President Trump says Democrats are intentionally slowing down the appointment confirmation process.
In a tweet on Sunday, the President claimed Senate Democrats are “slow walking” hundreds of qualified people wanting to enter government.
Democrats in the Senate are still slow walking hundreds of highly qualified people wanting to come into government. Never been such an abuse in our country’s history. Mitch should not let Senate go home until all are approved. We need our Ambassadors and all others NOW!
