President Trump visited the devastated town of Paradise, Calif. on Saturday to view the wildfire aftermath that has left at least 71 dead and 1,000 missing.
Details: In his comments to assembled reporters, Trump said, "Hopefully, this will be the last of these, because it was a really, really bad one. People have to see this to really understand it." Trump also said that viewing the fire damage hadn't changed his opinion on climate change, though a changing climate and population growth are combining to increase wildfire risk both in California and more broadly across the American West.
