Senate Democrats have decided to obstruct President Donald J. Trump’s Administration, and the American people, by refusing to confirm qualified nominations. In an effort to prevent the President from following through on the policies for which the American people voted, Senate Democrats are putting his nominations through time-consuming parliamentary procedures not seen by the previous Administration.

In a pursuit to obstruct the will of the American people and the President’s agenda, Senate Democrats have delayed crucial appointments made by President Trump. The blatant obstruction of President Trump’s nominations threatens key aspects of the Government, including national security, by leaving positions vacant.

Senate Democrats have shown they are willing to break irresponsibly with tradition that allows a President to choose his own appointees in a timely fashion. President Trump has nominated qualified individuals to key positions, but their confirmations have been delayed by obstructionism in the Senate.

This attempt by Senate Democrats to hamstring President Trump’s agenda is most negatively affecting the American people. It is time to shift the focus back to the public, and allow the President’s vision for a better America to stand without hindrance from obstructionists.
