“You’ve got to take care of the floors. You know the floors of the forest, very important,” Trump said Saturday during a tour of the destruction left in the wake of the Camp fire.
The president then recounted an alleged conversation with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö in which he was told about the benefits of raking.
“And they don’t have a problem,” Trump said. “And when they do, it’s a very small problem.”
We don’t rake our forests in Finland. As we have free education up to university level, we are smarter than that. We try to achieve the goals set in the Paris Agreement.

We indeed have the best rakes in the world. They are really great. No other country has as good rakes as we do. We rake Finland great again.

Pretty much, here’s a video of my son beginning to practise at 22 months old, helping my grandma out picking up the leaves!
Small hands, very great. The rake was a bit too big for him. Next year, he’ll be a GREAT at raking. pic.twitter.com/KkcuIWFB7t
