While Biden visits Ukraine, American infrastructure is falling apart.
Joe Biden Ignores Ohio, Instead Spends President’s Day in Ukraine
The East Palestine train derailment and “controlled release” of highly-toxic chemicals has caused possibly the biggest environmental catastrophe in American history.
And trains continue to derail across the country.
Billions of taxpayer dollars go to Ukraine, while the United States can’t keep locomotives on the railroad.
On Sunday, there was another train derailment in Ohio.
Although it wasn’t the disastrous magnitude of East Palestine, it’s another example of America’s failing infrastructure.
The derailment occurred in Delphos and took out two electric poles.

At 12:45am, a train came off the rails at the crossing on the intersection of Bank Street and South Bredeick Street. One of the hopper cars then struck and lifted two electric poles from the ground.
The intersections of Bank Street and Bredeick Street as well as Bank Street, Ohio Street, and State Street were closed, as the train was blocking the crossings at the time.
According to the Delphos Fire Department, there were no injuries, and the area has been cleared as of Sunday afternoon.
