Paris accord: While firefighters were battling California's wildfires, climate activists, led by students, marched in Los Angeles on Friday. On Monday, President Donald Trump can begin to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement, as he has promised. The withdrawal process takes a year and doesn't become official until the day after the 2020 presidential election. It was negotiated in 2015 and took effect on Nov. 4, 2016.

President Donald Trump on Sunday criticized California's Democratic governor for his handling of wildfires and made a vague threat to cut aid as blazes continue to burn in the northern and southern parts of the state. The comments are the latest installment of Trump's long-standing grievance with California, a state that has clashed with his administration, particularly on issues of environmental regulation.

In Trump's first significant mention of California's wildfires on Twitter since the massive Kincade Fire broke out in late October, the president accused Gov. Gavin Newsom of doing a "terrible" job of forest management.
