RESISTING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE: Senate Democrats have decided to obstruct President Donald J. Trump’s Administration, and the American people, by refusing to confirm qualified nominations.
Democrats in the Senate have delayed crucial appointments made by President Trump in an attempt to obstruct the will of the American people and the President’s agenda.
Of the 197 Presidential nominations to agencies, the Senate has only confirmed 48.
Only 2 of President Trump’s 23 judicial nominations have actually been confirmed by the Senate.
Democrats in the Senate have shown they are willing to break irresponsibly with tradition that allows a President to choose his own appointees in a timely fashion.
Less than a month away from the August recess, the Senate has confirmed only 23 percent of President Trump’s 216 nominations.
By the first August recess during President Obama’s first term, the Senate had confirmed 69 percent of his 454 nominations.
