(AmericanProsperity.com) – Former President Trump visited East Palestine, Ohio after the train derailment led to toxic chemicals being released into the air, according to Breitbart. Speaking to the outlet, Trump said that Biden “should have been here,” and sent him a message caught on video saying, “Get over here.”
After authorities started a controlled fire to prevent an explosion of the leaked chemicals, residents have been reporting sicknesses and deaths in their animals. They have also brought undrinkable water filled with toxins to the public’s attention. Upon his visit, Trump brought thousands of bottles of water.
During his visit, Trump noted how U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg still had yet to see the disaster. Instead, supporters of the Biden administration have blamed the derailment on Trump, accusing him of scaling back safety regulations. But as Jacob Yusufov, a journalist and editor of the conservative magazine American Pigeon wrote on Twitter, the priority of Buttigieg has not been safety, but rather diversity requirements.
During a speech at the National Association of Counties Conference, Buttigieg was more concerned about white people having construction jobs and refused to mention the incident in Ohio.
Yusufov also pointed to the outdated safety tab on the transportation website, noting that it is still sporting the words of Elaine L. Chao, who served under Trump.
FEMA also reportedly denied assistance to East Palestine because the disaster is not “natural.” Conservatives have pointed out that while the federal government ignores this American town, Biden visited Ukraine and decided to pay for government pensions with taxpaying dollars.
The claim that FEMA cannot support East Palestine has been scrutinized after they gave $110 million to organizations providing food and shelter to illegal immigrants coming across the border as a result of Biden’s open border policies, according to Fox News.
