LEX­ING­TON, Ky. – Ken­tucky has fewer coal jobs to­day than when Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump took of­fice two years ago, de­spite his prom­ises to rein­vig­o­rate the coal in­dus­try.

The Lex­ing­ton Her­ald-Leader re­ports coal em­ploy­ment av­er­aged 6,550 in Ken­tucky in the first quar­ter of 2017 when Trump was sworn in. The es­ti­mated av­er­age in the July-through-Septem­ber quar­ter this year was 6,381. That’s ac­cord­ing to the state En­ergy and En­vi­ron­ment Cabi­net.
