Trump is expected to visit McClellan Park in Sacramento County to be briefed on the wildfires that have scorched areas up and down the state.

Deputy Press Secretary Judd Deere said in a statement obtained by KABC, "Since mid-August, President Trump and Governor Newsom have spoken by phone and the White House and FEMA have remained in constant contact with State and local officials throughout the response to these natural disasters. The President continues to support those who are battling raging wildfires in a locally-executed, state-managed, and federally-supported emergency response."
