Katy Perry blasts Donald Trump for ‘heartless response’ to California fires

Katy Perry has blasted US President Donald Trump's response to the California wildfires as "absolutely heartless" after he said they were the result of poor forest management.

"There aren't even politics involved", she added. "Just good American families losing their homes as you tweet, evacuating into shelters", Katy responded.

'Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. While you were trying to chill on Saturday, the commander-in-chief began his day by addressing the fires consuming parts of California, which have so far killed nine people and forced a quarter of a million people from their homes. "Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!"

Those fires, which remain at zero percent contained as of Saturday morning, descended on the town of Thousand Oaks from both sides, threatening the community still reeling from a mass shooting that left a dozen dead at a local bar Wednesday night.

Trump earlier issued an emergency declaration providing federal funds to help firefighters in Butte, Ventura and Los Angeles counties.
