“We’ve got to take care of the floors. The floors of the forest,” Trump said in Paradise, CA.
Other countries do it differently—president of Finland said they spend a lot of time “on raking and cleaning. They don’t have any problem and when it is, it’s a very small problem.” pic.twitter.com/WZQd9YhxUZ

When @realDonaldTrump thinks Finns rake forest – Sorry. That's #RakeNews. According to a Yale Uni study, there are an estimated 22 billion trees in #Finland or 4500 trees per person. Nobody rakes them. https://t.co/Vf0iS6eTx4

Just finished a whole day raking in the forest. Hopefully, that will prevent a fire. #Raking #haravointi #RakingAmericaGreatAgain pic.twitter.com/Kx22DU818G

After you’re done laughing out loud, please consider (if you can) helping the displaced people in California who lost loved ones and homes in the wildfires. Below are links to a few groups. Thank you!
Want to help California fire victims?
🚫 DON’T: Randomly donate your stuff — it can be a hassle to transport, store and distribute. A lot goes to waste.
✅ DO: Donate money to the organizations on the ground who know what’s needed. Here are some groups: https://t.co/cw7EVeHUqv
