“You don’t have to have any forest fires. It’s interesting. I spoke to certain countries, and they said, ‘Sir, we’re a forest nation.’ I never thought of a country — well-known countries; ‘we’re a forest nation.’ I never heard of the term ‘forest nation.’ They live in forests. And they don’t have problems. Remember, management.
“It’s called forest management. So it’s a very important term. When I went to California, they sort of scoffed at me for the first two weeks and maybe three weeks and not so much four weeks, and after about five weeks they said, ‘You know he’s right. He’s right.'” – Trump, at yesterday’s speech on the environment.
Trump’s rant during his big environmental speech about how “cleaning” forests is the solution to wildfires and about how nobody had heard of “forest management” before he started talking about it is like an Idiocracy outtake pic.twitter.com/zE9FUMucmh
