California has an ongoing problem with wildfires. Last year, Trump suggested that California should do more to clear dead brush from their forests.
Liberals mocked him at the time, as if it was an outrageous and unrealistic plan.
Now California is doing it. Once again, Trump was right.
The Blaze reports:
Trump vindicated? California to spend billions to clear out forests, remove wildfire fuel
California officials plan to spend billions of dollars to thin tens of millions of acres of forests in the Golden State, in hopes that doing so will restrict fuel for forest fires, especially during the state’s hot and dry summers.
After the plan was revealed, it was pointed out that former President Donald Trump made that exact suggestion during his presidency. Trump, however, was met with ridicule by progressives bent on making forest fires a symptom of climate change.
After wildfires ravaged California last summer — killing 33 people and burning a record 4.3 million acres — Trump issued an ultimatum to California’s Democratic leaders: Clean your forest floors or lose federal money. Trump made similar threats in 2018 and 2019.
The media worked overtime to spin the suggestion — which, in reality, is a common forest conservation measure — as prompting “head-scratching from experts” and as evidence Trump did not “understand the science of wildfires” and was “politicizing natural disasters.”…
California officials now say they’re going to do exactly what Trump had suggested: clear the forests of debris that intensifies fires.
Here’s late night host James Corden mocking Trump over this.
“Now, California is putting Trump's plan into practice statewide as groups of 12-person crews set about a $500 million effort to thin the state's forests with controlled burns and sweeping the forest floors of pines, redwoods and firs…” https://t.co/xHCocBVJhe pic.twitter.com/i7T5LbbAcB

Where does Trump go for his apology?
