Trump threatens to cut off FEMA funds for California fire relief

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) - President Trump is threatening to cut off FEMA funds for California due to what he's calling a problem with the state's wildfire preparedness. 

“Billions of dollars are sent to the State of California for Forrest fires that, with proper Forrest Management, would never happen,” the president 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!" he tweeted Wednesday.
