The president-elect has long pushed for coal to play a central role in the American economy, and the president-Elect is set to make a major push in that direction in his first year.
In his first 100 days in office, Trump plans to increase coal production to more than 1.6 million megawatts (MW) and the use of natural gas to nearly 1.5 million MW, according to a list compiled by The Hill.
The coal industry is already struggling as the nation struggles with an energy crisis and coal is a significant contributor to the cost of electricity.
Trump has vowed to revive coal, and he is likely to continue the push.
Trump also plans to revive mining and coal mining, and said he wants to create more jobs in mining.
He is expected to nominate for coal secretary of state and secretary of the Interior John Sullivan, a former mining lobbyist who has worked in the industry for decades.
Sullivan is a longtime advocate for the coal mining industry, and Trump is likely hoping to name someone with his background to help lead the transition.
