    "TRUMP, announcing "the start of a new era" in energy: "We will put our miners back to work. ... My administration is putting an end to the war on coal.""


    And Trump has been praised by the Navajo Nation for doing so. This OpEd preceded the praise:

    Washington must help the Navajo Nation prevent the loss of coal jobs | TheHill

    And the AP's own Matt Lee just took the Washington Post to task for its bogus report on Tillerson.

    Temporary work for two years is better than no work I suppose.

    Do you suppose that construction projects are anything but temporary?

    Would you take a steady paycheck for 2 years if you weren't getting one at all?

    That's the nature of the construction industry. The Empire State Building was completed in much less time.

    Bingo!

    The construction of the Keystone Pipeline will provide thousands of good jobs, but it will come to an end eventually.
