Trump has already had his share of disagreements with the Environmental Protection Agency. Considering his opinion on climate change (you know, there is none, what are you talking about?), it's no wonder that Donald Trump might be sacking many of the climate change staff at the Environmental Protection Agency.

But now also Florida Republican congressman Matt Gaetz has expressed his radical opinion on the topic. He wants to eliminate EPA entirely with his proposed bill HR 861. The bill would "translate to a smooth transition in oversight and regulations from the federal government to individual states."

The exact details of the bill haven't been announced the the public and the text of the bill is not yet available.

Trump has previously said he would cut EPA's budget significantly. And there's no surprise there, considering his statement about climate change is that "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive."

While Trump would probably disagree with everything here, that's exactly what he did. Of course, he would probably say that he didn't fire anyone, but Sessions submitted his resignation letter himself. Which is true, but we all know how things like this are being done. He would also probably say that Session wasn't sent away because of the probe but because he was doing bad job in general. And, of course, he would most definitely lie about his own lies.
