Trump breaks his promises to coal industry 

Murray Energy CEO Robert Murray claims he told Trump that without the White House invoking an obscure emergency order to protect coal-fired power plants, he would have to lay off more than 6,500 miners.

…The Trump administration ultimately rejected invoking the emergency order, deeming it an unnecessary response. 

Trump has long been considered the “savior” of the coal industry, although Paul Waldman writes for The Week that “the truth is that … coal jobs were mostly lost to automation and aren’t coming back.” 

Trump accused of breaking promise to coal industry CEO

You would think a CEO would better at simple logic and reason. If you buy snake oil, you get bit. Simple as that.
