Finland's president rakes memory for source of Trump wildfire remark

Police near the aftermath of the Camp Fire this weekend

Officials battling the largest wildfire in California history say the rain forecast to arrive this week may complicate search and recovery efforts. He recalled telling Trump that Finland takes care of its forests, but added that raking didn't come up.

"I was with the president of Finland and he said, 'We're a forest nation.' He called it a forest nation".

"What we just saw, we just left Pleasure", Trump said again, before several others standing alongside him corrected him, loudly saying "Paradise".

Finns woke up to find their country was trending on social media and the comment has inspired them to demonstrate their forest "raking and cleaning" abilities on Twitter.

"I think that California's been really disgusting to him".

Goldberg patiently explained that raking isn't going to help and noted that the president of Finland said he never actually talked to Trump about raking.

Finnish President Sauli Niinisto said yesterday in a newspaper that he spoke briefly with Mr Trump about forest management on 11 November when they both were in Paris for Armistice Day events.

Trump initially blamed state officials for poor forest management in exacerbating the fires and threatened to cut off federal funding.

Trump's ideas about how to prevent forest fires have also prompted some puzzled reactions.

The Butte County disaster coincided with a flurry of smaller blazes in southern California, including the Woolsey Fire.

Authorities on Sunday sifted through the charred wreckage of California's deadliest ever wildfire, searching for any signs of the 993 people now listed as missing after the Camp Fire tore through the mountain town of Paradise.

Thousands of firefighters are working to bring the fire under control and full containment is expected by the end of the month.

Asked whether the scenes of devastation had changed his view on climate change, Mr Trump said: "No".

PG&E Corp has said it could face liability that exceeds its insurance coverage if its equipment were found to have caused the Camp Fire.

California, the largest and wealthiest U.S. state, is regularly plagued by wildfires, but the Camp Fire has been unprecedented.

"If you're gonna live this close to the forest, if the climate is gonna keep changing, you're gonna have to build some kind of underground shelters so that you can go in and protect yourself, not by going three or four miles, but by going, you know, going 30 or 40 feet", Brown said.

However, heavy rains could also cause risky mudslides in the burn areas, putting firefighters at risk as they work on rugged, mountainous terrain and displacing evacuees camped out in lowland parking lots or other makeshift shelters at risk of flooding.
