Ohioans are outraged as Biden’s Administration betrays them; denying disaster relief to the victims of the recent train derailment. But Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is blaming President Trump for the incident, while East Palestine Mayor Trent Conaway reveals when the White House finally decided to reachout to him. With accusations flying and FEMA refusing to offer assistance, it’s becoming clear that something sinister lies behind this deadly train disaster in Ohio, leaving people desperate for help and searching for answers: Who is responsible? And where is the Biden Administration when its citizens need them?
Mayor Trent Conaway of East Palestine heard from the White House on Tuesday regarding a toxic train derailment that occurred in his city two weeks earlier. He relayed the message while fielding questions from an angry crowd demanding to know where Joe biden and Mayor Pete were.
In a series of tweets blaming Trump and redirecting the conversation to his party’s perceived successes, while not offering any sort of real solutions or assistance, Mayor Pete tweeted.
“We’re constrained by law on some areas of rail regulation (like the braking rule withdrawn by the Trump administration in 2018 because of a law passed by Congress in 2015), but we are using the powers we do have to keep people safe.”
“In the wake of the East Palestine derailment and its impact on hundreds of residents, we’re seeing lots of newfound or renewed (and welcome) interest in our work on rail safety, so I wanted to share more about what we’ve been doing in this area:”
“We are making historic investments on rail safety through funding in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, work that accelerates this year and continue in the years to come.”
Pete Buttigieg, a democrat and Biden’s Secretary of Transportation, blamed the accident on the braking systems altered under Trump’s administration. While he may have been quick to place blame, he failed to recognize that the Trump administration ended over a year ago and that he and his fellow left-wingers had every opportunity to correct this problem before it affected Ohio. Sadly, it appears as though they all dropped the ball.
Residents of East Palestine, Ohio are outraged at both the train company and Biden’s administration in the wake of a recent train derailment that released dangerous chemicals.
Meanwhile the EPA has said the drinking water is safe to drink there causing freshman Senator JD Vance to come out and challenge Biden’ EPA Administrator oto come out and have a drink for himself.
FEMA has repeatedly told Governor DeWine that his state is not eligible for assistance since the incident, leaving the community without much-needed help to deal with its aftermath. Coming to grips with such a devastating situation without any support from those who should provide it has only intensified the effects of this horrifying event.
Dan Tierney, a spokesperson for DeWine explained, FEMA believed the incident did not qualify as a traditional disaster, such as a tornado or hurricane. However, Tierney noted that the governor was able to secure some health assistance from the Department of Health and Human Services that will assist local residents with medical care costs.
The Biden Administration stands accused of an act of betrayal. Citizens of Ohio were hit with an unimaginable human crisis when that tanker derailed, causing an enormous explosion and fire that devastated their hometown – yet even now FEMA won’t offer support, while an absentee Pete Buttigieg blames the Trump administration instead. This deadly train derailment has left a once thriving town in ruins and its people grieving, yet the Biden Administration is nowhere to be found. The White House’s belated reaction may turn out to be too little too late for East Palestine’s citizens as well as for countless others across the country depending on reliable disaster relief during these times of strife. If nothing else, this train derailment shows us that yet again this administration is a failure with lives at stake and assistance that cannot wait – so where is the Biden Administration and why have they called off FEMA disaster relief?
