According to The Guardian, Robert Murray, CEO of Murray Energy, the country’s largest private coal company, is telling Republican President Donald Trump to go easy on the talk of mining jobs ever returning.
“Trump pledged to bring back coal jobs during his presidential bid and repeated those promises last week. ‘As we speak, we are preparing new executive actions to save our coal industry and to save our wonderful coalminers from continuing to be put out of work. The miners are coming back,’ Trump told a rally in Louisville, Kentucky.”
“I suggested that he temper his expectations. Those are my exact words,” said Murray. “He can’t bring them back.”
