In March Hillary Clinton bragged to supporters at a CNN town hall in Ohio that she’s going to put a lot of coal miners out of work.
Hillary promised to kill coal jobs as part of her economic plan.
She is heartless.
On Saturday Hillary Clinton campaigned in Pennsylvania on her plan to create jobs. She sat down with KDKA’s Jon Delano after her rally to talk jobs.
Delano asked Hillary what she is going to do for coal miners. At first she dodged the question. Then, when pressed, she said coal miners will have to find other work.
KDKA posted the transcript:
Delano: Can we bring back coal jobs as Donald Trump says? Can we bring back steel jobs?
Clinton: Well, we can certainly bring back steel jobs because once we really handle the unfair trade practices that have undercut our steel industry causing layoffs and plant closures, we’re going to make it really clear to the rest of the world we’re not sitting by and watching our steel industry go any further down.
Delano: But what about coal?
Clinton: Coal is a different issue because we’ve got to figure out — is there a technology that can create clean energy from coal?
Clinton wants to invest in research to find clean ways to burn coal — but suggests our mill towns need to look beyond coal.
Clinton: “If we put our minds to it, we’re going to revitalize coal country. Towns that have been knocked flat, we’re going to help them get up. We can do that with infrastructure, with advanced manufacturing. We can do that with clean energy. So I’m excited because there are lots of examples of what’s working. Pittsburgh — look at the way Pittsburgh has reinvented itself. I remember what Pittsburgh looked like 30 years ago, Jon. I was here, and I’m thrilled,” she said.
In other words, Hillary just told coal miners to find other work.
