President Biden has yet to travel to East Palestine, Ohio, where on February 3rd, a Norfolk Southern freight train carrying hazardous chemicals, including vinyl chloride, derailed in East Palestine, Ohio. It is widely considered one of the worst ecological disasters in America.
President Trump was first to visit the disaster site. In addition to bringing attention to the ecological disaster that Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and Joe Biden ignored, he also brought fresh water and cleaning supplies to the East Palestine citizens.
East Palestine residents were ordered to evacuate for only a day while the government and Norfolk Southern attempted to clean up the chemicals, which resulted in them burning many of the hazardous materials and releasing the toxins into the air.
Reports are coming in daily from citizens who live in the area that are suffering from a multitude of health issues, including burning eyes and trouble breathing. Many believe their symptoms are related to the release of toxic chemicals into the air and water in East Palestine and surrounding areas.
Dead fish and wildlife are also being found in the water or near the water that was reportedly contaminated with the toxins from the train wreck.
