Hillary Clinton Tells Unemployed Coal Miner She Is Sorry For Saying She Wanted “Put A Lot Of Coal Miners” Out Of Business

Hillary Clinton was confronted by an unemployed coal miner at a roundtable event in West Virginia last night for promising to “put a lot of coal miners” out of business. At a CNN town hall in March Clinton declared “we are going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” “I just want to know how you can say you’re going to put a lot of coal miners out of jobs and then come in here and tell us how you’re going to be our friend. Because those people out there don’t see this as a friend,” the man said. “I don’t know how to explain it other than what I said was totally out of context from what I meant because I have been talking about helping Coal Country for a very long time and I did put out a plan last summer,” Clinton responded. “It was a misstatement because what I was saying is that the way things are going now we are going to continue to lose jobs,” Clinton explained. “What I said was that is going to happen unless we take action to try to help and prevent it.”
