Broken Promise – Saving Coal

 
 

Remember when Trump...

promised to save the coal industry while campaigning? Or when he said “the coal industry is back” and proclaimed victory for coal when he was elected? Well more coal-fired power plants closed in the first two years of Trump’s presidency than all of President Obama’s first term. Even Kentucky coal country, coal miners are protesting. They found out in the middle of their afternoon shift that they were being laid off and their last paycheck bounced and their next one would too.
