Coal is a completely established industry. There are no gobs of jobs coming into something like that. Savings are extracted through greater automation, more done with less. If you want jobs you pivot to the emerging green energy industry. Lots of innovation there. Coal jobs have been declining for decades and Trump will not/cannot reverse that. Sen McConnell has repeatedly blocked Obama from providing aid to coal workers, using them as pawns in a game instead of working to improve their lives. You get what you vote for.
