The American people elected Donald Trump to erase Barack Obama’s disastrous legacy.
But Obama figured his policies were entrenched, thanks to the help of the Deep State and rogue judges.
And now Obama is going to lose his mind when he finds out what Trump just did.
Nowhere has Trump made a bigger impact than in rolling back Obama’s job-killing, Soviet-style command and control environment regulations.
Trump campaigned on bringing back the coal industry and he stayed true to his word.
He withdrew from Obama’s Paris Global Warming accords.
Trump rolled back Obama’s clean power plant initiative.
And he just announced eliminating a burdensome Obama-era regulation that strangled coal plants.
The Daily Caller reports:
The Trump administration is reportedly preparing to give the coal industry a boost by rolling back another Obama-era environmental regulation.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on Thursday is expected to rescind a rule that requires new coal plants to be fitted with carbon capture technology, according to several officials who spoke with The New York Times. Under the Obama-era mandate, new coal plants were not allowed to emit more than 1,400 pounds of carbon dioxide per megawatt-hour. The Trump administration is due to raise this limit to 1,900 pounds.
“It’s fantastic that the Trump EPA is repealing the Obama EPA’s ban on new coal-fired power plants,” Junkscience.com publisher Steve Milloy said in May when The Daily Caller News Foundation exclusively reported the administration’s mumblings of the rule rescission.
Americans in coal states like West Virginia, Ohio and parts of Pennsylvania cheered this decision.
They finally have a President that looks out for their interests as opposed to those of the global, cosmopolitan elite.
That was certainly not the case in the Obama years.
Obama tried to put them out of work.
Now, Trump made restoring industry a central plank in his “Make America Great Again” agenda.
