Trump tweeted a few minutes ago, slapping the media over their fake news rumors that Sessions is going to be replaced by Pruitt:
Do you believe that the Fake News Media is pushing hard on a story that I am going to replace A.G. Jeff Sessions with EPA Chief Scott Pruitt, who is doing a great job but is TOTALLY under siege? Do people really believe this stuff? So much of the media is dishonest and corrupt!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 6, 2018
It sounds like Trump is giving Pruitt a big thumbs up here, saying he’s doing a great job while being totally under siege.
As you all know, I think most of the media reaction to Pruitt is way over the top, with the exception of the end run around the administration to give his two top aides big salary increases.
Even Ted Cruz and Rand Paul have come to his defense recently:
This is compelling. Why do Obama and his media cronies want so badly to drive @EPAScottPruitt out of office? @realDonaldTrump is too cagey to be duped and bullied by the Obama groupies. https://t.co/USHqDUDECH— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) April 5, 2018
They are putting every little detail of Pruitt’s actions under a microscope to try and oust him, because the EPA is what the Left really cares about. Obama used it to bully companies right out of business, and Pruitt so far is rolling back a lot of what Obama did.
Frankly I’m glad he has Trump’s support. I just hope that doesn’t change as more ‘bad’ headlines pileup.
