MSNBC Anchor Blames Trump For Ohio Train Disaster

Who didn't see THIS coming?

  • MSNBC’s Joy Reid argued that former President Donald Trump was partially responsible for the East Palestine toxic chemical spill because his administration cut the very regulations that supposedly caused it.
  • On Wednesday, Reid rolled footage of Trump repeatedly bragging about how he rolled back federal regulations as president. The segment came amid an ongoing debate about whether a lack of safety rules caused the Ohio train derailment and the resulting spillage of toxic chemicals.
  • She then referred to how the Department of Transportation under Trump revoked Obama-era rules requiring trains carrying hazardous materials to upgrade their brakes.
  • “Trump definitely did do what he said he was going to do when it came to the rail industry,” she said.
