White House has announced that US President Donald Trump will visit victims of the California fire that claimed over 228 lives and destroyed over 7,200 structures.

The fire which was the worst in history saw President Donald Trump blame poor forest management as the cause of the tragedy.

His comments were not received well especially by California Governor Gavin Newsom who said that lives have been lost and properties destroyed, it’s should not be a time for partisanship as many are fleeing their homes.

The Governor instead called for coordination in providing relief food, fast response and lifting lives of the affected.
