Trump to Visit East Palestine Train Disaster Site While Biden Remains Silent

One of the best things about president Donald Trump during his years as commander-in-chief was his deep connection with the backbone of America’s working class.

That connection hasn’t gone away. The 45th President will visit East Palestine, Ohio, to see the damage of the Norfolk Southern trail derailment and cleanup efforts.

“A source familiar confirms to Fox News that former President Trump will visit East Palestine, OH, on Wednesday to tour the damage of the Norfolk Southern derailment and cleanup efforts,” Fox News’s Garrett Tenney tweeted.

Trump’s visit will come as the community deals with the aftermath of a train derailment that released toxic chemicals earlier this month.

The derailment included roughly 50 train cars.

Ohio officials also performed a “controlled release” of five derailed train cars holding vinyl chloride days after, causing massive smoke clouds.

But the train derailment “spewed more harmful pollutants into the air, surface soils, and water table than originally reported,” according to recent data.

As ABC News reported, a list of the cars involved in the derailment and the products they were carrying since released by Norfolk Southern reveals several more toxic chemicals than first made apparent following the crash.

The NBC News list shows substances like ethylene glycol monobutyl ether, Ethylhexyl acrylate, and isobutylene also in the rail cars that were derailed.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that exposure to ethylhexyl acrylate, a carcinogenic substance, may result in skin and eye irritation and a sensation of burning. Inhalation of this substance may also cause coughing, shortness of breath, and irritation of the nose and throat.

Now, where is sleepy Joe?

Of Course, the White House declined to say whether Joe Biden plans to visit East Palestine.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre noted that Biden’s schedule is packed with an upcoming trip to Poland to commemorate the first anniversary of the Ukraine war.

It looks like America’s backbone isn’t worth it for Joe.

Meanwhile, Biden’s Transportation Secretary, Pete Buttigieg, as not visited the derailment site, instead issuing an s late statement that said he continues “to be concerned” about the derailment’s impacts on families in the area.

Notably, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) denied an aid request from Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine (R), prompting all 17 members of Ohio’s congressional delegation to write letters demanding an answer as to why the governor’s aid request was denied.

Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., confirmed the former president’s upcoming visit and said, “If our ‘leaders’ are too afraid to actually lead real leaders will step up and fill the void.”
