Trump Just Called Fire-Ravaged Town 'Pleasure' Instead Of Paradise By Accident

"I was with the President of Finland, and he said: "We're a forest nation" and they spent a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things, and they don't have any problem".

Donald Trump twice referred to the fire-ravaged California town of Paradise as "Pleasure" during a weekend visit to survey the damage.

Even before those comments, Trump received a slew of criticism for a tone-deaf response to a state hurting badly from the human and economic impact of its most deadly wildfire in history, and where nearly 1300 people are listed as missing. "I mean they're suing him", he said.

Strong winds have complicated their efforts but they hope 10 centimetres of rain forecast for midweek will slow the spread.

Honea said among the dead was Lolene Rios, 56, whose son Jed tearfully told KXTV in Sacramento that his mother "had endless amount of love for me".

The US President visited California on Sunday to speak to those affected by the horrific fires.

The Butte County Sheriff's Office said the list of the missing is compiled using information received from a special hotline, as well as emails and emergency-911 calls that came in during the first chaotic hours of the blaze.

The Northern California town was obliterated by the Camp fire, killing at least 77 and destroying 10,000 homes. "All of that is combining to create the tragic situation that we saw today in both Northern California and here in Southern California".

Officials say drivers should be cautious in the rain, which is already expected to cause traffic delays going into the Thanksgiving holiday. "It's like total devastation", Mr Trump said as he stood amid the ruins of Paradise and pledged the full support of the federal government. You know the floors of the forest, very important.

The president initially blamed state officials for poor forest management in exacerbating the fires and threatened to cut off federal funding. "It's back and forth between the state and the feds". However, they do not rake their forests to prevent wildfires, according to The New York Times.

Finland has a notably different climate from dry California, being more than 20 degrees further to the north than the region hit by the Camp Fire.

The fire was 65 per cent contained Sunday.

"Hopefully this is going to be the last of these because this was a really, really bad one", Trump said of the fire.

Firefighters are making progress against the blaze that broke out November 8 and tore through communities west of Los Angeles from Thousand Oaks to Malibu.
