Residents of East Palestine took to Twitter to express gratitude for President Donald Trump’s visit to the town earlier this week, which was made more notable due to Joe Biden’s absence.
“At least somebody actually showed up,” one resident told One America News.
“He’s all heart…He loves everybody, you can tell,” another said.
Residents began cheering and chanting, “Trump! Trump! Trump!” as he arrived in the town.
As the 2024 presidential candidate walked over to the residents, some yelled, “We love you,” and “Thank you for coming!”
Trump interacted with the town’s residents, shaking hands and signing hats.
Trump also went into a McDonald’s, joked with smiling employees, bought the fire department and police department lunch, and anyone inside the restaurant.
He also came with truckloads of water and supplies, which were distributed to residents before his arrival:
Meanwhile, Tim Pool, host of Timcast, called Trump’s visit a “win win win for everybody.”
One reporter asked Trump what his message was to Biden.
Trump responded, “Get over here.”
