Trump accuses Dems of slow-walking 'hundreds' of nominations

President Trump on Wednesday accused Senate Democrats of blocking and slow-walking “hundreds” of nominations of ambassadors and judges, saying the resulting situation is the “worst in U.S. history!”

Trump has repeatedly blasted Democrats for blocking his nominees, particularly former U.S. spokesman at the U.N. Richard Grenell, whom Trump has tapped for Ambassador to Germany.

On Tuesday Trump said that many important positions are “unfilled because of this obstruction.”

He has tapped CIA Director Mike Pompeo to replace him, and current Deputy Director Gina Haspel to replace Pompeo.

“Half of President Trump's nominees are still waiting for confirmation in the Senate.”
