It is evident that President Trump has been shaking things up in Washington D.C ever since his election. Democrats have been doing everything possible to undermine Trump and his policies, throughout this time, but they are now scrambling after the recent leaks from Wikileaks and Obama’s associates. A recent resignation that just hit Trump couldn’t have been better news.
Mustafa Ali, the leader of the Environmental Protection Agency’s environmental justice program, resigned on Thursday. The resignation is believed to have been triggered by the realization that his sham of an agency is losing funding after reports emerged that Trump is considering slashing the EPA’s $8 billion budget by $2 billion and also cut their beefy staff by 20 percent. This is what he had to say on his resignation;
The Freedom Daily reports:
“I never saw in the past a concerted effort to roll back the positive steps that many, many people have worked on though all the previous administrations. … I can’t be a part of anything that would hurt those [disadvantaged] communities. I just couldn’t sign off on those types of things,” said Ali, who has held his post since 1992.
“I hadn’t seen any positive movement in relationship to vulnerable communities … I hadn’t seen yet any engagement with communities with environmental justice concerns,” he added.
Although Mustafa should have been fired immediately after the Michigan water crisis, he was allowed to stay on. Despite the horrible conditions people were subjected to, Obama did nothing. Cutting funding to this absurd agency is truly a step in the right direction
