WASHINGTON, April 3 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump called embattled Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt on Monday night with a reassuring message, an administration official said on Tuesday. “Scott, keep your head up. Keep fighting. We’ve got your back,” Trump told Pruitt, according to the official.
