Rumors started swirling on Friday evening that former president and 2024 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump had plans to visit the site of the East Palestine, Ohio, train derailment.

People close to Trump, like personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and Trump 2016 presidential campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, wrote tweets over the past 24 hours, hinting that he was heading that way.

Rep. Lauren Boebert, who is also an ally of Trump, wrote:
