In an attempt to look like a hero, Trump arrived at the small town of East Palestine, the scene of the toxic train derailment, with water and some supplies. At the photo opp  fire station, the former president said:

“What this community needs now are not excuses and all of the other things you’ve been hearing but answers and results.”

What he failed to mention was that it was under his administration that rail safety rules were rolled back. (And don’t forget he also downsized the Environmental Protection Agency.)

Even some residents of East Palestine — including Trump supporters — saw little value in his trip.

One ex-Trump supporter who had voted for him put it bluntly,  “He’s here to get elected” explained that he had turned against Trump after the Trump mob stormed the US capital on January 6.
