Trump's rake news

Trump leaves Finland bewildered by claiming country stops wildfires by 'raking and cleaning'
Finnish president says he cannot remember subject coming up in conversation with US counterpart

Donald Trump has blamed a lack of raking and care of forest floors for the wildfires that devastated parts of California, causing confusion and amusement in Finland.

In his latest criticism of what he claimed was poor forest management, Mr Trump said he had spoken to the Finnish president, Sauli Niinisto, about the fires – the worst ever to hit the golden state.

“I was with the president of Finland and he said … we’re a forest nation, he called it a forest nation, and they spend a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things. They don’t have any problem, and what it is, it’s a very small problem,” Mr Trump said on Saturday during a visit to Paradise, a Californian town totally destroyed by flames.

“We’ve got to take care of the floors, you know the floors of the forest, very important. You look at other countries where they do it differently and it’s a whole different story.”
