President Trump has gained a crucial endorsement from a labor union in the critical swing-state of Pennsylvania.
The union, Boilermakers Local 154 has announced that it has endorsed President Trump over challenger Joe Biden who the group says has a vendetta against the oil and gas industry.
According to Town Hall:
A labor union in a major swing-state threw their support behind President Trump’s re-election on Monday. Boilmakers Local 154, based out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, represents over 2,500 active and retired energy workers.
The group recognized Joe Biden’s vendetta against oil and natural gas, as the former vice president said he would ban fracking during the presidential primary.
“As the United States continues to lead the world in oil and natural gas production it is imperative that we continue to battle over-regulations in the fossil fuel industries and fight for American energy production. My members and their families are dependent on these industries and it is imperative that we continue to develop new opportunities and energy infrastructure in America,” wrote John Hughes, the union’s business manager. “Boilermaker jobs specifically rely on coal-fired power generation and we strongly encourage the advancement of Carbon Capture technologies which can secure future jobs for our members. It is with great honor that I write this letter to endorse your campaign as you run for re-election of the President of the United States.”
American energy independence is a pillar of President Trump’s first term in office; the United States remains the number one producer of both oil and natural gas. The administration’s deregulatory actions managed to unleash the energy sector, create jobs and lower costs for consumers.
Joe Biden has revealed a $2 Trillion dollar climate plan that looks almost identical to The Green New Deal introduced by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The plan would be especially detrimental to the oil and gas industry and would likely cost thousands of jobs.
