“From George Washington to Barack Obama, this level of obstruction has never been seen in the United States Senate. Not only are Senate Democrats holding up highly qualified cabinet nominees, they are doing a disservice to more than two hundred years of American history.” – Nathan Brand, American Rising Squared
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.”
