Former President Donald J. Trump will not only be traveling to East Palestine, Ohio, the site of an ecological disaster, but he will also be making a big act of generosity towards those who have been left in its wake.
Donald Trump will be meeting with members of the community who have been exposed to toxic chemicals following the Norfolk Southern train derailment on February 3rd. He will also be donating more than a dozen pallets of clean bottled water to the community, a spokesperson told Fox News.
Trump is expected to donate “thousands of gallons of cleaning supplies,” along with 13 pallets of water, each holding over a thousand bottles of water, to the East Palestine community. Trump is teaming up with nonprofit organizations Blue Line Moving and KORTX in order to get the people exposed to the toxic spill the aid they need.
“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 who has failed them from the beginning.”
According to the report, the following people will be joining the former president on his visit: East Palestine Mayor Trent Conaway; Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH); Rep. Bill Johnson(R-OH); State Rep. Monica Robb-Blasdel; and Ohio State Sen. Michael Rulli, in addition to other statewide and local officials.
After waiting more than two weeks to mobilize aid for East Palestine, Ohio, the Biden administration on Friday announced it would send emergency response teams to East Palestine from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The joint announcement by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine as well the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) came moments after Donald Trump’s announcement on Friday that he is going to the East Palestine community.
President Biden is currently on an overseas visit to Ukraine and Poland. He currently has no plans to visit the Ohio community.
