Trump Starts Internet Craze in Finland With Raking Comments

Mr Trump cited the Finnish president as telling him Finns "spend a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things (in the forest), and they don't have any problem".

President Donald Trump visited Northern California on November 17 to observe the damage caused by historic wildfires that have swept the region.

"You don't see whats going on until you come here", Trump says.

Deputies have located hundreds of people to date, but the overall number keeps growing because officials are adding names, including those reported as missing during the disaster's chaotic early hours, Honea said.

Strong winds have complicated their efforts but they hope 10 centimetres of rain forecast for midweek will slow the spread.

Asked whether the job was tough, the 50-year-old volunteer said: "I just think about the positives, bringing relief to the families, closure".

In Paradise, home to almost 27,000 people before the Camp Fire struck, two forensic anthropologists for the University of Nevada, Reno, were helping firefighters on Saturday sort through the wreckage at a mobile home park for senior citizens.

Having previously criticized authorities in California for improper forest management, irking survivors and first responders alike, Trump has now made another one of his infamous, off-hand remarks regarding a Nordic country (see: #LastNightInSweden); this time he opted for Finland. Pope Francis has prayed for victims of California's wildfires and freezing weather on the US East Coast. The fire covered 148,000 acres, fire officials said.

Northern California's Camp Fire has destroyed about 10,500 homes and torched 233 square miles (603 square kilometres).

"I think that California's been really terrible to him and the fights. Hopefully this is going to be the last of these because this was a really, really bad one", Trump said as he walked among the rubble where the Skyway Villa Mobile Home and RV Park in Paradise once stood. "It's back and forth between the state and the feds".

More than a week later, firefighters have managed to carve containment lines around 55 percent of the blaze's perimeter.

During a visit to both fire zones on Saturday, U.S. President Donald Trump blamed the recent spate of wildfires on forest mismanagement, and he said he discussed the issue with California Governor Jerry Brown and Governor-elect Gavin Newsom.

He also visited Southern California, where firefighters were making progress on a wildfire that tore through communities west of Los Angeles from Thousand Oaks to Malibu, killing three people.
