Should President Trump fire Scott Pruitt? | The Tylt
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt is facing mounting pressure to resign over ballooning scandals involving his lavish spending habits and a shady condo deal with a gas industry lobbyist. Reports suggest the White House is considering firing Pruitt, but President Trump has defended his EPA chief. Pruitt has been one of the most effective cabinet secretaries in terms of rolling back regulations, and many conservatives want him to stay. What do you think?

EPA's Scott Pruitt rented a DC room owned by a gas lobbyist for $50/night, well below value; $120,249 trip to Italy; $40,000 trip to Morocco; $163,000 on first-class, charter & military flights; $43,000 on sound-proof phone booth.

Scott Pruitt approached the White House last month requesting substantial pay raises for two close aides.— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) April 3, 2018

By my count, 5 separate stories have come out in the last couple hours about Scott Pruitt. That doesn't seem like an accident.— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) April 3, 2018
