Big Coal Producer Wants To Hear This From Trump

coal_2Donald Trump can make good on his pledge to “make America great again” by embracing policies that put coal industry workers back on the job and lower the cost of electricity, an energy executive told Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo Tuesday.

“A policy that will get the lowest cost electricity, which is a staple of life, for those folks on fixed incomes, for the manufacturer of a product for the global marketplace. All types of fossil fuels, renewables, nuclear — all  of the above. That’s what gets people endorsed. That will get a strong America and make America great again,” said Robert Murray, CEO of Murray Energy.

According to Murray, the Obama administration’s policies are hurting the lowest income families, saying there were about 35,000 jobs lost in the coal industry this year and 60,000 in all.

“It’s a tragedy what’s happening in the coal fields, with the destruction of lives, by Barack Obama, who is the greatest destroyer America’s had. And Mrs. Clinton says ‘I will expand on those policies,’” he said.

    MR. Murray is absolutely correct . As long as corporate welfare “renewable ” companies are assured of continuation of government grants and loan guarantees
    the Democrats know that a slice of that will be recycled back to them in donations .
    Hedge fund billionaires who made their fortunes buying and selling coal stocks are putting in the ultimate assured short sell . Fire coal workers and destroy the companies
    with the crushing power of government as your hammer .
