Joe Biden has no scheduled plans to visit East Palestine, Ohio in the foreseeable future.

A train carrying toxic chemicals derailed there on Feb. 3, causing environmental and health concerns. The White House has said that Biden is open to visiting the site, but there are no scheduled plans.

Former President Donald Trump, Sen. J.D. Vance (R-Ohio) and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg have visited the community to check out the situation first hand.

Area resident Tammy Tsai tells MRCTV that even though, “they make fun of it on the news,” Trump’s visit was “uplifting” and that the people in the town “really needed that.”

Tsai discusses the situation in East Palestine with MRCTV in the video above.
