A controversial environment chief in the Trump administration has said he has no intention of leaving his post after a US district court judge deemed his tenure and ongoing occupation of the position illegal.

William Perry Pendley, head of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), said this week that the judge's ruling "has no impact, no impact whatsoever".

"I have the support of the president," he told the Wyoming Powell Tribune. "I have the support of the secretary of the interior and my job is to get out and get things done to accomplish what the president wants to do."
