As @realDonaldTrump prepares to land in California to talk wildfires, here’s a quick refresher:

2. Talking about forest management: The US Forest Service’s budget has remained fairly stagnant for the past decade. More and more of the Dept’s budget has gone into firefighting, which means less and less is going into prevention, vegetation management and dead and dying...
... tree removal. AKA “raking the forests” 🙄
