Trump Threatens to Cut EPATrump Threatens to Cut EPA

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Sunday he would cut funding for the US Environmental Protection Agency. “Environmental Protection,” Trump said on Fox News Sunday after host Christ Wallace asked if there were any federal departments he would cut, Bloomberg reported. “What they do is a disgrace. Every week they come out with new regulations. They’re making it impossible.” Wallace then interjected that the EPA’s job was to protect the environment. “We’ll be fine with the environment,” Trump responded. “We can leave a little bit, but you can’t destroy businesses.” Trump also said he would cut funding for the US Department of Education.  The controversial real estate mogul-turned-Republican presidential candidate is leading the latest GOP polls.
