I'm not saying that he's blameless, but we'll see what happens", Trump said then, and didn't answer a reporter who asked if Trump was "tired' of Pruitt.

President Donald Trump announced Pruitt's resignation on Twitter. Trump publicly defended Pruitt and praised his job performance as recently as early June.

"I'm not happy about certain things, I'll be honest", Trump told reporters on the North Lawn of the White House. "But I am not happy about it". "But he's done a fantastic job running the EPA, which is very overriding", Trump said.

The former Oklahoma attorney general, who sued the agency more than a dozen times before running it, had been expected to return to electoral politics and run for governor, senator or possibly president.
