Former President Donald Trump has officially arrived in East Palestine, Ohio, as reported earlier by his son Donald Trump Jr. The former President used his personal jet to provide support at the site of a train cart pile-up involving over 50 carts.

Ohio residents remain uncertain about the safety of their drinking water and air nearly 20 days after the initial disaster, with no visit from President Biden or Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to assess the situation.
In response, Donald Trump has organized the delivery of water, cleaning supplies, and other essentials to those affected by the disaster. This gesture is seen as an acknowledgment of the ongoing toxic situation that the media and the Democratic party have downplayed.
While it has been confirmed that Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg will visit East Palestine tomorrow, some residents feel that his visit is overdue, as he has ignored Ohio for nearly three weeks.

Trump Goes To East Palestine, Ohio Tomorrow: Why Is Biden In Ukraine?
East Palestine, Ohio continues to grapple with the aftermath of a dangerous situation, where over 50 train carts carrying toxic chemicals derailed and were set on fire in a residential area. Former President Donald Trump has announced his plans to visit the area, while President Biden has not yet visited and instead traveled to Ukraine to provide them with additional financial aid.
The Biden administration’s response to the situation in Ohio has been slow, with Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and President Biden taking 13 days to acknowledge the toxic and cancerous chemicals released into the air following the train derailment.
Despite this, Biden has not yet made plans to visit the area, but Buttigieg has finally announced his intention to visit the site. Meanwhile, the people of East Palestine, Ohio are still waiting for much-needed funds and workers for a clean-up effort.
Last week, Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) took to his Twitter account, saying:
Breaking News: Trump will visit East Palestine, Ohio next week. If our “leaders” are too afraid to actually lead real leaders will step up and fill the void.
