On Tuesday, The New York Times reported that President Donald Trump’s EPA secretary, Scott Pruitt, had “almost no meetings with environmental groups or consumer or public health advocates.” This in the same report that acknowledged Pruitt personally met with representatives from quite a few such organizations.

“The truth is: EPA has met with over 25 consumer protection, public health and environmental groups,” EPA spokesman Jahan Wilcox told PJ Media in a statement Tuesday. “Additionally, Administrator Pruitt has been praised by the Galveston Bay Foundation and Texas Health and Environment Alliance for his work on cleaning up toxic Superfund sites.”

Indeed, community activists praised Pruitt for coming in person and pledging to clean up the Dioxin dump known as the San Jacinto River Waste Pits in the area of Houston affected by Hurricane Harvey. “He said he would expedite the decision,” Scott Jones of the Galveston Bay Foundation told Fox 26. “We think that’s great.
