Karine Jean-Pierre Said President ‘Biden will go to East Palestine’ Claims The President hasn’t had a ‘Break”

Biden’s Delayed Visit to East Palestine

Promised Visit

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre reaffirmed President Joe Biden’s commitment to visit East Palestine, Ohio, despite more than seven months having passed since a railway disaster occurred in the town. Biden’s recent statement, in which he cited a lack of a “break” as the reason for not visiting East Palestine, raised questions.

Pressing Questions

Questioning the Delay

During a press briefing, Fox News’ Peter Doocy pressed Jean-Pierre about Biden’s long delay in visiting East Palestine. Doocy questioned whether Biden had not taken a break since the railway disaster occurred on February 3. Jean-Pierre responded by reiterating the president’s intention to visit East Palestine.

Comparing Responses

Contrast with Previous Administration

To highlight the delay, it was noted that former President Donald Trump had visited Ohio the day before Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s visit to East Palestine. This comparison was made to emphasize the difference in response times.

Biden’s Explanation

Defending the Delay

Biden explained that his extensive international travel commitments had postponed his visit to East Palestine. Despite this delay, he emphasized that efforts were being made to provide the town with the necessary federal support.

Residents’ Frustration

Unmet Expectations

Residents of East Palestine expressed frustration at not receiving a presidential visit. Some residents felt that the delay made a visit pointless and urged for immediate federal support. Others criticized Biden for being absent during the disaster and mispronouncing the town’s name during his comments.

The Delayed Visit

Unfulfilled Promise

While President Biden’s delayed visit to East Palestine has sparked criticism and frustration among residents, the commitment to eventually visit the town remains unchanged. However, no specific date or time for the visit has been announced as of now.
