After Tuesday’s train derailment near Philadelphia, conservative real estate mogul Donald Trump proclaimed he’s “the only one” who can fix the country’s infrastructure.

Trump took to Twitter to post his self-promotional message and criticize politicians who couldn’t fix the problem or “build.” The Amtrak derailment, the cause of which is still being investigated, occurred when the train was on its way from Washington, D.C. to New York City. As CNN reported, six passengers died and 150 were injured.
