AEA Praises Trump’s SOTU Speech and America’s Energy Comeback

White House must urge Congress to fix our broken, abused, misused and outdated environmental laws.


WASHINGTON DC (February 4, 2020) – Thomas Pyle, President of the American Energy Alliance, issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s third State of the Union address:

“In terms of great comebacks, it’s impossible to overlook the American energy story. From reliance on unstable foreign regimes, and a President who said ‘we can’t just drill our way to lower gas prices,’ to becoming the number one producer of natural gas and oil in the world, we now have a President who has kept his promise to end the war on affordable and reliable energy.”

“Even coal exports are on the rise, which means America is in the driver’s seat in terms of the global political landscape. By reducing unnecessary red tape and embracing our homegrown energy production, President Trump deserves recognition for this success. The American energy renaissance is truly a comeback story and one that carries huge benefits for working class Americans.”

“But this comeback story is far from over. In order to achieve true energy dominance and unlock our nation’s full potential, President Trump must have the courage to do what Congress has failed to do for decades. In the next year and beyond, President Trump must provide Congress with a blueprint to fix our broken, abused, misused and outdated environmental laws. Whether it’s prioritizing efficiencies at EPA, improving the leasing process on federal lands, or modernizing bedrock laws like the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Air Act, and the Clean Water Act, we know that President Trump is bold enough to stand up to the Green New Deal Democrats and the perennial prophets of doom on the left.”
