    Another Donald Trump gut decision goes haywire as coal mines go bankrupt and the existence of communities is threatened.

    Perhaps Donald Trump should visit and throw some rolls of toilet paper to these victims of his gut-wrenching policies. "At two of the world's biggest coal mines, the finances got so bad that their owner couldn't even get toilet paper on credit."

    Donald Trump's rollback of EPA regulations was not enough to save the coal industry.

    The economy of the US is creaking as Donald Trump's gut decisions prove wrong consistently and painfully.

    So you are saying that you Democrats want to open coal mines, and start burning for power?

    Where is that candidate. I'll consider voting for them.

    I'm not sure why the OP is cheering the loss of two coal mines in WY?
    Many coal users are switching from coal to natural gas, its cheaper and cleaner to use, which means more profit.

    What if Solyndra went bankrupt? Solyndra misled the feds out of over $500 million. Why you should care

    Companies come and companies go, WTF??

    So you are trying to move those goal posts once again. Your Gawd Rump promised that he would reopen the coal mines. Instead, they are closing at an alarming rate.

    The Oil Companies are NOT going bankrupt. They are thriving. In fact, they can't seem to pump enough gas and oil.

    The Solar Industry is building at an alarming rate as are the wind factories.

    Tesla just became the premier auto battery manufacturer in the world. And are pushing their industrial battery packs for cities and factories to be used during peak periods.

    Don't it chap your drawers that AOL is more right than wrong and you are more wrong than right? Your Gawd Rump is leading you unto tempation with his deceipt and lies by your own admission.

    The world is changing.

    1. AOL is gone, my drawers are not chapped.
    2. The US economy and stock market are doing very well thank you
    3. I showed you credible links that many companies go bankrupt, that is NOT NEWS, that's business
    4. If coal survives its thanks to Trump, if they don't that's business, no big deal. The dems promised to close them all, what's your point? You should be happy two closed.

    Note to lefties, it might seem like a lifetime but Trump has only been in office for about 2 1/2 years. Wyoming mines are still suffering from policies instituted by the Obama administration. The question is whether it is good news or bad news if Wyoming mines shut down. it seems that lefties are willing to go either way.

    The Dems did NOT claim to want to close them. They stated fact. Lessening the dependency on coal means fewer coal jobs. You claim to be a Economic Powerhouse. Well, that's economics 101. Less demand, less product needed, fewer jobs. It's pretty simple. Or did I type too fast.

    And it IS a big deal. Unless alternative jobs are found for those folks then entire cities and towns are devastated.

    Wait, I thought the coal mining was an 18th century industry and nothing Trump could do would save it,


    and now you are instead saying that something he did, is responsible for it declining?


    You lefties really will say just any shit, that serves your partisan purpose at that second, with out any humanity in you at all.



    SHUT YOUR FACE ANUS.
