Trump has threatened to end environmental protection and the Environmental Protection Agency, and has said the EPA’s budget will be cut to the bone in order to fund his proposed border wall with Mexico.
On Monday, the president tweeted: I am ending environmental protection at the EPA.
I will end the EPA and the EIA, and end the ridiculous regulation of the environment.
As president, I will end this agency and its overreach.
It will be called “the Environmental Protection Authority” in his own words.
Trump also tweeted on Tuesday: EPA will be the largest in history and will be drastically reduced.
The EPA will be reduced to the size of a school.
He continued to attack the agency on Tuesday.
They can’t do their job, they cannot do their homework, they are overregulated, they have no respect for the law, they take the money from corporations, they don’t treat the public with respect.
Now I will take over the EPA from the bureaucrats, I am doing that.
I am the one that will be taking over.
The EPA is a disaster, a fraud, a failure, a disaster.
It should be abolished and replaced by a government-controlled, state-run agency.

I have the authority.
