Trump Appears to Have Reversed Position on Yucca Mountain

President Donald Trump on Thursday appeared to reverse his position on a proposal to create a national nuclear waste dump at Yucca Mountain in Nevada after his administration tried for several years to revive the mothballed project. In a tweet on Thursday, Trump said, “Nevada, I hear you on Yucca Mountain and my Administration will RESPECT you! Adam Laxalt, Trump’s Republican re-election campaign chief in Nevada, said he believed the president was expressing support for opponents of the project.
