On Wednesday, former President Donald Trump visited East Palestine, Ohio, where a train derailment unleashed toxic materials on residents earlier this month, to meet with members of the community and local officials.
Trump is reportedly donating thousands of gallons of cleaning supplies and 13 pallets of water, each of which holds the equivalent of a couple of thousands of water bottles, to the ravaged community. Meanwhile, the Biden Administration has been facing heavy criticism for its delayed, inadequate response to the February 3 tragedy.
After landing at the Youngstown/Warren Regional Airport, Trump stopped at Little Beaver Creek where, even though details of his visit had not been released to the public, several of his supporters greeted him, local news WBOY reported Wednesday.
“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 told Breitbart News.

This is what happens mid-visit when residents of East Palestine, Ohio start chanting “We love you, President Trump!”
He drops what he’s doing and walks over to greet each and every one of them.
This is servant leadership and love for fellow Americans.????????
