U.S. EPA chief Pruitt's ethics issues have raised concerns -White House

ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE, May 10 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump is pleased with the job Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt is doing but allegations of ethical missteps “have raised some concerns,” a White House spokesman said on Thursday.

The White House is hopeful Pruitt will be able to answer the concerns, spokesman Raj Shah told reporters aboard Air Force One en route to Elkhart, Indiana.

Pruitt has been under fire for potential ethics lapses, including flying first class, excessive spending on security, and the rental of a room in a Washington condominium owned by the wife of an energy lobbyist. (Reporting by James Oliphant; Writing by Eric Beech; Editing by David Alexander)
