Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt said President Donald Trump's policy changes will have an impact for decades, The Hill is reporting.

"This is a transformational time," he told the Faith and Freedom Coalition's annual Road to Majority conference. "There are certain times in history that when you're living in them you recognize that what's happening is going to impact generations into the future.

"We must embrace, we must advance, we must make change."

Pruitt touted the administration's deregulatory agenda, including rollbacks on Obama administration rules on climate change, water pollution and air pollution.

"These are examples of us choosing to make sure that regulatory authority, once again, is not used to pick winners and losers," he said.

"This administration recognizes that private property ownership and the states matter, and that they care about air quality and water quality. And that we can advance this jobs agenda at the same time that we improve the environment by engaging in partnership, as opposed to adversity."

Meanwhile, Pruitt is caught up in a string of ethics controversies, Politico noted. 

Trump, before leaving for the G7 meeting in Canada said: "Scott Pruitt is doing a great job within the walls of the EPA. Outside he's being attacked very viciously by the press. I'm not saying he's blameless."
