THERE IS A REASON WHY PENNSYLVANIA WENT REPUBLICAN IN 2016 …
As reported at Fox News Insider, the first new coal mine has opened during the President Trump presidency in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, just outside of Pittsburgh. Check another one off the list of campaign promises for Trump. Who honestly thinks this ever would have happened had Hillary Clinton been elected? Clinton wanted to put coal miners out of business, much like the previous eight years of Obama. Does anyone really wonder why blue collar Democrats in states like PA, OH and MI voted Republican?
President Trump lauded the opening of the nation’s first new coal mine in recent memory.
Corsa Coal Company will operate the mine in Somerset County, Pa. – outside of Pittsburgh.
Corsa CEO George Dethlefsen said the mine will be a boon to the struggling local economy.
He praised Trump’s easing of regulations and encouragement for fossil fuel exploration.
Dethlefsen told Leland Vittert that for the 70 positions available in the mine, 400 people applied.
“It’s a hard day’s work every day, but it’s worth it,” one miner said.
Vittert said the news contrasts with Hillary Clinton’s message that she would “put a lot of coal miners out of work.”
