Former President Donald Trump visited East Palestine, Ohio where he delivered truckloads of bottled water following a toxic train derailment earlier this month that left the small town reeling.
Government officials at both the state and federal levels have not risen up to the challenge leaving the people furious. Trump meant to shame them by going before they did and it worked because now Pete Buttigieg has scheduled a trip to see the disaster firsthand.
“President Trump is meeting with the citizens of East Palestine, and he will never forget them and what they are going through. Contrast that with Biden and the federal government, who have failed them from the beginning,” Trump spokesperson Steven Cheung said.
John Rourke, the CEO of Blue Line Moving, who shipped the pallets of water to East Palestine, said the company moved 13 pallets of water, over 14,000 bottles, to the small town.

“Joe Biden/Pete Buttigieg stay away. Make sure those Ukrainian pensions are taken care of,” Rourke told Breitbart News.
In the least shocking news of the day, no-show Pete Buttigieg will finally go to East Palestine tomorrow.
The day after Trump went and shamed him.
An administration official told CNN that Buttigieg is going to East Palestine.
“The Secretary is going now that the EPA has said it is moving out of the emergency response phase and transitioning to the long-term remediation phase.
“His visit also coincides with the NTSB issuing its factual findings of the investigation into the cause of the derailment and will allow the secretary to hear from USDOT investigators who were on the ground within hours of the derailment to support the NTSB’s investigation.
“The Environmental Protection Agency is leading the Federal response to hold Norfolk Southern accountable and make the company clean up its mess.
“That is how it works in response to a chemical spill.
“The Department of Transportation will continue to do its part by helping get to the bottom of what caused the derailment and implementing rail safety measures, and we hope this sudden bipartisan support for rail safety will result in meaningful changes in Congress.”
