In Rare Move, Trump Administration Rejects California’s Request for Wildfire Relief

The Trump administration has rejected California’s request for disaster relief aid for six major wildfires that scorched more than 1.8 million acres in land, destroyed thousands of structures and caused at least three deaths last month.

The rejection of aid late Thursday, a rare move in cases of disasters on the scale of California’s fires, escalated a long-running feud between the Trump administration and California on the issues of climate change and forest management.

California has suffered a series of record-breaking fires since August, when freak lightning storms ignited hundreds of fires. Subsequent fires in September tore through parts of the Sierra Nevada and wine country north of San Francisco.

Judd Deere, a White House spokesman, said President Trump had already come to the state’s assistance when his administration authorized increased funding for debris removal from the fires as well as relief for the August fires.

I wonder how this affects Californian Republicans or Independents that might be undecided or veering away from Trump.

He only cares about red states

Remember when Obama denied hurricane funds to red states? Oh wait, he didn’t.

(I’m paraphrasing one of the posted comments, an excellent point).

He's trash.

I remember clearly when the GOP, led by Sen Cruz tried to block aid to NY and NJ after Hurricane Sandy. But when the South has hurricane damage, Cruz was the first to ask for aid

Trump reversed himself on this just recently. I guess his aides told him how utterly shitty it looked.

Where's Pence's fly pal when you need him?

To be fair, he did offer to send them one roll of paper towels for every acre that was affected. Not a name brand paper towel, but still.

It's hateful, destructive and threatens the well-being of millions of people he was elected to represent.

So hardly a "rare" move.

[R10] No, that was just a used toilet paper square that fall off his shoe. (some humor to cope)

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
