Coal closures

In his inauguration speech, Trump pledged that workers will not be forgotten. Even prior to the pandemic, Pennsylvania blue-collar and manufacturing job growth under Trump was among the lowest in the nation. Look around the area, coal has not come roaring back as Trump promised. The number of coal related jobs has decreased and, over the last three years, there were many coal company bankruptcies across the nation. Just another Trump promise made and promise broken.
