"We deserve to have somebody at the EPA who actually does protect our environment, someone who believes in climate change and takes it seriously for the benefit of all us, including our children," Mink said to Pruitt. "I would urge you to resign before your scandals push you out." 

And just days after Mink’s encounter with Pruitt, Trump confirmed Pruitt's departure following months of high-profile controversies regarding his spending and ethics at the agency. 

"I have accepted the resignation of Scott Pruitt as the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. Within the Agency Scott has done an outstanding job, and I will always be thankful to him for this," Trump said a tweet announcing the resignation.
