President Donald Trump is praising Scott Pruitt's work as head of the Environmental Protection Agency — but stressing his concerns as well.

Trump told reporters Friday that Pruitt was doing a "fantastic job running the EPA, which is very overriding." But Trump went on to say three times — "I'm not happy about certain things."

Pruitt is the target of a series of federal investigations into allegations over his first-class travel, security and other issues. Trump did not refer to the allegations specifically. Growing numbers of Republican lawmakers have joined Democrats in blasting the embattled EPA chief over the ethics allegations.
