(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Former President Donald Trump is set to travel to the small town of East Palestine, Ohio on Wednesday, where he will donate thousands of gallons of cleaning supplies, along with over a dozen pallets of bottled water to the community as it wrestles with the after effects of a train derailment that led to the release of harmful, toxic chemicals into the surrounding area.
Fox News reports, “A source familiar with the former president’s plans told Fox News Digital that Trump will travel to East Palestine on Wednesday to meet with members of the community and community officials.”
“Joining the former president throughout his visit will be East Palestine Mayor Trent Conaway; Sen. J.D. Vance, R-Ohio; Rep. Bill Johnson, R-Ohio; State Rep. Monica Robb-Blasdel; and Ohio State Sen. Michael Rulli in addition to other statewide and local officials,” Fox News says.
Trump is expected to bring over 13 pallets of bottled water, each one containing a couple of thousand bottles. He is partnering up with Blue Line Moving and KORTX in order to get these supplies to the people who need them.
“President Trump is meeting with the citizens of East Palestine and will never forget them and what they are going through,” a Trump advisor said in a statement to Fox News Digital. “Contrast that with Biden and the federal government who has failed them from the beginning.”
“After more than two weeks, the Biden administration on Friday announced it would deploy medical personnel and toxicologists to East Palestine from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),” Fox’s article continues.
Ohio Gov. Mike Dewine requested assistance for the area from HHS and the CDC back on Feb. 16, after he was denied help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, otherwise known as FEMA. The agency told the governor Ohio is not eligible for any assistance.
An official for the White House told Fox News Digital on Friday that FEMA, which is tasked with providing relief to communities hit by hurricanes and other disasters, is not equipped to provide for the state’s needs.
Fox first reported that Trump would be visiting East Palestine on Friday evening. Just a few hours later, FEMA reversed its decision. Coincidence? Probably not.
President Joe Biden has failed miserably in handling this situation. Earlier this week, he opted to visit Ukraine instead of East Palestine, and the decision did not go over well with local residents.
“That was the biggest slap in the face,” Mayor Conaway went on to say on “Jesse Watters Primetime” Monday. “That tells you right now he doesn’t care about us. He can send every agency he wants to, but I found out this morning that he was in Ukraine giving millions of dollars away to people over there and not to us…on President’s Day in our country. I’m so furious.”
Liberals on Twitter are absolutely furious with former President Donald Trump for daring to visit East Palestine, Ohio with donated bottles of water and other supplies residents of the area desperately need in what is a most excellent show of true, genuine leadership. As Greta Thunberg so eloquently said, “how dare you,” Mr. Trump. This is just further proof that the radical left has a grudge against Trump that they just can’t let go of. It runs so deep that even when he is doing something great, they refuse to acknowledge it due to their personal hatred of the man.
According to Jeffrey Clark of Fox News, the president’s visit comes just a few weeks after a train carrying harmful toxic chemicals derailed near a small Ohio community, which has caused serious anxiety in many of those who call the town home, especially concerning the safety of their drinking water.
As a result of this fear, Trump brought along some of his own “Trump Spring Water,” which he jokingly refers to as “Trump water.”
But, as stated earlier, there were quite a few leftists who were very unhappy about the visit, going on the social media platform the day after to complain about the former president’s good deed. In fact, Anti-Trump PAC The Lincoln Project actually laid the blame for the train derailment on Trump.
“Trump shredded the safety regulations that could have kept East Palestine residents safe and then rolled into town with Trump water and a campaign slogan. He’s as useless now as he was as a president,” the organization said.
The founder of the group, Rick Wilson, mocked Trump bringing water, saying, “Oddly, ‘Trump Water’ is what his diaper valet calls it.”

During the speech he made on Wednesday, the former president told the residents of the small Ohio town they had not been forgotten.
“We stand with you. We pray for you. And we will stand with you and your fight to help ensure the accountability that you deserve,” he went on to say.
