The president is scheduled to deliver remarks to the California National Guard, but first he will meet with the governor and emergency response officials for a briefing, according to reports.

The president’s visit follows several public statements falsely accusing the state’s fire and parks management for the fires and claims that California’s “extreme agenda” has forced rolling power outages.
