Biden Risks Lives Of Americans, Blames Trump
As you likely already know a train recently was derailed in East Palestine, Ohio, which resulted in several highly toxic chemicals being spilt and burned endangering the lives of thousands of Americans.
This train derailment happened under President Biden’s watch and for the most part Biden’s Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg attempted to sweep it under the rug and acted like it wasn’t his problem.
Sadly for the Biden Administration the media didn’t sweep it under the rug and now there is no telling what will happen to the thousands of people who happened to inhale all of the toxic chemicals.
According to Fox, Pete Buttigieg, who knows this is a massive catastrophe, attempted to blame former President Donald Trump for the incident by claiming that he was responsible for it since he reversed a small safety rule when he was president.
Buttigieg pointed to a 2018 rule which was removed under Trump that required all trains carrying dangerous chemicals to have electronically controlled pneumatic (ECP) brakes.
Buttigieg took to Twitter and wrote, “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.”
Buttigieg then wrote, “We’re constrained by law on some areas of rail regulation (like the braking rule withdrawn by the Trump administration in 2018 because of a law passed by Congress in 2015), but we are using the powers we do have to keep people safe. And of course, I’m always ready to work with Congress on furthering (or in some cases, restoring) our capacity to address rail safety issues.”
It’s insane to see Democrats try and blame Donald Trump for all of their mistakes. Pete Buttigieg and President Biden should have prevented this disaster the second it happened. Instead they let all of these Americans inhale dangerous smoke and there is no telling what will happen.
