He should send them to help fight the fires and we would be getting our money's worth. The problem is that Trump hates California.

Hands down the worst president in history!!!

How many retired C-130's that are still quite functional that can be retrofitted to fight major fires do we have just sitting and rusting away as America senselessly goes up in flames?

That makes about as much sense as calling the police and the government sending firemen to you. The military are trained to confront aggressors. They are not trained to control forest fires.

When you have an electrical problem at your house, do you call a plumber?

Exactly, we have Americans dying in a national disaster and what does our con artist in chief do about it? He threatens to take away federal funding and allocates resources to a complete non issue because he has encouraged hate rather than compassion.

Again hands down the worst president in American history!!!

Still cheaper than the 500 million Obama pissed away on Solyndra

But I agree there are better ways to deal with the trespassing immigrants

What a dungpile curcus. i can tell you what they are doing.....busywork...make believe effort that will yield NOTHING. They weren't sent there for a National Security or even Border Security rational. They were sent there so Trump could try to scare Americans into voting Republican. That is it and that was all of it.

Actually, I am happy. The MAIN job of the Federal Government is to secure our borders. That is where the money is supposed to be going far more than most other programs.

What you have to understand, when Trump speaks all the news channels broadcast it. Sure , Trump brought it up at election time but the truth is the caravan is still moving. Go ahead, put on fox news if you don't believe me.
