The Trump Administration is kicking off another policy-themed week this week, this time emphasizing the American energy industry. The President will be promoting America’sgrowing oil, gas, and renewable energy sectors.
The U.S. is close to becoming a net energy exporter, and increasing energy production was an important part of President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
President Trump has already reversed several Obama-era orders that have hobbled the energy sectors, such as a moratorium on new coal leases on federal lands.
Trump is also expected to promote new technology for nuclear reactors and wind and solar power.
American leaders have been advocating “energy independence” for years, but President Trump wants to change this to an idea of “energy dominance”– where America not only supplies its own domestic energy supply, but can bring an abundance of energy to the global market.
Energy analyst Kevin Book said of this new move:
“Trump is reorienting our national rhetoric toward ‘dominance.’ Captives crave independence; competitors strive to dominate. It’s a shift from getting by to getting ahead.”
President Trump will be doing events that promote his new energy agenda throughout the week. Of particular interest will be a speech at the Department of Energy on Thursday, which will touch on the benefits of energy exports- strengthening American alliances, economy, and overall global influence.
More events will be announced throughout the week- so stay tuned. Watch out for when he says “energy dominance”- this signals a big, exciting change for America! And share this 1 million times so everyone can see how President Trump is promoting American energy!
