Trump to tout ‘energy dominance’ at new plastics plant

  • Resident Donald Trump is taking a break from his August vacation on Tuesday to visit a Pennsylvania petrochemical plant, where he is expected to hail the facility as a prime example of his administration’s success in securing US “energy dominance and manufacturing revival,” an agenda provided by the White House states.
  • The Trump administration has long supported expanding domestic production of petroleum and natural gas, including loosening Obama-era regulations.
  • While Trump has moved away from calling climate change a hoax perpetuated by the Chinese to admitting that “something’s changing and it’ll change back again,” it’s not likely that the President sees moving away from the oil and natural gas industry as part of the solution.
