TOUGH LOVE: Trump Threatens to Cut California Wildfire Funds.

In a Sunday morning tweet, Mr. Trump alleged that California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, wasn’t doing enough to stop the fires, accusing him of doing a “terrible job of forest management.”

“Every year, as the fire’s rage & California burns, it is the same thing – and then he comes to the Federal Government for $$$ help. No more. Get your act together Governor,” the president wrote.

Mr. Trump again called on Mr. Newsom to “clean” the state’s forest floors to help prevent the spread of fires, an argument he has been making publicly for months.

Why should the rest of the country continue paying for California’s bad decisions on forest management and urban development?
