Hours After Trump Announces Upcoming Visit to East Palestine, FEMA Reverses Course and Will Support Ohio Community

The announcement by President Trump with his intent to visit East Palestine next Wednesday, followed moments later by a reversal announcement from FEMA stating they will now offer support to East Palestine, do not seem coincidental.

The Biden administration, including the EPA, FEMA and Transporation Secretary, was likely very worried about the optics of getting blasted by President Trump very visibly next week for their lack of urgency and concern.   Moments after Trump announces his visit, FEMA reverses their prior denial of aid. lol

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Just hours after saying he “[did] not expect” members of the Federal Emergency Management Agency to be in East Palestine, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine now confirms the government entity will, in fact, be sending a crew to assist with the aftermath of the train derailment in the village.

In a joint statement released Friday night, DeWine and FEMA Regional Administrator Thomas C. Sivak said the agency would deploy a Regional Incident Management Assistance Team (IMAT) to Columbiana County starting Saturday, along with a senior response official. The workers will “support ongoing operations, including incident coordination and ongoing assessments of potential long-term recovery needs.”

[…] DeWine had previously requested federal help, and today the Department of Health and Human Services announced toxicologists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would be journeying to East Palestine to assist with public health testing. However, the governor’s request for FEMA assistance was initially denied, with the agency apparently telling his office the current situation “[did] not quality for assistance.” (read more)

  1. Two weeks after the set fire, and contaminating the hell out of people, animals, with plume going into neighboring states, and after Trump announces he is going, the WH and CDC are suddenly on it? Wow, hope it don’t put them out any.
    The WH has sent $100 Billion to Ukraine, but does nothing for our own country. The Hunter Biden laptop (I did purchase the whole thing in print) not only shows what sick f__ckers the Biden family actually are, but shows we were sold out to Ukraine and the CCP. They should be tried for treason, no impeached. I doubt there will even be an impeachment.
    This country is going to hell. All of our elected officials are greedy, traitorous sons of bitches. The court systems have gone to hell, and most of the state and county govts have gone to hell with them. Where I live, they are so dead set that we are going to live in little cracker box apartments, where we are not allowed to have a car, and work, sleep, eat, and shop in the little communities that they set up, that our county is quickly building these little communities, and refuse to fix potholes in the road, that your big SUV can fall into and never be seen again. Seriously last summer, there were roads with grass growing in the cracks, the cracks were so big.
    The sheeple are not awakening, if they are, they don’t care about any of these things. It is accelerating, and people are oblivious to it.
