Trump announces he wants a 'great climate' after seeing California devastated by wildfires
California’s worst fire in recorded history currently has a death toll of 76 people. This doesn’t include the over 1,200 people who are still reported as missing. President Donald Trump went to both Northern and Southern California this weekend, and visited Paradise, Malibu, and Thousand Oaks, among other areas.
In Paradise, alongside Democratic Governor Jerry Brown and Governor-elect Gavin Newsom, Trump seemed to comprehend the level of devastation in front of him. He even spoke graciously about the land and fire management, unlike his earlier tweet:
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!

Surprising no one, however, he had a mindboggling response to a reasonable question about climate change.
