Trump says other countries do better job of 'cleaning the floors' of the forest

So, Trump said all we have to do to help prevent fires like we are seeing in California is to clean the forest "floor".
I guess he means the ground around trees in our forests.

How many people would we need to hire to do this annually, as leaves, etc accumulate all the time?

"In 2012, forest land comprised 766 million acres, or 33 percent of the total land area of the United States."

1. Maybe the troops guarding the border could be given rakes and vacuum cleaners

and then go clean up all those forests.

6. The fires are not in forests with trees.

 

They are brush fires that move into cities.

10. The fires are not spreading because of the forest floors.

They are jumping from treetop to treetop because the forests are so parched from lack of rain and from high winds. He is such an idiot!
