Some large US companies have criticized those segments of Trump's policies that prompted major public outcry, like climate change or immigration.
China is now the de facto leader on climate change now that the US has pulled back-something that the country's officials have no problem noting.
China is the largest emitter of greenhouse gases responsible for global warming, followed by the United States, and Chinese leaders firmly agree climate change is a real threat.
"Granite Staters know that protecting our environment while building a stronger, more affordable energy future is critical for our families and our businesses".
"What I think is important to remember about those cost overruns is that they didn't really have much to do - if at all - with the technology of carbon capture", says John Thompson, director of the Fossil Transition Project at the Clean Air Task Force, an environmental advocacy group.
Just as Trump demonstrated a lack of knowledge, negotiating skills and general competency in the dramatic failure of Trumpcare last week, so too will this executive order ultimately act to undermine the administration.

After the Benghazi massacre, which left four Americans, including a USA ambassador, dead, Rice was paraded around the TV shows. It's hardly out of the ordinary for a White House official like Rice, with high security clearances, to request unmasking.
House sends bill to Trump blocking online privacy regulation

"EPA looked at the scientific record, which only gets more robust, and found that, indeed, greenhouse gas emissions endanger public health and welfare", said Emily Hammond, a George Washington University Law School professor. "No matter how other countries' policies on climate change change, as a responsible large developing country, China's resolve, aims and policy moves in dealing with climate change will not change", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said this week. The Trump Administration may not restore coal to its glory days but at least it is not waging war on a hallowed American industry, the best coal miners in the world, and the communities where they live. "You're going back to work", he told the miners. "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive", he said in a 2012 tweet.
Kelly said the lack of consistency poses an economic challenges to the energy companies. The moratorium on the leasing of federally controlled coal was created to keep America's largest source of coal firmly in the ground. This is what Justin Trudeau acknowledged when he said earlier this year that the oilsands would eventually - that is, probably, over the very long term - have to be phased out.
Robert Murray, chairman of Murray Energy - the nation's largest coal producer with mines in West Virginia, Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky and Utah - embraced Trump's decision.
"I suggested that he temper his expectations".
"The oil field is over a mile deep and is a formation that's held hydrocarbons for millions of years", says David Greeson, vice president for development at NRG Energy. "Even if you brought back demand for coal, you wouldn't bring back the same number of workers".
"Trump's bid to reverse climate agenda puts pressure on Ottawa", declared the Globe and Mail headline, as talk shows across the country put pundits in chairs to debate the question: Should Trudeau slow down Canada's own climate agenda to avoid becoming uncompetitive with the U.S.? NPR reports that the solar industry now employs twice as many Americans as the coal industry.
