White House to Senate: Quit Blocking Our Nominees — Hold a Vote on Richard Grenell!
After a year in office half of President Trump’s nominees are still waiting for confirmation in the US Senate.
Mitch McConnell can vote anytime on the nominees. But Mitch won’t do it because he is required to use 30 hours of floor debate to force a vote.
In the private sector if you don’t get your work done during the week you hold overtime.
In the public sector they go to a fancy dinner.
This is outrageous.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders highlighted Richard Grenell who is the Trump nominee for Ambassador to Germany.
Richard has been waiting for months for his confirmation by the US Senate.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders: Half of President Trump’s nominees are still waiting for confirmation in the Senate. The obstruction is so out of control even some senate Democrats believe it’s inappropriate. Senator Amy Klobacher, a senator from Minnesota, said, “I don’t believe we should be holding nominees hostage. Enough is enough.” We need people who are qualified to fill these important positions in our government. in the coming days we will be highlighting specific nominees who as the senator said, are being held hostage by Senator Schumer. Take for instance, Ric Grenell, the president’s nominee to serve as the ambassador to Germany. Mr. Grenell, a Harvard educated experienced diplomat was the longest serving US spokesperson at the United Nations. He was nominated last year. He was reported out of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee with bi-partisan support. He is waiting to represent America’s interests and be our country’s top voice in a G7 country. In short Senator Schumer’s hyper-political delay on Mr. Grenell puts our national security and America’s foreign policy in jeopardy.

We need all conservatives to start pressuring Mitch McConnell to do his job.
The White House just said “confirm Ric”. What is Mitch waiting for?
He can call the vote anytime. He doesn’t do it because he is required to use 30 hrs of floor debate In order to force a vote. But he should do it.
Dems can’t stop a vote from being scheduled.
It’s time for McConnell to get to work.
