Trump's Position On Yucca Mountain Leaves Political Mess Of Nuclear Proportions

Having narrowly lost the Battle Born state in the 2016, President Donald Trump is seeking to woo Nevada voters.

He's doing it by abandoning the GOP’s decades of support for storing the nation’s nuclear waste under a mountain northwest of Las Vegas.

According to Politico, it's a move that could drag the White House into an unsolvable political stalemate.

Trump announced the turnabout in a tweet this month.

Nevada, I hear you on Yucca Mountain and my Administration will RESPECT you!

President Donald Trump America needs to find a new place to store the 90,000 metric tons of nuclear plant leftovers stranded at 120 temporary storage sites.

The impasse is on course to cost taxpayers tens of billions of dollars.
