US President Donald Trump has threatened to cut federal funding for the wildfires sweeping California, in a Twitter spat with the state's governor.

Nearly 100,000 acres have been destroyed by wildfires in recent weeks, and thousands have been forced from their homes.

Trump blamed Democratic governor Gavin Newsom, saying he had done a "terrible job of forest management".

The president made a similar threat last year when fires killed 86 people.
