While walking and meeting with locals, Trump was asked by The Post Millennial's Savanah Hernandez what his message is to President Joe Biden, who is currently in Ukraine visiting President Volodymyr Zelensky.
"If you were in office right now, what would you have done to help the people of East Palestine?" Hernandez asked, to which Trump said, "FEMA would have been here a long time ago."
The Biden regime recently denied FEMA aid to East Palestine, saying that it did not meet the criteria. "What East Palestine needs is much more expansive than what FEMA can provide," the official continued. "FEMA is on the frontlines when there is a hurricane or tornado. This situation is different."
When asking what Trump's message was to Biden, Trump responded, "get over here."
Trump would go on to deliver some remarks thanking police, firefighters, and first responders while assuring that those who have been impacted would not be left behind. "It's an honor to be here. It's an incredible place," Trump said, "we're here today in East Palestine to show our love and support for our fellow Americans in this hour of need... They've done some incredible work in a short period of time."
"To the people of East Palestine and nearby communities in Ohio and Pennsylvania, we have told you loud and clear, 'you are not forgotten.' We stand with you, pray for you, and we will stand with you in your fight to help answer and the accountability you deserve... will all be out there, very clearly," said Trump.
He continued, "19 days ago, tragedy struck this wonderful village and rocked the lives of people throughout this area and long beyond this area. It's been week since Americans have been inspired... watching over the weeks, inspired by your strength and your courage and how you've come together to stand up for the families in your area, in this village and beyond," Trump said, thanking first responders and railroad workers.
Trump said that the community needs "answers and results," and that Norfolk Southern needs to "fulfill its obligations."
"The people of East Palestine are going to be taken care of... When your representatives and all of your politicians get here, including Biden, get back from touring Ukraine, that he's got some money left over as we're now at $117 billion, and as you probably know, Europe when you add it all up has added $10 billion. That's a big difference... They're at it again, they're very good negotiators those people in Europe. When you add it all up, it's about the same size as the United States' [contributions] the economy of the different European countries, and they're at a very small number compared to us... That's a massive difference, it's a very small fraction of what we've put up and it affects them more than us. They have to do what they have to do."
Trump would then go to a nearby McDonald's restaurant, where he would continue to answer questions.
