The American Future Fund, a conservative nonprofit group, released an ad calling for Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt to step down.

"For the good of the country, Pruitt must go," a narrator says in the video. "EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is embarrassing President (Donald) Trump. The ethical lapses are disturbing.

"Scott Pruittt is a swamp monster. Mr. President, you know what to do," the narrator in the video said, then cut to a clip of Trump appearing on his NBC show saying, 'You're fired.'"

"He's the head of the EPA, not the Sultan of Brunei," said American Future Fund founder Nick Ryan. "An EPA chief with no credibility can't get the job done," Ryan said in a statement, The Washington Post reported.

The ad will air in South Dakota and Nebraska, timed with Pruitt's trip to Kansas and those two states for meetings with farmers, the newspaper reported.

The American Future Fund usually pursues Democrats, but has gone after the GOP, such as in February 2016, when it released three ads in which Trump University students blast the then-future president, the report said.

Pruitt has been under fire after reports that his aides cost taxpayers at least $90,000 over a two-week stretch in June.

He also directed his schedule to contact the restaurant Chik-Fil-A about his wife buying a franchise.
