Democrats’ blockade of Trump imperils national security, congressional recess


Recommended Posts


President Trump may cancel Congress‘ summer recess and demand that lawmakers stick around through August to force Democrats to confirm more of his nominees, the White House said Monday, throwing down a challenge to senators who have tried to obstruct him at nearly every turn.
Democrats have mounted filibusters on 90 percent of the president’s picks that have reached the Senate floor — much higher than the 10 percent rate that Republicans mounted for President Obama’s, the White House said.
Republicans said it is the worst treatment of any president’s nominees in modern political history.
“The president has every right to call Congress back if necessary,” said Marc Short, the White House director of legislative affairs.
The blockade began the day Mr. Trump took office and has continued for the ensuing six months.:snip:
