In July of 2017, Lovell praised the pro-coal stance of the Trump Administration:

“You turn on the TV, and you know Trump and his administration is being attacked a lot. That may be putting it mildly,” Lovell said. “But from the coal perspective, well, I’ve told people this, I didn’t care as long as they put (Neil) Gorsuch on the Supreme Court and then put (Scott) Pruitt in the EPA; we would just call it done.”
