Outrage As Trump Makes Another Strategic Appointment

By Ikenga Chronicles December 8, 2016

US  President-elect Donald Trump has on Thursday made another strategic appointment by appointing Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, to head the Environmental Protection Agency.

In a statement issued by Trump he said “For too long, the Environmental Protection Agency has spent taxpayer dollars on an out-of-control anti-energy agenda that has destroyed millions of jobs, while also undermining our incredible farmers and many other businesses and industries at every turn.”

Adding he said: ‘’Pruitt will reverse this trend and restore the EPA’s essential mission of keeping our air and our water clean and safe.”

“My administration strongly believes in environmental protection, and Scott Pruitt will be a powerful advocate for that mission while promoting jobs, safety and opportunity.”

The appointment has sparked major outrage by opponents who however said Pruitt is anything but an environmental advocate.

They described Pruitt as a spectacularly poor choice to lead the fight to protect America’s natural resources.

“Scott Pruitt has spent the past several years fighting tooth and nail to help polluters erase or circumvent the critical environmental protections our nation has put in place” said Steny Hoyer, the number two Democrat in the House of Representatives.
