President Donald Trump visited Malibu on Saturday to survey the damage wrought by the Woolsey Fire - his second stop on his tour of the Golden State as authorities continue to search for more than 1,200 missing in and around Paradise.
Palm trees stood scorched and some homes were burned to the ground on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Malibu.
The President toured the damaged areas alongside California Governor Jerry Brown and Governor-elect Gavin Newsom.
After Air Force One landed at Naval Air Station Point Mugu at 3:11pm local time, the President was given a tour of the wreckage as his motorcade drove along the Pacific Coast Highway.
Trump was accompanied on Air Force One by Brown and Newsom.

Nearly 12,000 homes and buildings, including most of the town of Paradise, were incinerated hours after the blaze erupted, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) has said.
Thousands of additional structures are still threatened by the Camp Hill fire, and as many as 50,000 people were under evacuation orders at the height of the blaze.
But the blaze isn't over just yet. The National Weather Service issued a red flag warning in the Camp Fire region for Saturday evening into Sunday warning high winds could cause the flames to spread rapidly. The number of fire crews in the area was bolstered to help prevent the fire from gaining traction.
The disaster already ranks among the deadliest wildfires in the United States since the turn of the last century

'I WANT GREAT CLIMATE': TRUMP STICKS TO HIS GUNS WHEN ASKED IF CLIMATE CHANGE CAUSED WILDFIRES
President Donald Trump, who has said in the past that he believes climate change is a 'hoax,' insists that his opinion hasn't changed - despite the devastating wildfires that have ravaged Northern and Southern California.
Trump was asked by reporters on Saturday if his thinking about climate change was altered by surveying the damage from the Camp and Woolsey Fires.
'I have a strong opinion,' Trump told the press.
'I want great climate, we are going to have that and we are going to have forests that are very safe.'
The President then began to talk about the 'floors' of the forests, though it is doubtful anyone understood what he meant.
'We’ve got to take care of the floors, you know the floors of the forest, very important,' Trump said.
'You look at other countries where they do it differently and it’s a whole different story.'
Trump said that the United States should emulate Finland when it comes to management of forests.
'I was with the president of Finland and he said … we’re a forest nation, he called it a forest nation, and they spend a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things,' the President said.
'They don’t have any problem, and what it is, it’s a very small problem.'
Last week, when the wildfires were beginning to spread, Trump angered many when he blamed the blazes on California's management of forests.
'There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor,' he wrote in a Twitter post.
'Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!,' he added.
National Forests make up 57 percent of California 33 million acres of Forest land. National Forests are mostly land that was never settled in the early days of the state and remained property of the Federal Government. This land is maintained by the Federal Government in the form of numerous National Forests. This fire started in Plumas National forest.. They don't pay California to do it it is maintained by the US Forestry Service. Over the years the state has purchase special places from private land owners and the Federal Government for State Parks like Armstrong Redwoods State Park, these State parks are less than 2 percent of California Forest land and are maintain by the state. California total acreage is 101 million Acres so around 20 percent of California is Federal property maintained by the US Forest Service.
The surrounding bush is virtually unscathed even in proximity to a destroyed home. For inspiration the children holding the flag is powerful. Of course the deep seated message will not be asked or attended to. The nation will not turn to God or repentance. The president will not lead his nation in prayer. We will stand by our wicked ways until the trial in the lake of fire and stand by them even as we are consumed. It is a strange destiny we bring upon ourselves to never reflect or question our path so we can be delivered from evil. This fact in of itself proves Darwin was wrong. We are not evolving but devolving.
