    Raking is actually done in the Finnish forests, in part to prevent forest fires. Whereas Finnish firemen were called to help put down forest fires in the neighboring Sweden during the summer of the Trump's statement in question, in Finland there were no large forest fires that summer. Raking is a forest industry term, but not related to raking of leaves. Thank you, President Trump, for educating those who do not speak English well or are not well educated on this field.

    You Americans don’t appreciate having a clown as a president. If he goes you lose your job and we lose our fun. We use to think George Bush was fun but this guy is unique

    meeeeehhhhhh I don't know... I am a german and yes technicaly the word "Rechtsschutzversicherungsgesellschaft" works in the german language but it isn't a real word. At least it is not a word that's been used really. Oh and by the way: that dude who is sitting at the german desk (the one directly behinde the sign that says "germany"). That is Heiko Maas, our current foreign minister.... aaaand yeah... lets say he isn't the best we had...
    PS: No mention about the fact that the german lady wears glasses and has a nother pair of glasses on her head? that looks weird^^

    I think, following the Trump-as-genius reasoning..(yet bafflingly illiterate) He actually intended to say “we have to look after the FLORA of the Forest!” Yes. Agreed. The Commander-In-Dumbass really does need to consult a dictionary, thesaurus or at least NOT an Ouija Board!? No. To be fair, Trump did hesitate when He realised He couldn’t remember the word He wanted to say.
    Maybe that’s why He can’t get his head around the word “Impeach!?” *opinion**

    The problem with Democrats is that they are so smart and keep telling the uneducated Republicans that they are stupid. As a consequence, those uneducated Republicans and other uneducated Democrats don't vote for Democrat candidates. Republican politicians are probably more corrupted (maybe not much) than Democrats, but they know how to talk to their uneducated voters. If Dems don't change, they will keep seeing Trump of a second or third term.

    Democrats are for late term abortion the murder of innocent babies that's what they stand for! The only good democrat is an aborted democrat, one that's been converted to fertilizer! They don't deserve to live under the red, white, and blue! Democrats are the pig feces of the human gene pool, the Nazis of the new world, and the world would be a far better place without them! Abort democrats!

    In Germany they log Forrest's in strips spaced apart and then replant trees. In America they clear cut an entire area and in many cases don't replant. We don't bother. And then the land is devastated, and scrub trees like Alder and brush grow up before the Douglas Fir or Cedar even has a chance to get a foothold. In America we rape the land and leave it to essentially go fallow. Which is disgusting. But we live in a disgusting country.

    Great bit - very funny. Two important policies discussed with fact problems:
    1) Immigration - is unsustainable policy; countries do not benefit from immigration statistically and nationalism is an appropriate policy - especially in mature capitalisms. This said - so is Empathy - because systemic failings of empathy is "Evil" - like the Nuremberg Diaries summarized NAZI Germany. Countries must embrace policies of Respect and Good - or they will eventually lose everything.
    2) Climate vs Environment - climate-warming is real - but the science on humanity's contribution is rubbish pretty-much. Environment - Pollution and toxic emissions, is a separate discussion - you manage Climate; You Stop Pollution. One example - Fracking with lethal chemicals - is ignored on a humanly-irresponsible scale in the U.S. today. Why? Because voters who don't own poisoned land, allow it to be lumped-into another discussion that has an in-house problem with dodgy science. Poisoning the planet surface is never socially acceptable and there are clean alternatives available; I think the Netherlands uses just steam with great results.

    I’ve never been to Finland.... but i don’t really picture it with forests and fires.....
    I’m thinking .... ice. And cold. And that’s why they don’t have fires.

    With the nearly 7000 thumbs down this video has received, I'm really curious what the reasoning is for their dislike of it. I went down several pages of comments and didn't see a single one in favor of Trump.... I'd like to see someone try to argue for why Trump isn't weird, given the clips of his weirdness and lying.

    The raking of the forests is an actual truth here in Finland... We actually keep our forests clean... We might not actually rake the forest floors... But we do walks and clean up forest floors and make sure we won't make campfires just about anywhere...
