Trump visiting California after wildfires claim further lives

The California Fires Have Scorched So Much Earth It’s Visible From Space

President Donald Trump headed to California on Saturday to see firsthand the grief and devastation from the deadliest USA wildfire in a century, as confusion continued over how many people remain unaccounted for. "That's happening as we speak", Trump said, but offered no details.

President Donald Trump arrived in northern California on Saturday to see first-hand the grief and devastation from the deadliest USA wildfire in a century amid confusion over how many people remain unaccounted for.

"I was watching the firemen the other day and they were raking areas, they were raking areas where the fire was right over there", the president complained in a clip.

With more than 12,000 buildings destroyed in the Camp Fire and evacuation orders still in place across swathes of California, thousands of residents are now spread out in temporary accommodation or shelters.

The fire has devoured an area roughly the size of Chicago, destroying almost 10,000 homes and 2,400 other buildings. "And I think you're going to see something very spectacular in the next couple of years".

The roster probably includes some who fled the blaze and do not realize they have been reported missing, he said.

A reporter asked if climate change was discussed with the president, but Trump jumped in to say, "We didn't discuss it". Governor Jerry Brown and governor-elect Gavin Newsom welcomed Trump's visit, declaring it was time "to pull together for the people of California".

Along the route are some bystanders who are holding Trump signs.

WWE is in Los Angeles California for NXT TakeOver: War Games, as well as the 2018 WWE Survivor Series.

However, Twitter was ablaze with comments about how odd it is that Trump and Newsom were together considering that Donald Trump Jr is now dating Newsom's ex-wife Kimberly Guilfoyle.

Even as he attempted to strike a more conciliatory tone in the wake of a series of tweets in which he blamed California's forest management for the fires, the touring party did strike an oddly partisan note: the three politicians in Trump's party were all Republicans.

But they both said they agreed that poor management of the forests was part of the problem and that the federal government would step up to help the state.

Along with SpaceX's proposal, the FCC granted permission to three other companies - Telesat , LeoSat, and Kepler Communications. With so many satellites in orbit at once, the constellation will be able to transmit signal to every part of the planet at once.

Trump has come under fire for blaming the fires on mismanagement of forests.

Roslyn Roberts, 73, who was forced from her home in Paradise, said she voted for Trump but disagrees with him.

Mic McCrary, who lives with Weldon in the house that survived the fire, blared what he called "the most American songs I could think of" during Trump's visit. Newsum's home wasn't destroyed, but it might be months before she can live there again.

In Chico, just west of Paradise, volunteers had erected a tented encampment for evacuees.

"My husband and I are not missing and never were!" she wrote Thursday night on one of the pages for missing people.

Smoke from the fire forced schools to close in San Francisco on Friday and the city's iconic cable cars had to suspend service.

But once rain arrives, it could help dissipate the thick smog hanging in the air, that's caused many Californians to take to wearing face masks when they venture outside.

Much of the rescue work is now focused on Paradise, where many retirees were unable to get out in time.

Search teams with cadaver dogs have combed through rubble-strewn expanses of burned-out neighborhoods looking for bodies. Minnesota's Cloquet Fire in October of 1918 killed 450 people. It is 55 percent contained.
