President Trump on Wednesday announced over Twitter that he has ordered the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to top sending money to California “unless they get their act together, which is unlikely.”

“Billions of dollars are sent to the State of California for Forrest fires that, with proper Forrest Management, would never happen,” Trump tweeted just one day after California Governor Gavin Newsom was sworn in, adding “It is a disgraceful situation in lives & money!”

Billions of dollars are sent to the State of California for Forrest fires that, with proper Forrest Management, would never happen. 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!

In November, Trump threatened to cut wildfire funding as California burned from two out-of-control blazes, tweeting “There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!”

The next day, Trump tweeted: “With proper Forest Management, we can stop the devastation constantly going on in California. Get Smart!”

Meanwhile, rumors have been swirling over a possible bankruptcy by California’s largest electric utility, Pacific Gas & Electric company (PG&E), which just had its debt downgraded to junk by S&P.
