Donald Trump wants to do away with with a federal agency that is nonexistent.

When asked by Fox host Sean Hannity if he would eliminate any federal departments as President, Trump responded “largely, we can eliminate the Department of Education,” a common refrain among conservatives.

But he went on: “Department of Environmental, I mean, the DEP is killing us environmentally, it’s just killing our businesses.”

Trump was likely referring to the Environmental Protection Agency, but his campaign did not respond to a TPM inquiry about what agency he meant to invoke.
