I do think it’s hilarious how the media seems shocked and dismayed that Trump is appointing people who disagree with Obama and other Leftists. Uh, guys? That was kind of the point.
US President-elect Donald Trump has chosen an outspoken critic of President Obama’s climate change policies to head the Environmental Protection Agency.
Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, 48, is seen as an ally of the fossil fuel industry.
He has been a key player in legal challenges against EPA regulations on greenhouse gas emissions.
Democrats and environmentalists in the US have expressed dismay, calling Mr Pruitt a climate change denier.
News of Mr Pruitt’s appointment emerged on Wednesday evening. Mr Trump formally confirmed it in a statement on Thursday.
