"Climate leadership and the transition to renewable energy will come from the local and state level, and we must continue to pressure elected officials around the country to commit to a transition to a clean energy future, starting now". However, according to a report in the Washington Post, energy experts expressed disappointment at Trump's plans and additionally, he did not furnish a lot of details regarding some of the steps.

The United States will work on bringing back nuclear energy and expanding its role in providing electricity for the country, US President Donald Trump said in a speech at the Department of Energy on Thursday.

While the president will be speaking regarding energy policy, much of the focus on Thursday has been on the president's statements in which he criticized MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, saying she has a "low I.Q".

President Donald Trump took a break from talking about energy Thursday to blast CNN as "fake news". Jon Tester, D-Mont., said he is reviewing the proposal and encourages people to contact his office with their thoughts on how to balance natural resource development and protection of the state's clean air and water.

"It was fake", Trump said.

USA natural gas exports to Mexico have helped the country ease its reliance on fuel oil and coal for electricity. We are a top producer of petroleum and the number one producer of natural gas. And he said the pipeline to Mexico would go "right under" his proposed border wall.

Over the years, manufacturers have produced the innovative new technologies that have allowed us to harness new sources of energy-and to improve our sustainability and make our energy use more efficient.

The Interior Department is rewriting a five-year drilling plan established by the Obama administration, with an eye toward opening areas in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans that now are off-limits to drilling.

As the administration celebrated a self-proclaimed "energy week", Trump said more steps are needed to "unleash" domestic reserves and remove government regulations that could prevent the US from achieving global dominance in energy.

During his meeting with a group of energy leaders in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, Trump told them that the USA was becoming more and more energy-dominant. Jack Gerard, chief executive of the American Petroleum Institute, said it was "critical" that the U.S. developed offshore oil and gas along all of its coastlines.

Crude oil exports were permitted under measures enacted by Trump's predecessor.

"Ukraine already tells us they need millions and millions of metric tons (of coal)", he said.
