After idling his company in 2014, during the Obama era, an Alabama coal miner is back in business thanks to the Trump administration.
Veteran coal miner, Randy Johnson recently reopened RJR Mining Company, Inc. in Cullman, Ala. after President Donald Trump put an end to the Obama administration’s “war on coal.”
“This will be the largest capital investment we have ever made,”Johnson, an RJR shareholder said in a letter sent to President Trump. “We will provide more jobs than we ever have. You have restored our confidence, our excitement, and our desire to stay involved.”
Recently, The Atlantic wrote a piece about the revival of the mine, and on Tuesday Trump took to Twitter to share the piece with his followers.

The Alabama Republican Party was quick to notice Trump’s tweet and thank him for all of his support in the Yellowhammer State.
Thank you, President @realDonaldTrump!
