A state university professor suggested Friday that Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke favors Americans based on race, religion and the potential to increase fuel consumption.

Zinke posted a gym photo on Twitter Friday of him exercising on an elliptical. In the photo, he is wearing a shirt that says, “I stand for the flag. I kneel for the cross.” The caption read, “I’d rather run on the @NationalMallNPS but the @Interior gym’s elliptical is better on the old knees.”

Michael Leroy Oberg teaches History at the State University of New York at Geneseo (SUNY Geneseo). He runs a blog and wrote “Native America: A History,” a textbook on the history of America’s indigenous people. He responded to Zinke in a later-deleted tweet suggesting that the Interior secretary may be the next to leave the administration after former-Environmental Protections Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt resigned Thursday.

“@SecretaryZinke stands for white people, Christianity and his corporate overlords. He would dig for coal in his mother’s spleen if he thought he could extract something he could burn for fuel. Pruitt’s gone. Will Zinke be next?” Oberg’s tweet stated.
