Passionate Republican voters, it’s time to pay attention. President Biden’s lack of action and empathy towards the residents of East Palestine, Ohio, after the recent toxic train derailment, is proof that he doesn’t have your best interests at heart.
Despite the toxic muck threatening the safety and well-being of the residents of East Palestine, President Biden has yet to visit the town. Even CNN’s Miguel Marquez acknowledges that it wouldn’t make a difference to these residents, who overwhelmingly voted for Donald Trump, if Biden did visit.
But that doesn’t mean he should just ignore them altogether.
Meanwhile, former President Trump has visited the town and donated cleaning supplies and his own brand of bottled water. He showed his support for the people of East Palestine and promised to hold those responsible accountable.
That’s what true leadership looks like.
Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg finally made a visit to East Palestine, but it was 20 days after the derailment, which is a long time for the people of the town to wait for help.
Buttigieg admitted he waited too long to respond publicly, which shows that the Biden administration isn’t on top of things when it comes to crises like this.
The fact is, the residents of East Palestine need someone who will take action and fight for them, not just offer empty words and delayed responses. They need a leader like Donald Trump, who understands the importance of supporting and standing with the people who put him in office.
It’s time for passionate Republican voters to demand better from our leaders. We need to hold Biden and his administration accountable for their lack of action and empathy towards the residents of East Palestine. We need leaders who will put the needs of the American people first, not their own political agendas.
As the midterm elections approach, we must remember the importance of electing leaders who truly represent our values and will fight for us.
We can’t afford to have leaders who turn a blind eye to the needs of the American people, especially those who are suffering from disasters like the East Palestine train derailment.
In the end, it’s up to us to demand better from our leaders. We must make our voices heard and ensure that our elected officials are working for us, not against us. The residents of East Palestine deserve better, and so do we. Let’s make sure our leaders know that.
