The Senate Democrats’ obstruction of President Trump’s cabinet nominees has reached a record-setting level. Yesterday, ABC News reported: “President Trump has more unconfirmed Cabinet nominees at this point in his term than all previous presidents combined.” Senate Democrats have failed to a historical magnitude to offer deference to the president, running counter to what they argued for during previous administrations.
From President George Washington to President Barack Obama, “only 10 times has a president’s initial Cabinet nominees remained unconfirmed two weeks into their terms.“ Never in all of American history has this level of obstruction been seen.
ABC NEWS reported on this unprecedented obstruction:
“President Donald Trump has more unconfirmed Cabinet nominees at this point in his term than all previous presidents combined, according to an ABC News analysis of data from the Congressional Research Service. “Since 1789 and before the Trump administration, there have been only 10 times a president’s initial Cabinet nominees remained unconfirmed by the U.S. Senate two weeks into their terms, according to the data. “Eleven of Donald Trump’s Cabinet nominees remain unconfirmed today. Moreover, Trump’s nominees for the Departments of Agriculture, Labor, and Veterans Affairs have yet to have their hearings.”
