The Senate just voted to confirm Donald Trump’s pick to head the Department of Education, Betsy DeVos.

Vice President Mike Pence had to come in to break the 50-50 vote, confirming DeVos.

President Trump faced a ton of opposition for nominating DeVos. Not only did Democrats fight to stop her, even some moderate Republicans fought to stop the nomination.

DeVos is an outspoken advocate for charter schools and school choice. It’s not surprising Democrats opposed her. They’re in bed with the teacher unions, and want kids to stay in failing public schools.

But for some Republicans to make this vote razor-thin is unforgivable.

Watch the video below to see more on the confirmation:

I’m glad DeVos has been confirmed. She’s the right lady for the job. That’s why President Trump nominated her in the first place.

Democrat obstruction of Trump’s nominees is getting out of control. Hopefully Republicans will put their differences aside and unite behind the president’s nominees!

Share if you’re tired of Democrats throwing temper tantrums and blocking Trump’s cabinet appointments!
