President Trump says EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt resigns

Kristin Mink the mother of a 2-year-old said she

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is the latest Trump administration Cabinet official to be ousted or abruptly leave, after his resignation was accepted Thursday by President Donald Trump.

"Administrator Pruitt always welcomes input from Americans, whether they agree or disagree with the decisions being made at EPA", Ferguson said in a statement to USA Today. He's also been held to task for exorbitant spending of taxpayer money.

Previous allegations have involved reports that Pruitt used his position and government resources to try to get his wife a Chick-fil-A franchise, a used mattress from a Trump hotel, and a deal on a room rental from a Washington lobbyist couple.

Pruitt reportedly did not reimburse the scheduler, and Ryan Jackson, Pruitt's chief of staff, "literally pulled six 100 dollar bills out of his wallet and gave it", Chmielewski said during an MSNBC interview. Some 170 lawmakers signed a resolution calling for Pruitt to resign. In the following months the scandals have kept on stacking up, but in the last few days there's been some real doozies.

Mario Hezonja agrees to sign with New York Knicks
I want to be a part of it, New York, New York! In his first year, he played 79 games, logging in 17.9 minutes per contest. As reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN , Hezonja chose the Knicks among several teams who tried to recruit him.

"We deserve to have someone at the EPA who actually does protect our environment; someone who actually does believe in climate change and actually takes it seriously for the benefit of all of us, including our children", Mink said.

Pruitt had become a constant source of embarrassment to a president who had entered Washington promising to "Drain the Swamp". Pruitt defended himself against numerous allegations, saying that people are creating controversy because they are against his and the administration's agenda at EPA. Mitchell, a longtime friend of Pruitt's, said in a recent op-ed that she had volunteered her time to find Marlyn Pruitt employment. He sought repeals of major Obama-era regulations like the Clean Power Plan and the Waters of the US, or WOTUS, rule while arguing EPA needed to go "back to basics" with a focus on cleaning up toxic waste sites under the Superfund program and boosting water infrastructure to combat lead poisoning.

He was just one of a number of whistle-blowers at the EPA to raise the alarm about Mr Pruitt's behavior to Congress, where many Republicans now appear to be losing their patience with the environment chief.
