PARADISE, Calif. (WBZ-AM) — President Donald Trump is in California Saturday to see firsthand the devastation from the wildfires that affected the area, as well as meeting with individuals that were impacted and displaced.
“It’s a big issue, a very expensive issue, but very very inexpensive when you compare it to even one of these horrible fires,” Trump said.
At least 74 people are dead from the fires, with 71 alone in Northern California and 3 in Ventura County. Those numbers are expected to rise.
More than 1,000 people are still unaccounted for in fire zones. A missing persons list is located on the Butte County Sheriff Department’s website.
President Trump is also expected to stop in Southern California where a gunman killed a dozen people at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks.
