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.
President Donald trump who was celebrating the Diwali festival, later on praised the firefighters team for their great work in dealing with the California wildfire. He continued by saying that the nation appreciates their heroism, courage and genius.
“Was just briefed by FEMA Brock and Secretary Zinke, who are in California. Thank you to the great Firefighters, First Responders and FEMA for the incredible job they are doing w/ the California Wildfires. Our Nation appreciates your heroism, courage & genius. God Bless you all!” said Donald trump on Twitter.
