Former President Donald Trump was in East Palestine, Ohio this week, showing his support for the community after a train derailment beget an environmental disaster.
Trump brought with him bottled water and other assorted supplies, as residents near the ensuing explosion have been fearful about the hazardous chemicals and fumes that have blanketed the area.
But Trump also had his quick-witted campaign trail attitude in tow, dropping several rather bombastic statements about President Joe Biden’s response to the incident.
Former President Donald Trump told Breitbart News that President Joe Biden should have been in East Palestine, but “chose to go a different route,” referring to Biden’s recent trip to Kyiv, Ukraine. “Get over here,” President Trump said to Biden.
“I think he should’ve come here. I think he should’ve been here. He should’ve been here, and he chose to go a different route,” President Trump told Breitbart News while visiting residents inside a McDonalds in East Palestine.
On Wednesday, Trump visited East Palestine, where he delivered truckloads of thousands of bottles of water.
Then came the coldest three words of the day:
While visiting a creek in East Palestine on Wednesday, Trump was asked what his message is to Biden, to which the 45th president said, “get over here.”
President Biden has yet to visit the area, prompting a great deal of criticism among concerned residents.
