Trump announces intention to sell millions of tons of coal to Ukraine

President of the United States Donald Trump is ready to sell "millions and millions of tons of coal" to Ukraine.

Trump announced his plans to export coal to Ukraine. "Ukraine already tells us they need millions and millions of metric tons (of coal)," Trump said at an event at the Department of Energy, Reuters reports.

"Right now, there are many other places that need it too and we want to sell it to them and to everyone else all over the globe who need it," he added.

The US President also announced the "golden age" of the country's energy business and announced his intention to increase the exports of natural gas, oil and coal to the markets of Eastern Europe and Asia.

"We will export American energy all around the world," Trump said.

Trump plans to promote U.S. LNG exports at a meeting next week in Warsaw with a dozen leaders from central and eastern Europe, a region heavily reliant on Russian supplies.
