Trump now wants to give the oil industry a federal bailout after prices crashed.
The oil and gas industry has donated millions to Trump and the Republican Party. Trump has said he does not believe in climate change, despite the overwhelming physical and scientific evidence that proves its existence.
We will never let the great U.S. Oil & Gas Industry down. I have instructed the Secretary of Energy and Secretary of the Treasury to formulate a plan which will make funds available so that these very important companies and jobs will be secured long into the future!
