By the way, remember when trump refused to .....

By the way, remember when trump refused to declare an emergency during the California wildfire episode a couple of years ago. Dragged his feet, demanded that Newson beg when all those people died, 11,000homes destroyed?

  You didn't see that nonsense with Biden and Texas did you?  Abbott asked and Biden said, "sure thing", no jerking his chain, no hassling anyone.

Re: By the way, remember when trump refused to .....

VACAVILLE (CBS SF) — Gov. Gavin Newsom toured miles of charred hills and burned out homes Saturday, getting a first-hand look at the devastation left behind by wildfires that have burned nearly 700,000 acres in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Along the way, Newsom thanked President Donald Trump for his partnership and for granting the state’s request for a major disaster declaration.

Trump antagonist Newsom lavishes praise on president for fire response

AMERICAN CANYON — Gov. Gavin Newsom, who rarely misses an opportunity to criticize President Donald Trump, offered rare praise Wednesday for the president during a tour of areas affected by catastrophic fires and widespread power outages in Northern California.

Newsom said Trump has been “a partner’’ and that his administration has been “extraordinary” in its response to a state in crisis. His office announced earlier Wednesday that California had been awarded a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which will enable local, state and tribal agencies to apply for 75 percent reimbursement of their costs in responding to the Easy Fire in Ventura County.

California previously received the same federal grant for the massive Kincade Fire in Northern California and the Getty and Tick fires in Southern California.

“His team is performing above and beyond expectation,’’ Newsom said of Trump, following a visit to meet with the senior residents of Las Casitas Mobile Home Park in American Canyon, which has been without power since Saturday. “Every single request we’ve had to the Administration has been met.’’

Asked by POLITICO if he has heard from Trump during the firestorms, Newsom said he “reached out formally yesterday ... because I haven’t talked to the president” on California’s statewide emergency to date. But, he acknowledged, “I have not heard back.”
