On Friday, President Donald Trump attacked California politicians for complaining about wildfires.

Trump visited Calexico, California to address issues regarding the border wall and immigration. While there he raged about wildfires, even though just under a year ago nearly 75 people died from one of the deadliest wildfires the state has experienced.

“California’s always the first one to complain. And I don’t mean the people of California. They’re fantastic. I’m talking about the politicians in California," Trump said according to CNN.

"They complain. When their forests go up, they complain. They gotta take care of their forests a lot better. But when the wall—they want the wall in San Diego and they’re always the first one. They were the first one to pull the National Guard. And they need the National Guard,” he said.

"California was one of 16 states that filed a lawsuit challenging Trump's national emergency declaration. In February, the group of states, led by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, filed the lawsuit in the US District Court for the Northern District of California," reported CNN.
