Coal Mines Closing At A Faster Rate Under Pres. Trump Than Obama

As a candidate, Donald Trump promised to revive the coal industry. 

However, across America, more and more coal-fired smokestacks are smoke free.

The power plants beneath them are cold and dark.

The mines that once fed them; abandoned.

But for the past couple of years, miners and their families let themselves believe that a coal comeback was on the way, thanks to promises from Trump.

"He's trying to get their votes. He isn't telling them the truth," coal mining consultant Art Sullivan told CNN.

For 52 years, Sullivan worked in, and consulted on, mines around the world and he bristles every time he hears the president claim to be the savior of coal.
