President Donald Trump relived Hillary Clinton’s 2016 anti-coal comments during a tax reform roundtable in West Virginia on Thursday.


“Let me suggest something everybody in this room — and every West Virginian — knows, and that is you’re a man keeping your promises,” West Virginia Republican Rep. Evan Jenkins posed to POTUS. “I was a proud early supporter of your candidacy.”

“You made a promise to the people of West Virginia to end the war on coal,” he continued. “You referenced the campaign — remember, your opponent said she was gonna put a lot of coal miners out of work.” (RELATED: Trump Battles His Fiercest Enemy Yet During Trip To West Virginia – The Wind [PHOTOS])

“Until she got here,” chimed in Trump, earning raucous applause from the audience. “That didn’t work. Right?”

“She came here and tried to say, ‘No, did I ever say that?’ That was not a good day.” (RELATED: Clinton Mocks The ‘Coal People’ In West Virginia, Kentucky For Supporting Trump)
