California is facing one of its deadliest wildfires and many people have their own explanations as to why that is but Donald Trump has the answer for you: Americans aren't following the Finnish example, raking their forests. In the great country of Finland (located in Northern Europe, next to Russia, bordered also by Sweden and Norway for those who don't know shit about geography) everyone fulfills their civic duty that consists of raking the forests that cover over 70 % of Finland's land area. By everyone raking and therefore maintaining the forests, Finland for example missed out the wildfires that its neighbors Sweden and Russia suffered from last summer when the Arctic circle was quite literally, on fire.

That, my friend, is fake news. Not everyone in Finland rakes forests. No one is required to do so and if someone does that, they are most likely bored out of their minds and have nothing better to do. True, many Finns live near forests and many Finns also own a rake. I have one. I used to rake our garden of leaves when I was a kid and I hated it. I do not rake wild forests and even if I did, I wouldn't be saving the country from fires.

Then where did Trump get this idea? From the Finnish President Sauli Niinistö, a week or so ago in Paris where both attended the WWI memorial. Right now, Niinistö is more than confused. He has said to several Finnish medias that he has no idea how Trump came up with raking. Niinistö merely said, "We take care of our forests and the fires are prevented successfully." Nothing about raking. 

The outcome of this is, in my opinion, quite hilarious. News medias are commenting on Trump now spreading fake news himself and Finns, being the small nation they are, are having a blast with this amount of humorous attention they are getting. Internet has been flooding with people taking pictured of themselves in forests with rakes and even vaccuum cleaners. About every Finnish media has mentioned this when telling how the wildfired in California are doing. 

The problem is, is it concerning that the most powerful man on Earth has no idea what's happening? Yes. Should we cry about it or laugh it off? I honestly have no idea at this point. Maintaining forests is crucial to prevent forests from turning into ash but it's not done with rakes. And the US President giving false tips on forest maintenance and then once again ending up as the laughing stock of the world surely isn't helping.
