Trump to Visit East Palestine Disaster Site, Donate Supplies amid Biden’s ‘Failed’ Response

Former president Donald Trump is set to travel to East Palestine, Ohio, Wednesday to donate thousands of gallons of cleaning supplies and drinking water to the communities hit by the train derailment disaster.

The train derailment was a major environmental disaster in East Palestine, a small town with roughly 5,000 residents; the Daily Fetched reported last week.

The train comprised over 100 cars, 50 derailed, 20 carrying hazardous materials, and ten cars with pressurized vinyl chloride, a highly flammable carcinogenic gas.

A source familiar with Trump’s plans said the former president would travel to East Palestine to meet with community members and officials.

The news comes a day after Joe Biden’s surprise visit to Ukraine, where he announced a further $500 Million for the country’s war efforts, again putting America last.

East Palestine Mayor Trent Conaway will join Trump; Sen. J.D. Vance, R-Ohio; Rep. Bill Johnson, R-Ohio; State Rep. Monica Robb-Blasdel; and Ohio State Sen. Michael Rulli in addition to other statewide and local officials, Fox News reported.

The former president is expected to donate thousands of gallons of cleaning supplies and 13 pallets of water. A single pallet typically holds a couple of thousand bottles of water.

“President Trump is meeting with the citizens of East Palestine and will never forget them and what they are going through,” a Trump advisor told Fox News.

“Contrast that with Biden and the federal government, which has failed them from the beginning.”

Meanwhile, East Palestine resdients have reported severe symptoms from toxins and chemicals that have become airborne and entered the water since the disaster took place on Feb. 7.

Although the Biden administration announced it would deploy medical personnel and toxicologists to East Palestine, it is still yet to do so.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine requested HHS and CDC assistance after being denied aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Despite the disastrous derailment, FEMA told DeWine Ohio isn’t eligible for disaster assistance.

White House officials said FEMA isn’t best equipped to support the state’s current needs.

But hours later, FEMA reversed its decision announcing it would deploy federal assistance to East Palestine.

Biden has faced massive criticism for not approving a FEMA disaster declaration.

According to officials, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has said he plans to visit East Palestine but still has not as of writing.

However, Biden’s absence has left East Palestine residents and officials “furious.”

“That was the biggest slap in the face,” Mayor Conaway said on “Jesse Watters Primetime” Monday. “That tells you right now he doesn’t care about us. He can send every agency he wants to, but I found out this morning that he was in Ukraine giving millions of dollars away to people over there and not to us…on President’s Day in our country.”

He added: “So, I’m furious.”
