Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Seriously put the original post above is nothing more than naive wishful thinking.

None of the professional trade publications (that would have excellent advance knowledge due long lead times in infrastructure projects) have nothing on this supposed turn of US energy policy. Subsequently this is nothing more than an empty promise at best or outright lie at worst.

Real professionals describe US increase in nuclear power and coal because they are strongly favoured by major energy industries. Similarly oil production in US will be beefed up due political pressures towards it.

Minor changes might be introduced to renewable energy policies, possibly even token new incentives but nothing signals actual changes of policies.
