WEST DES MOINES, IOWA – A month after launching a TV ad on the scandal-plagued head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the American Future Fund (AFF) applauded the White House for accepting Administrator Scott Pruitt’s resignation from the post.
“Scott Pruitt was an embarrassment to Republicans, and President Trump made the right call by getting rid of him,” said Nick Ryan, AFF’s founder. “The EPA administrator should be someone focused more on the president’s agenda than scoring personal luxuries at the expense of taxpayers. Hopefully, the EPA will now become a true partner to lawmakers working to promote real prosperity in the heartland.”
As reported by The Hill, Administrator Pruitt has spent months dragging down the Republican agenda with seemingly endless controversy around his use of official resources to cushion his own lifestyle. In response, AFF’s ad encouraged President Trump to make use of his old catch phrase, “You’re Fired,” noting that “For the good of the country, Pruitt must go.”
