About: Coal Miner to Trump: “Coal Mining Isn’t Coming Back” | NYT - Opinion

Coal is not a partisan issue. It’s not about the left or right. Unfortunately most of the jobs lost are NEVER coming back. The coal executives are benefiting because of automation which has permanently replaced the workers who previously held these jobs. And in West Virginia and Kentucky because of past work related injuries, high unemployment and depression the Opioid crisis is at an all time high - killing people by the thousands. This is the truth that Congress has not addressed.
Looks like all of the libs were wrong. Coal production is roaring.
All these experts talk the talk. hahahahaha hahahahaha lol great news
Heres a dose of reality coal is currently worth 52 dollars per tonne. All the while asphalt is worth 160 dollars per tonne. Let that sink in black tar and rock sediment is worth more than a natural resource
clean coal is like saying there were fine people at charlotte peacefully protesting
He is totally right #bancoalmineing
Trump is a pathological liar pure and simple. But people love a con man that peddles pie in the sky dreams that cannot come true. Quit looking to demigods and find honest people to lead you. You may not like the truth but you won't feel like you have been conned and lied to. I hope we can all come together in 2020 and find a real American leader. Cheers my fellow citizens.
Well when the President signed a restriction bill, (that made them follow pollution regulations, disposal etc) so they could dump coal ash into the river, was quite foolish. I saw it live on TV when he signed and the videos you see on here was edited. A reporter asked, what regulation did it release and he answered "that they can dispose of ash into the rivers" and he claims that don't hurt anything, maybe we should make him drink that water.
The ash also ends up on the bank. When the coal is deep down, it may not hurt the earth, but when we dig it up and toss it around all over the place, it doesn't make soil good for crop growth, etc. The coal that ends up on the bank in a soupy mess. Not to mention how it affects our fish, craw fish (crawdad) etc.
I wonder if the coal miners are tired of all the "winning" he promised.
Ya'll voted for him and his promises. Sit back enjoy your popcorn and broken promises.
Trump doesn’t know the value of a dollars he’s declared bankruptcy multiple times.
BERNIE 2020!!!
Give me your whatsapp number
trump lied to all of the miners in America a vote for me will set coal free? as long as trump gets your vote he will continue to lie in your face every time!!!
What are u saying. Coal or not. Do you want the job or not? Why are u voting Dem?
Sadly some desperate people ignore science, basic economics and commonsense whilst others are just dumb and gullible and that explains the Trump vote in coal states. For all her faults and she wouldn't have been my first pick but she was far better than Trump, Clinton wanted to invest in programs for coal miners to get into new well paid jobs of the future like green energy. Currently a wind engineer is far better paid than a miner in a career with a bright future and a career where your not gonna get black lung disease or your kids breathing and drinking toxic crap like mercury. Stop being dumb and see the world as it is and not the fantasy one that Trump voters live in. An economic crash is coming and Trump is gonna make it worse, he won't suffer from it you will.
Well I can go ahead and tell you they can’t stop mining coal because there is no other way to make steel ! Steel is made out of coal !!!!
MORE Coal Plants have CLOSED under Trump in 2 years (12 and Counting) than closed under Obama in 8 years....Any MORON who thinks Trump can bring COAL or STEEL jobs back to America is a DIMWITTED FOOL....
He lied. That's what he does.
