Camp Fire: Trump says he's told FEMA to halt relief money

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom elected governor of California

I have ordered FEMA to send no more money. It is a disgraceful situation in lives & money!' Trump added.

President Trump sent a tweet Wednesday morning announcing that he has ordered the Federal Emergency Management Agency not to send funding to California to assist in the aftermath of deadly wildfires.

"Our climate is changing - we have to change with it".

The Federal Emergency Management Agency falls under the auspices of the Department of Homeland Security, which has been left unfunded by the ongoing partial government shutdown.

Trump's tweet came a day after Newsom and Govs. Trump contended Monday that water could be used for "fires, farming and everything else".

The president long has criticized California state officials, sometimes with dubious claims, over wildfires there and their steps to prevent and nix them.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment on what specific actions Trump has taken, how they were legally justified and what if anything would be done to help people who are depending on FEMA for food or shelter in the wake of the wildfires.

After his November tirade aimed at California, Trump quickly relented and signed the requisite disaster declarations allowing FEMA and other federal agencies to deal with the wildfires and their aftermath. Jerry Brown's administration has been sending water from "the North" into the Pacific Ocean.

"The president not only has signed a presidential declaration giving California substantial funding, but he said and pledged very specifically to continue to help us - that he's got our back", Brown told CBS' "Face the Nation" on November 18.

Newsom noted that California has pledged $1 billion over the next five years to ramp up its efforts, which include clearing dead trees that can serve as fuel.

Trump's tweet ignores the fact that almost 60 percent of California's forests are on land owned by the federal government, mainly the National Forest Service and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

This isn't the first time the US President has lashed out at California for its handling of the destructive wildfires.

California has suffered a series of increasingly massive, deadly blazes in the past two years that have destroyed homes and businesses and put burnt areas at a greater risk of mudslides.
