"Very Sad To See" Trump Visits Devastated California Towns With Gov. Jerry Brown (Video)

President Trump was greeted with a sight of severe devastation as he met with California governor Jerry Brown at the decimated town of Paradise, California. The entire town was leveled by the Woosley wildfires which have claimed at least 71 lives with more than 1000 people still missing.

The fires have been the deadliest in the state's history, and the president offered his respects as he visited the site where many people lost everything they had including their lives. Trump appeared at Paradise in a black windbreaker that said "USA" and a black cap.

The President said, "Right now we want to take care of the people who have been so badly hurt. This is very sad to see. As far as the lives are concerned, nobody knows quite yet." Trump's take on the wildfires has been controversial after he blamed the out-of-control wildfires on poor forest management. He even threatened to withhold federal funds if they were not being used to properly manage forests.

He quoted comments from the president of Finland on how they deal with forest fires saying, "Other countries do it differently, it's a whole different story." Trump insisted that Finland engages in "raking and cleaning things and they don't have any problem." The President was accompanied by California Gov. Jerry Brown and Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom as he said the state and federal governments would "get this cleaned up" and "take care of the floors of the forest."

Trump continued, "I think hopefully this will be the last of these, this was a really, really bad one." When a reporter asked him if the fires had changed his mind on climate change the President replied, "No, no." He added, "What needs to be done is being done. It is just a big, massive cleanup after a terrible tragedy."

Air Force One was forced to fly through the smoke-filled skies to land at Beale Air Force Base Saturday. Trump's motorcade even pulled in a mobile home and RV park and stopped in front of an American flag hanging from the remains of a burned building.

Trump's visit and the promise of federal support isn't the only positive thing to come out of the wildfire devastation Saturday. A dog was discovered protecting the last house standing in the town of Paradise where every other home was leveled by the fire. The dog's owners had likely evacuated, but the poor little pooch with burned paws found the last structure standing and waited to be eventually rescued.

Living in a high fire area means getting burned out when the fuels are abundant and wind conditions are right. There is a reason these areas were undeveloped. Our forebears didnt expect EMS to bail out there chestnuts at any inconvenience. Bloody fools

To the retards who live in areas in disaster prone areas with Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Tornadoes, and Wildfires. Fucking prepare and build your home to be sturdy.

So Brown is willing to shut up and cuddle up to get Millions. I hope the $$$$$$$$ comes with strings attached like mandated Forest undergrowth clearing and LESS blindly followed Eco Green huggies and more established Forest Management Practices .
