In a tweet, President Donald Trumpsaid that Andrew Wheeler, the deputy administrator, will serve as its acting chief.
"I think that Scott Pruitt should have to look at that next generation that he's impacting by how he's making a lot of selfish, stupid decisions on how to spend taxpayer money", Mink said.
The senator was also a supporter of Pruitt, according to the Times, and Wheeler's rise demonstrates the growing influence of a group of former Inhofe staff members across the Trump administration and Washington including Ryan Jackson, who is now the EPA's chief of staff. I have no doubt and complete confidence he will continue the important deregulatory work that Scott Pruitt started while being a good steward of the environment.
"With Scott Pruitt in charge, we can finally unravel the mess of the EPA, and begin developing and implementing thoughtful policies that will make measurable improvements to our natural resources and unleash an energy revolution that will bring jobs and higher wages to Americans". "However the unrelenting attacks on me personally, my family, are unprecedented and have taken a sizable toll on all of us".
Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute who has known Wheeler for years, told Breitbart News that he is up to the job, especially given his past work at the EPA.
Analysts believe Wheeler could be more effective than Pruitt at implementing Trump's deregulatory agenda at the EPA. Among the allegations against Pruitt are his use of first-class air travel and enlisting EPA staff for personal matters, including getting his wife a job at Chick-fil-A.

Trump has praised Pruitt for slashing regulations on the energy and manufacturing industries, including his move to repeal Democratic former President Barack Obama's signature program to cut carbon emissions from power plants, known as the Clean Power Plan.
Mink, a teacher and mom from Silver Spring, called the scandal-plagued Pruitt "the man who's destroying our environment for the next generation".
He also tasked members of his staff with personal assignments, including finding him another apartment, getting his tickets to sporting events and trying to help his wife find a job.
The congressman's office, along with the Safe Climate Caucus he co-chairs, has sent out at least 32 press releases mentioning Pruitt since his nomination to the EPA's top position was announced in December 2016.
He was confirmed by the Senate on February 17, 2017, on a 52-46 vote, the most recorded "no" votes of any EPA administrator.
Pruitt quit the EPA after months of ethics-related scandals related to his behavior and spending practices, CBS News reports.
