(The Hill) Brett Samuels 02/17/19 08:18 AM President Trump on Sunday called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to keep senators in Washington D.C. until a backlog of executive nominees receive confirmation votes. Trump blamed Democrats for slow walking hundreds of highly qualified people wanting to come into government. Never been such an abuse in our countrys history he tweeted. Mitch should not let Senate go home until all are approved. We need our Ambassadors and all others NOW! McConnells office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The Senate will not be in session this week. Trump has previously lashed out at Democrats over the Senates inability to quickly confirm his nominees though senators from the party have noted that ambassador positions require a simple majority and therefore dont need their votes for confirmation. Democrats have also pointed out that Trump failed to put forward nominees for a number of ambassadorships and other positions until well into his presidency.
