No one cracks the whip quite like Trump can. Many of us worried if he would as tough as president as he was as a candidate. We were ecstatic when we realized he was holding back during the campaign.
Not since Ronaldo Maximus and Newt and the Contract For America have we had real leadership in our party and that’s what is needed to succeed. He’s got cojones the size of basketballs. He used his weekly radio slot to take on the resistance in the Senate who hold up nominations for a year or more.
The Hill reported:
In his weekly address, Trump blamed Democrats for slow-walking many of his nominees through the confirmation process, saying that Senate Democrats had “shamelessly obstructed” hundreds of qualified picks.
“Senate Democrats call it ‘the resistance,’ ” he said.
“From day one, Senate Democrats have shamelessly obstructed, stalled, and filibustered the confirmations of hundreds of talented men and women who are eager to come to Washington, D.C., to make a difference,” he said. “They want to serve our country.”
Trump also blasted the party’s opposition to his hard-line demands on border security and immigration. He said that Democrats were withholding support for his policies because the party is “afraid it’s going to make me and the Republicans look good.”
“They have blocked every effort to close deadly loopholes, to keep out vicious criminals, and to stop the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs,” Trump said. “They are a disaster at the border.”
He is absolutely right. How can Trump run the government properly if he can’t even hire competent managers to run or help run the various departments? There is something he could do and not only would it succeed, but Democrats might even give up slow walking nominations.
Start transferring managers from the areas Democrats love and transfer them to areas involving national security responsibilities.
