Media Silent About What Happened to Coal Industry in Trump’s First Months in Office

Of course the media wouldn’t report this.

Despite all President Donald Trump has accomplished during his presidency so far, the liberal media has chosen to focus almost exclusively on allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government in the 2016 election.

The media has been particularly quiet on Trump’s economic accomplishments — coal, specifically. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, coal exports have increased dramatically over the past six months, with exports from the first quarter of 2017 a whopping 58 percent higher than the first quarter of 2016.

Even better, the EIA anticipates that this trend to continue and predict that a vastly higher amount of coal will be exported in 2017 compared to 2016.

“EIA expects growth in coal exports to slow in the coming months, with total 2017 exports forecast at 72 MMst, 11 MMst (19%) higher than the 2016 level,” the report stated.

The increase in coal exports means coal miners can continue to be employed. For them, this is a dream come true — but of course the liberal media won’t talk about that.

After all, why would they ever want to admit that Trump is keeping his promise and helping Americans when they could spend their time wildly speculating about Russia?

The Daily Caller reported that this increase in coal exports is also fueled by an increase in demand for coal overseas, partially due to the shifting political climate.

China is no longer using North Korean coal, increasing its demand. Similarly, Japan is moving away from nuclear energy, increasing its demand for coal.

While Trump may not be entirely responsible for the increase in coal exports (after all, he didn’t cause the Fukushima nuclear meltdown), his promise to not regulate the coal industry to death has allowed them to increase exports and give coal miners work.

If Hillary Clinton had won the presidency, she likely would be in the process of moving heaven and earth to have the coal industry shut down.
