On Monday, President Trump criticized Democrats for “delaying my cabinet picks” on his personal Twitter account.
As of today, only four of his nominees have been confirmed by the U.S. Senate so far, listed below.
Nikki Haley – U.S. Ambassador to United Nations
James Mattis – Secretary, U.S. Department of Defense
Mike Pompeo – CIA Director
John Kelly – Secretary, Department of Homeland Security
On the day President Obama was sworn in his first term, seven of his nominees were confirmed.
From the Daily Caller.
WASHINGTON–Senate Republicans gave newly inaugurated President Obama a smooth transition on his first day at the White House eight years ago, when the party, then in the minority, helped confirm seven of his nominees that day and over five more by the end of the president’s week, but Democrats have no plans to return the favor to Donald Trump.
With a Republican majority currently in the Senate, I still think the other nominees will eventually be confirmed, but the process is clearly being held up compared to Obama’s first day.
What do you think about Trump’s other nominees not being confirmed yet? Comment below to let us know.
