Senate Democrats have been holding up President Trump’s nominees for Cabinet positions. This is keeping Obama-appointed holdouts working for the Trump Administration. It’s all being done for political reasons in an attempt to cause political damage to the President. But, Trump isn’t standing for it.
After acting Attorney General Sally Yates ordered the Justice Department to ignore Trump’s temporary refugee ban, Trump fired the Obama appointee in a stinging statement that highlights her bias and incompetence.
As they hold up Trump’s Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions’s appointment, Democrats are up in arms over the Obama appointee being fired. But, this is simply political theater as you can see in the video below. The Attorney General works for the Trump Administration and this was an order Yates was refusing to carry out. She just got shown the door a few days earlier since she refused to do her job.
Senate Republicans should be speeding up this process. They have enough votes to confirm the President’s nominees and should do so. Democrats have organized and flooded Senator’s offices with phone calls. This is slowing up the process as some are worried about their next meal ticket rather than doing what they need to do to get the government in order.
You can ask your senators to vote for President Trump’s nominees by calling the Senate switchboard at (202) 224-3121 or sending an email.
Our new President isn’t a lifelong politician. He wants the federal government to run at the speed of business rather than the slug speed of Capitol Hill. It’s time these senators step up to the plate and do their jobs confirming these nominees.
