East Palestine Residents Chant ‘No More Joe,’ Wave ‘Trump Won’ Flags

Residents of East Palestine Ohio, who were impacted by the recent toxic train derailment disaster have been taking to the streets to chant “no more Joe.”

Locals lined the streets waiting for President Donald Trump’s arrival and voiced their outrage at being snubbed by Joe Biden and his administration.

Residents of the small town could be seen waving flags that said “Trump Won,” in reference to the 2020 election.

Local and state authorities previously evacuated all residents within one mile of the February 3 derailment and started a controlled burn of industrial chemicals loaded on the vehicle to decrease the risk of an explosion, which could have sent shrapnel throughout the small town.

Vinyl chloride, a carcinogenic substance used to manufacture PVC, was emitted from five train cars in the form of massive plumes of dark smoke, prompting concerns about air and water quality for the millions of people who live in the Ohio River Basin.

Trump, who announced his third bid for the White House at the end of last year, revealed that he would visit East Palestine on Wednesday and draw attention to the relative silence on the disaster from President Joe Biden, who appears most likely to lead the Democrat ticket next year.

The Post Millennial reporter Savanah Hernandez filmed dozens of people gathered along roadsides in the rust belt town as they awaited the visit; some waved large Trump flags as others chanted slogans such as “No more Joe.”

The crowd appeared displeased as one individual held a sign bearing critical slogans about Trump.

Some 72% of Columbiana County residents cast their ballots for Trump in the 2020 election cycle, according to data from the Columbiana County Board of Elections.

Biden has not yet visited East Palestine but took a clandestine trip to Ukraine on Monday to express solidarity with the nation’s war effort against Russia.

FEMA granted a request to aid residents of East Palestine with the disaster recovery only after Trump revealed his plans to visit the town, a note that the 45th president sounded on social media.

“He doesn’t care about us,” he added.
