U.S. President Donald Trump says he has accepted the resignation of
scandal-plagued Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott
Pruitt.

Pruitt had become a constant source of embarrassment to a president
who had entered Washington promising to "drain the swamp."

EPA chief Scott Pruitt faces new federal ethics investigations

EPA chief Scott Pruitt sought used Trump hotel mattress: aide

Pruitt has faced an array of ethical questions about his travel
spending, security costs, dealings with industry lobbyists and misuse
of government resources.

He had denied wrongdoing in the face of multiple congressional and
oversight inquiries.

Despite the scandals, Trump has been approving of Pruitt's efforts to
reduce regulations that the administration says curb business growth.
Trump writes on Twitter, "Within the Agency Scott has done an
outstanding job."

Activists have argued those cuts have endangered the environment.

Trump tweets that deputy administrator Andrew Wheeler will assume the
acting administrator position Monday."
