Biden over the weekend hit Mr. Trump’s response to the wildfires, saying in a statement on Saturday that “the science is clear and deadly signs like these are unmistakable — climate change poses an imminent, existential threat to our way of life.”

“Left unchecked, wildfires and other extreme weather disasters will only continue to grow in frequency and intensity, endangering the lives of tens of millions of Americans, ravaging our lands and waterways, rendering the air unbreathable, and laying waste to our economic security,” Biden’s statement continued. “In the years ahead, there will be no challenge more consequential to our future than meeting and defeating the onrushing climate crisis.”
