Trump Discusses Future Of MOX With SC Leaders

(Washington, DC) -- The state's top Republicans appear to be having trouble convincing the president to save a nuclear fuel project in Aiken.

President Trump met yesterday at the White House with Senators Lindsey Graham, Tim Scott, Governor Henry McMaster and others to discuss the MOX program.

The Department of Energy is thinking of abandoning the mixed oxide fuel project, which turns weapons-grade plutonium into fuel used in nuclear reactors.

 Scott says Trump was open to their concerns, but the president did not commit to saving the expensive program.
