Coal CEO hosts Trump fundraiser as industry’s hurdles mount and workers are left behind

President Donald Trump will head to West Virginia on Wednesday to
deliver remarks at a fundraiser hosted by coal baron Bob Murray,
underscoring the close relationship the coal industry has with the White
House even as the industry steadily declines.
The fundraiser comes in the middle of another turbulent month for
coal, with Blackhawk Mining the latest company to file for Chapter 11
bankruptcy.
