In the latest episode of "Last Week Tonight," John Oliver points out President Trump's "affection for mine CEOs," which is often misunderstood as concern for coal workers' jobs and well-being. Near the end of a program dedicated entirely to the coal mining industry and the promises the president has made to coal workers, the HBO show host declares passionately, "Trump needs to stop lying to coal miners. We all do. Stop telling them that their jobs are coming back when they're not. Stop telling them coal is clean when it isn't. And stop pretending that this isn't an industry in the middle of a difficult and painful, albeit necessary, transition."
