Scott Pruitt Resigns; Trump” ‘Scott Has Done An Outstanding Job’

Saagar Enjeti | White House Correspondent

President Donald Trump accepted the resignation of Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt Thursday, with his deputy Andrew Wheeler taking over for the agency.

Pruitt has been embroiled in a series of scandals regarding his tenure at the EPA including his misuse of office to benefit himself personally, mistreating staff, and a host of embarrassing stories about his personal conduct which have besieged the administration.

Pruitt survived the litany of scandals for so long because of his close relationship with Trump who was pleased with the job he was doing at the EPA. The outgoing administrator undid several Obama administration regulations which the president believes is responsible for much of the economic growth seen during his administration.

    I’m sorry to see what would have been a promising career, and a benefit to all American Citizens, be caught up in a greed related scandal. Better he resign now than be forced out of his position.
