"The president feels, though, as Scott Pruitt has done a really good job at deregulating the government to allow for a thriving economy; that's important to him".
Pruitt's deputy, Andrew Wheeler, will be the new acting chief of the EPA, the president said.

Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik, of NY, said it's "time for new leadership at the EPA" after the resignation. "But Mr. Pruitt's brazen abuse of his position for his own personal gain has been absolutely astounding, rivaled only by the silence of far too many in Congress and in the White House who allowed Mr. Pruitt's unethical, and at times, possibly illegal behavior to go unchecked", the DE senator said in a lengthy statement.
