Pennsylvania Coal Miners JUST Got INCREDIBLE News After 8 Years Of Obama’s Failed Policies

Barack Obama set out to destroy America’s coal industry, and he was nearly successful after eight years of non-stop efforts.

In total, hundreds of coal mines were shut down and thousands of coal miners were put out of work. On the campaign trail, Hillary Clinton’s best solution for the problem was government assistance for the unemployed miners, but thankfully she didn’t win the election.

Instead, we now have a President Trump, and under his leadership the coal industry is making a comeback. According to the Daily Caller, a new coal mine is opening in Western PA, which gives an upshot of hope to the downtrodden coal miners, who were all but devastated by the horrific policies of Obama.

More from the Caller:

The Acosta Deep coal mine will create 70 to 100 direct full-time jobs and another 500 indirect jobs, according to Corsa Coal, the company building the mine. The site is expected to produce 400,000 tons of coal a year, mostly for U.S. and Chinese steel companies.

“The opening of the Acosta Deep Mine marks a return to coal industry job creation in Somerset County, Pennsylvania,” Corsa Coal officials said in a statement. “Metallurgical prices have risen to record levels on the strength of strong steel demand and supply scarcity.”

The Acosta mine is the first of four new coal mines slated to open up this year as coking coal prices continue to soar. The price of coking coal, which is used in steel making, doubled in the last year because of supply disruptions in Australia and Chinese policies to curb some coal-fired energy production.

In addition to the increased demand for American steel at home, China began halting shipments of coal from North Korea and accepting them from America after meeting with President Trump, which will also increase demand and create a need for more jobs in the coal industry.

President Trump had promised coal miners that he would look out for them if they put him into office, and it appears as if he’s doing exactly that.
