Trump Threatens to Cut Off Disaster Funding for California Wildfires

January 10, 2019 / Sarah D. Wire

President Trump injected new uncertainty into California's wildfire recovery efforts, tweeting early Wednesday that he has ordered the Federal Emergency Management Agency not to send more disaster funding to state officials "unless they get their act together, which is unlikely." Neither the White House nor FEMA provided clarification, in response to emails and calls, about whether Trump's threat was bluster like other tweets he has sent making false assertions while criticizing the state's fire management, or if he has actually ordered a funding cutoff to thousands of Californians trying to rebuild after the devastating fires late last year.
