According to Fox News, President Trump will travel to East Palestine, Ohio next week to tour the area and visit members of the community as they struggle to cope with the aftermath of the train derailment that led to a large release of toxic chemicals.
The main chemical mentioned in reports is vinyl chloride, which is used to make PVC. Exposure to vinyl chloride is known to cause certain cancers, according to Cancer.gov:
Vinyl chloride exposure is associated with an increased risk of a rare form of liver cancer (hepatic angiosarcoma), as well as primary liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma), brain and lung cancers, lymphoma, and leukemia.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) identified additional potentially carcinogenic chemicals onboard the Norfolk Southern train that derailed near East Palestine, Ohio.
Fish and other aquatic life are turning up dead in local creeks and rivers that feed into the Ohio River and eventually, the Mississippi River.
Chickens and pets in the region are reportedly dying.
Breaking Digest reported earlier that vinyl chloride has contaminated the Ohio River and the waterways that run along it.
Despite, the obvious risk to residents’ safety, officials continue to insist that it is safe to return home… the water is safe to drink, and the air is safe to breathe.
Joe Biden has ignored the cataclysmic disaster.
Pete Buttigieg has not visited the area and blamed the disaster on President Trump.
Now, President Trump will visit East Palestine on Wednesday.
