Katy Perry has slammed Donald Trump for his comments about the California wildfires that have ravaged the state.

‘This is an absolutely heartless response,’ she said in the Saturday tweet. ‘There aren’t even politics involved. Just good American families losing their homes as you tweet, evacuating into shelters.’ 

In a 2am tweet, Trump threatened to withhold federal payments to California over ‘gross mismanagement’ of its forests as the state is ravaged by three massive wildfires.

He wrote: ‘There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. 

‘Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!’ 

On Friday evening Trump issued an emergency declaration providing federal funds to help the thousands of firefighters struggling to contain the flames that have already torched more than 200 square miles across the state.

The blaze has incinerated most of the Northern California town of Paradise and killed at least nine people.

The Camp Fire in Butte County north of Sacramento was only five percent contained as of 1.30am local time Saturday. 

In Southern California, the Hill and Woolsey fires have already scorched more than 40,000 acres, forcing more than 250,000 residents near Ventura and Los Angeles counties to evacuate.

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.
