Trump Gets Shredded To Pieces For Threatening To Pull Federal Funding For California Wildfire
Donald Trump woke up in Paris on Saturday in the mood to make threats toward California as it deals with deadly wildfires across the state.
Instead of offering condolences for the lost lives, the president fired off an angry tweet threatening to pull federal funding for the state.
“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!” Trump tweeted.
The comments were Trump’s first about massive wildfires, including a blaze that incinerated most of the Northern California town of Paradise and killed at least nine people.
Wildfires also raged in Southern California, including the town of Thousand Oaks, where a gunman days earlier killed a dozen people at a local bar.
Twitter users were not amused by Trump’s threat and immediately set him straight:
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!

Fire started at Santa Susana Field Labratory- an old abandoned nuclear testing site – there is literally NO FOREST there. You need to@address the radioactive materials in the smoke in the air and in the ash falling on crops and in water. Thanks #radiation #nuclear #woolseyfire

No, ASSHOLE, there is no reason for your ignorance. Your management of this country is so poor. People are losing their homes and dying and this is how you respond. I’ve never wished for the demise of someone as much as I do yours you deplorable bastard.

I assume then you believe the only reason Houston flooded was because Texas mismanaged the ocean?

Attacking the victims of a tragedy is exactly what we would expect from you. I’m sure the families of those who have burned to death and those who have lost everything wi remember this come election time. You could help by addressing climate change but refuse

California should stop sending transfer payments to the Federal Government until the Trump administration is over. Let the red states declare bankruptcy.

NINE PEOPLE DIED
God you really are a sociopath with the compassion of a cockroach.
But then again look how disrespectful you were to the 2,975 AMERICANS who died as a result of Hurricane Maria.
Also go f*ck yourselfhttps://t.co/nQA0TRoEBR

Dictators lack sympathy & empathy for the victims of disasters like fires, floods and hurricanes. Instead, they always blame scientists & government agencies for the event. I doubt those who died in this fire or their family members care about your threat to end federal payments.

Damnit, you did it again. Every time I think "That is the stupidest thing anyone has ever said in the history of the human race!" You open your stupid mouth and top your last statement. Congratulations I guess…#WorstPresidentEver #Nationalembarassment #Internationaldisgrace

Since your President can't say it I will!! Condences out to the families and loved ones of the people who have died in the fires. Prayers that the fires are contained soon!!

Stop spinning lies and blaming the wrong people!!! It's not mismanagement, it's the fact that the areas affected have received a fraction of the rainfall normally expected which is due to CLIMATE CHANGE #campfire #CaliforniaFires #WoolseyFire #HillFire

Now this moron is going to cut funding to assist in forest fires in California? He miraculously has assessed that money mismanaged. Even if this is the case, is he saying if there is a massive fire – FUNDING CUT – SO NO HELP?
And if he isn't saying this – what is he saying? pic.twitter.com/UmCu7h4ROd

#MrCovfefe there is no reason for the massively expensive trips you take to your own golf courses. Perhaps we should consider cutting off your source of taxpayer dollars to do so.
