BREAKING: Trump has JUST CUT Federal Aid to CALIFORNIA
In an unprecedented move, President Trump has announced that he has ordered FEMA to stop sending money to California for emergency aide.
As reported by usatoday.com
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that he is cutting off federal money to fight California wildfires, claiming the money is being wasted.
“Billions of dollars are sent to the State of California for Forrest fires that, with proper Forest Management, would never happen,” Trump tweeted. “Unless they get their act together, which is unlikely, I have ordered FEMA to send no more money. It is a disgraceful situation in lives & money!”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., replied, saying Trump’s “threat insults the memory of scores of Americans who perished in wildfires last year & thousands more who lost their homes.”
Pelosi said House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy, another Californian, “must join me to condemn & call on POTUS to reassure millions in CA that our govt will be there for them in their time of need.”
