President Donald Trump’s arrival in Northern California to tour the devastation from the deadliest U.S. wildfire in a century has drawn mixed reactions from residents.
Flag-waving supporters gathered on a corner Saturday in the city of Chico to greet Trump’s motorcade as he headed to the town of Paradise that was leveled by the fire last week.
At least 71 people have died.
At an encampment of people displaced by the fire next to a Walmart in Chico, no one appeared to be paying close attention to Trump’s visit.
Evacuees say they were told they had to leave by Sunday, and many were packing their belongings.
Maggie Missere-Crowder says if Trump came to the Walmart, she’d shake his hand, but she otherwise needed to focus on getting her tent and other supplies into her truck.
