    I am utterly terrified of this man and what I know he is capable of doing.

  2. I’m not afraid of this weak,insecure,pathetic excuse for a human being! #Vote 20/20 #Orange is the New Black#Prison

  3. Just like the WALL, all talks and Mexico is not paying for it.

  4. U folks tired of winning yet? The man dosn’t own one redeeming quality.

  5. I have friends in the coal industry. They said they can’t compete with natural gas. The jobs AIN’T coming back.

    Coal miners fell for the con. Hopefully they learned a lesson.

    Everyone knew he couldn’t save the coal industry, well everyone except his cult who will probably fill the comments with cries of “fake news”. He’s leading them to bankruptcy, the only thing he’s actually good at besides spewing continuous lies and misinformation to keep his base paranoid, angry, confused and easily manipulated.

  8. Trying to keep up with Trump’s lies is virtually impossible. It’s like trying to count rain drops during a monsoon downpour.

    • It is even impossible to keep track of all scandals. One is discussed and at least 2 new scandals appear halfweg the discussion.

    • TRUMP a moron get hlm out

    • David J : If you’re interested, The Washington Post has been keeping a running tally, and Politico does a period piece on his current totals. You can Google “running count of Trump’s lies” to find them both (plus a few others).

  9. Clean coal. So clean you can eat off of it. Clean coal. Black Lung.

  10. Donald has actually cut funding for the miner’s medical cost who suffer from black lung. Please die in quiet.

    • That’s a lie

    • @snoop alert
      trolling some more are ya?
      heres another link you wont bother opening
      instead you’ll amaze the world with your stupidity
      Coal Miners’ Fund Set For Deep Cuts As Black Lung Epidemic …

      https://www.npr.org/2018/06/04/616136915

      2018-06-04 · Coal Miners’ Fund Set For Deep Cuts As Black Lung Epidemic Grows A federal trust fund for coal miners who have the deadly disease black lung could run up a $15 billion deficit if a planned funding …

  11. Other reality is raising suicide rate on farmers in the USA.

  12. Don’t worry coal miners the Chinese tariffs will pay for your bills.

  13. When those retired coal miners rode 10 hours in a bus to get to DC, Moscow Mitch spent a whole 60 seconds with them.

    • Many of them will be dead soon and won’t be able to vote so why waste his time ? In fact, he’s trying to speed that up by taking away their health care. And, bonus !, if he succeeds, Republicans won’t have to go on record turning down their pension bailout. They won’t be around to file claims.

    • @Rudy Penza And these dudes mostly have black lung disease.
      Fun fact if you calculate the left and right leaning geezers who die each day and the left and right leaning teens who turn 18 each day, the Dems are picking up a potential 2000 new votes each day. Normally young folk don’t vote much, but Gen Z is the most politically active generation in 50 years when the voting age was 21. Exciting times.

    • @ruth depew

      Power to the people!

  14. Congratulations, coal miners. You played yourselves.

  15. We’re surprise that the bankrupt king failed?

  16. The only ones surprised by this is the coal industry’s djt voters! Maybe they’ll vote smarter this time around. SMH😒

    Trump failed America the first 2 months in office should have been removed and imprisoned.

    I’d say the closure stats are are a success story.
    At least as far as the planet is concerned.

  19. Nobody knew that saving the coal industry could be so complicated…
