Buttigieg, Florida Republicans clash over Ohio derailment response
Pete Buttigieg being ‘shamed’ into going to East Palestine: Rep. Byron Donalds
Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., discusses Pete Buttigieg’s absence in East Palestine following the train derailment, the administration’s handling of disasters and examining the Biden family business.
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg clashed with Florida Republicans on Twitter on Tuesday following the toxic train derailment in Ohio.
He fired back at Florida Sen. Marco Rubio who tweeted that Buttigieg should be fired following his response to the disaster.
"First @SecretaryPete was m.i.a. on the derailment. Then he lies to media claiming my 2021 letter calling for more track inspections was a letter calling for deregulation. He is an incompetent who is focused solely on his fantasies about his political future [and] needs to be fired," Rubio wrote.
Buttigieg replied that "the facts don't lie."
