Washington (CNN)Scott Pruitt’s flights in first class or via military jets are for security purposes, the Environmental Protection Agency administrator told The New Hampshire Union Leader on Tuesday.
Pruitt said he flew first class from Washington to Boston for his New Hampshire trip Tuesday.
“We live in a very toxic environment politically, particularly around issues of the environment,” Pruitt told the newspaper. “We’ve reached the point where there’s not much civility in the marketplace and it’s created, you know, it’s created some issues and the (security) detail, the level of protection is determined by the level of threat.”
In his interview with the Union Leader, Pruitt said he was “not involved” in the decisions regarding his security and travel.
“Those are all made by the (security) detail, the security assessment in addition to the chief of staff,” Pruitt said during his interview with the New Hampshire Union Leader.
Former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price was scrutinized for his use of private jets on multiple government business trips. He eventually resigned after the department’s inspector general opened an investigation looking into the matter.
