At least one employee at the Environmental Protection Agency downloaded the app "Boycott Trump" on a government phone.
Employees are also using dating apps, playing Candy Crush, and watching Netflix on their taxpayer-funded phones, according to a new report by Cause of Action Institute, a nonprofit oversight group.
Documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request inquiring about employees use of Signal, an encrypted text messaging app, revealed EPA employees are using their government-issued phones for far more than government business.
One anti-Trump employee downloaded the Boycott Trump app, which was created by the Democratic Coalition Against Trump, the "home of The Resistance to Donald Trump and his agenda."
The app alerts users to businesses that are connected to the Trump organization, so they can avoid their services.
"Make Trump and his allies pay, literally, for their hateful rhetoric and regressive policies. Use consumer action to take a stand for what's right!" a description of the app states.
Opposition to Trump has been common at the EPA, with union members holding "resistance" signs at an anti-Trump rally last year. Last summer, EPA bureaucrats were still crying at their desks over Trump's victory.
