President Trump told the world that waiting for his Cabinet to be approved took longer than ever before because of obstructionism from people who are determined to oppose Trump no matter what. When he said so, the MSM went nuts and tried to call him out for being wrong. The problem is, he was absolutely right.
As confirmed by the Washington Post fact checkers: Never before in US history has a President’s Cabinet appointments been so heavily blocked (but eventually voted trough with a majority?!?!?). This shows that those in government are more interested in scoring points over Trump than the interests of the American people.
If the Dems (and some Republicans) keep getting in the way of a Democratically elected President, then they are enemies of the State. They are putting their next election hopes above the safe governance of the nation.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
“The median wait between nomination and Senate vote for Trump was 25 days,” WaPo reporter Glen Kessler wrote. “By contrast, Obama’s nominees faced a median wait of two days, George W. Bush had a median wait of zero days and Bill Clinton had a median wait of one day.”
Kessler also noted that Trump’s nominees faced an unprecedented number of votes to end debate, also known as cloture votes, which can “gum up the works with arcane procedural delays.”
“Here’s a striking statistic: Fourteen of Trump’s Cabinet nominees faced a vote to end debate, even though six ultimately achieved 60 or more votes,” Kessler added. “In other words, 14 of Trump’s Cabinet nominees faced a cloture vote, compared to 11 for all previous presidents combined.”
