & game knows you have to take care of.your forests in order.to prevent these predictable forest fires. Prevention is key. Or you can ignore it and react to what happens.

  • Artistic Endeavors says:

    The most disturbing aspect of Gavin Newsom is the fact that he is related to Nancy Pelosi. If we keep allowing the same families to lead, we can expect the same results. This applies to every nation on earth. This is a very good reason to at the least create term limits to all government positions as well as state and local. I seriously doubt Mr. Newsom would have gotten elected if the people knew this relationship existed. Another reason the media is biased as well. This lack of transparency must end or accountability, responsibility and liability may never see the light of a new day.

  • "Climate Change" believers are History deniers. Whenever the government claims that"The Science is settled" always ends in tragedy.

  • Raking the floor means clean the floor, he is saying using simple words similar a father to a child .because they don't understand controlled burning to CLEAR THE FLOOR of brush and debris, in the forest and home owners property. Sure it is expensive to do but what they are doing is saying let it burn the government is our insurance agent !!!!

  • Dallas DautermanDallas says:

    We've got a president with the intellectual development of a third grader but the criminal intellect of your average high school dropout.

  • When a president is too stupid to understand anything you explain to him about a wildfire…..trust me!
    You don't want that moron in charge of a complex nation.
    Trump is a fat blubbering blob sitting in front of a TV doing nothing all day except ranting how smart he is. Useless fool. He can not even be told, helped in anyway.
    GOD! Please see how dangerous Trump has already proved himself to be.

  • Do it Mr. Trump, or leave the fires burning till every Democrat is burnt out of California, Pelosi is only concerned about Impeachment, what is she doing about the Fires???

  • California is a hot spot for endangered species, over-population, pollution, cramped condition, trash, waste, habitat destruction, land erosion, habitat fragmentation. The list goes on and on.

    The fires are a direct link towards improper managment, human greed, and mass consumption.

  • I heard that PG&Es forced power outages are not being talked about because Gavin wants to run for president and if people know he’s running a state that periodically for days at a tome has no power he’d never make it
