(CNN)The president of United Mine Workers of America said Wednesday that the coal industry is not “back,” despite President Donald Trump’s claims.

Cecil Roberts said at an event in Washington that his message to Trump and others running for president in 2020 is: “Coal’s not back. Nobody saved the coal industry.” He said coal-fired plants are closing all over the country, calling it a “harsh reality.”
