President Donald Trump received a transatlantic smackdown after bizarre statements he made while touring the devastation of the Camp Fire in Paradise, California.


“We gotta take care of the floors, you know, the floors of the forest,” Trump claimed.

“You look at other countries where they do it differently and it’s a whole different story,” he continued. “I was with the president of Finland and he said: ‘We have a much different — we’re a forest nation.’ He called it a forest nation, and they spent a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things. And they don’t have any problem.”

President Sauli Niinistö of Finland denied the conversation.

“I mentioned [to] him that Finland is a land covered by forests and we also have a good monitoring system and network,” Niinistö said.

Meanwhile, Finns used social media to mock Trump's claim.
