Firefighters Slam Trump For ‘Shameful Attack’ On California, 23 People Dead

Firefighters associations slammed President Donald Trump for attacking California during the Camp and Woolsey fires — which have taken 23 lives — on Twitter on Nov. 10:

Harold Schaitberger, president of the International Association of Fire Fighters, fired back, reports CNN:

His comments are reckless and insulting to the firefighters and people being affected.

Brian K. Rice, president of the California Professional Firefighters, also slammed Trump:

The president’s message attacking California and threatening to withhold aid to the victims of the cataclysmic fires is ill-informed, ill-timed and demeaning to those who are suffering as well as the men and women on the front lines.

In my view, this shameful attack on California is an attack on all our courageous men and women on the front lines.

Wildfires are sparked and spread not only in forested areas but in populated areas and open fields fueled by parched vegetation, high winds, low humidity and geography.
