    A proposed seawall to be completed this year. The article doesn't mention who is building it or paying for it....where does Trump come in?
    I very much doubt Trump gives two poops about some little Island community somewhere.  The people who voted for him seemed to actually believe he would make life better for them, not seeing the obvious- that he is an habitual and unrepentant liar.
    The original poster commented Trump. Obviously the article indicated they've had this problem for some time. So I didn't understand the Trump involvement. As far as the seawall being the request now, I understand the OP saying good luck getting help from Trump. It just took me a sec to tie the 2 together. I thought before I read the article there was going to be a quote from Trump.
    I should have explained, and my apologies for not doing so, that I saw a piece on CNN where the reporter interviewed inhabitants of the community. Their town is 4' above sea level. One of the exterior shots was of a house that had a banner on the roof proclaiming 87% of residents voted Trump. They went on to lament that if Trump wants to build a wall, he should build one around their town, yuck, yuck, yuck. Then they went on to plead to please help them. I was struck by the banner on the roof and what Trump represents: climate change denier, slash government funding for every agency that would or could help them and withdrawing from Paris Climate Accord and burning more fossil fuels. Small government Trump doesn't give a shit about your slowly disappearing community never mind the cost of building a wall around your island community. I found it laughable. Elections have consequences.
    Thank you!
    Oh please let it rain today.
    Those that can be trusted can change their mind.

    No sympathy, none at all. Like the way of horse drawn transportation or railroads prior to the interstate highway system, the jobs aren't coming back.

    And even if demand for coal rises and more mines are developed, that won’t necessarily translate to more jobs.

    “If Trump brings back the coal, it’s not going to bring back the jobs,” Jay Apt, an energy policy professor at Carnegie Mellon University, told the Washington Post. “Those jobs are gone, automation has seen to that.”

    In other words, the Acosta mine is not a good bellwether for the coal industry as a whole, or the prospects for coal mining jobs. 


    And that's a BIG if.

    “Donald Trump, if you see this, whatever you can do, we welcome any help you can give us,” Eskridge told CNN. “I love Trump as much as any family member I got.”

    Eskridge got his wish, and the president gave him a call.

    “He said we shouldn’t worry about rising sea levels,” Eskridge told the Post. “He said that ‘your island has been there for hundreds of years, and I believe your island will be there for hundreds more.”

    I'm willing to bet they're forced to leave within 20, maybe sooner. Trump said it'll be great again and remain so for a couple hundred more years so it must be true.
