Is Michael Bloomberg trying to make Donald Trump president again? You have to wonder after the New York billionaire last month launched a supposedly philanthropic climate campaign called Beyond Petrochemicals. Their goal is to shut down more than 120 planned US petrochemical projects. Is destroying tens of thousands of good-paying jobs Mr. Bloomberg’s idea of charity?
Hillary ClintonTrump’s slip of the tongue at a town hall in March 2016 that “we’re going to put a lot of miners and coal companies out of business” ignited Trump’s base. It wasn’t just coastal liberal elites who came for their guns; they too were fighting for their jobs. Mr. Bloomberg is now reminding Trump voters that destroying the coal industry was just the beginning.
