President Biden is not planning on visiting East Palestine, Ohio, the location of the train derailment that resulted in a huge release of toxic chemicals.
Responding to a reporter, Biden said, “At this point, I’m not. I did a whole video.” The president struggled to recall the name of the video call but a reporter bailed him out by telling him it was a Zoom video.
The exchange was posted on Twitter.
Q: “Are you planning on traveling to East Palestine?”
BIDEN: “At this moment not. I was, I did a whole video, I mean, uh, you know, the uh, what the Hell? On Zoom. All I can hear every time I think of Zoom is that song of my generation, 'Who's Zoomin' Who?'” pic.twitter.com/tFo4zHhEkk

During an interview with David Muir on ABC News, Biden didn’t answer the question if he was going to visit East Palestine and couldn’t recall if he talked with the mayor.

Biden’s personal focus on the environmental disaster is far different than former President Trump who made a visit to East Palestine.
President Trump visits the people of East Palestine, Ohio and brings them water & supplies while Joe Biden only cares about pushing more war and US money in Ukraine.
Thank you President Trump for continuing to show what America First looks like. 🇺🇸

While Trump went to Ohio, Biden went to Ukraine.
The contrast between Biden and Trump is crystal clear. Biden is an America Last president while Trump is all about America First.
