Trump Tells EPA Chief Scott Pruitt: ‘We’ve Got Your Back’
President Donald Trump told Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt that “we’ve got your back” in a call Tuesday morning, two administration officials told the Associated Press. Trump also told Pruitt to “keep his head up” and said that the White House supported him, according to the report. Chief of Staff John Kelly reportedly called Pruitt on Tuesday and reiterated Trump’s sentiments. Pruitt has been under intense scrutiny for his $50-a-night Capitol Hill rental, which was owned by the wife of an environmental lobbyist.
