(Newsweek) – A woman confronted Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt in a Washington, D.C., restaurant on Monday in the latest public confrontation between a member of the public and a Trump administration official.

Teacher Kristin Mink posted the video of the incident on Facebook. While holding her young son, she accused Pruitt of climate change denial and urged him to resign.

"We deserve to have someone at the EPA who actually does protect our environment; someone who actually does believe in climate change and actually takes it seriously for the benefit of all of us, including our children," Mink said.

"So, I would urge you to resign before your scandals push you out," she added.

In the video, Pruitt listened silently as the woman berated him.

In an interview with the New York Post, Mink, a 33-year-old mother from Silver Spring, Maryland, said that she saw Pruitt sitting three tables away as she ate lunch with her family in Washington, D.C.'s Teaism restaurant.

“He had no response, he had no defense, he had no apology, he did no explaining, he did no denying,” she said of Pruitt.

"I had to say something. This man is directly and significantly harming my child’s—and every child’s—health and future," she tweeted Monday. [more]
