Donald Trump, on “indestructible coal,” Charleston, WV (8.21.18):

“In times of war, in times of conflict, you can blow up those windmills, they fall down real quick. You can blow up those pipelines they go like this,” (pulling his arms apart to suggest an explosion). “You’re not going to fix them too fast.

“You can do a lot of things to those solar panels but you know what you can’t hurt? Coal, you can do whatever you want to coal.”
