Did President Trump bring back the coal industry? Not really based on this graph. While coal production has seen an uptick compared to 2016, coal production in the United States still remains at a level below production levels seen in 2012, 2013, 2014. Relatively inexpensive gas and the permanent retirement of many coal plants means coal will "never be great again".
