…President Donald Trump approved California’s request for a presidential disaster declaration to help combat the state’s record-setting wildfires, California Gov. Gavin Newsom said Friday, a day after the administration initially rejected the request.
Donald Trump has had it for the states Democratic Governor Newsom for not being ‘nice to him’ for a while….
He has also knocked the state for NOT controlling nature on the fires….
The admin has given the state federal aid in the past….
But with the virus slashing the states revenue?
The Governor of the state is trying to get as much help from the Federal Government as he can to put things back together and pay those bills….
But the Trump administration this week refused to grant an emergency declaration that would open up hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding for areas devastated in those fires, California state officials confirmed to The Washington Post early Friday.
It’s unclear why the request was denied, when similar declarations were granted earlier this year for other wildfires. President Trump has previously threatened to withhold emergency fire aid to California over disputed claims that the state isn’t doing enough to prevent wildfires.
