President Trump’s outspoken support for coal has finally come to fruition with the nations first new coal mine in recent memory. Corsa Coal Company just opened the mine in Somerset County, Pa. just outside of Pittsburgh. Corsa CEO said the mine will be a boon to the struggling local economy.
He praised Trump’s easing of regulations and encouragement for fossil fuel exploration.
Dethlefsen told Leland Vittert that for the 70 positions available in the mine, 400 people applied.
“It’s a hard day’s work every day, but it’s worth it,” one miner said.
So the first coal mine has been opened in Pennsylvania under Donald Trump creating many jobs and the media is completely silent. #MAGA🇺🇸👊
