Robert Murray, CEO of the Murray Energy Company, said the clean energy “routine” of Hillary Clinton is “all about money.”
“She’s getting millions of dollars of campaign contributions from the [J.B.] Pritzkers, the [Warren] Buffetts…the [Elon] Musks, who are making billions of dollars manufacturing windmills in China, manufacturing solar panels in China, but getting a four cent-a-kilowatt hour tax credit from the government. She wants to continue that, they want to continue that,” Murray said during an interview on the FOX Business Network.
A Clinton Presidency and more regulations, he cautioned, would continue to harm the coal industry, consumers and the economy.
“That couple on fixed-income depends on reliable, low-cost electricity. So does the manufacturer of every product in America.”
Murray has been a longtime vocal advocate for the coal industry following a string of bankruptcies including the largest, Peabody Energy, earlier this year.
“As the coal industry is destroyed, so will reliable, low-cost electricity in America. People are not going to wake up though until they freeze in the dark,” he warned.
