    Well, It is cleaner and cheaper.

    Cleaner and cheaper natural gas, propelled especially by the shale boom in the U.S., has stepped to the fore. While coal and gas both emit global-warming-inducing carbon dioxide, gas puts out half as much as coal. Last year, gas used in utility plants cost as low as $16 per megawatt hour (a million watts generated continuously over an hour) compared to some $22 for coal. Mining and shipping coal is simply more expensive.

    Actually no, it’s not different. Every economic metric has been on the same unchanging upward trend since 2010.

    Meh, I showed the change in manufacturing jobs which IS different than Obama's increase in service industry jobs which are often only part time.

    And I corrected you. Job creation overall is down under trump. Every economic metric has remained unchanged under trump.

    As usual, the facts show your claims to be bullshit. Overall job creation is down under trump, compared to Obama.
