While President Trump is working at breakneck speed signing executive orders and making massive changes across the federal government, one thing stands out: he’s doing it all alone, without key players able to join him.
The numbers don’t lie and one thing is for sure, the day Trump started his presidency he began with fewer cabinet confirmations than any other president in the last 30 years.
Yesterday, Trump was still waiting on 10 of his 15 cabinet members to be confirmed. By this same time in 2001, President George W. Bush had his entire cabinet confirmed and on Feb 8, 2009, President Obama was just three short of filling his entire team.

Looking at numbers provided by Congress.gov and other leading government publications, Senate GOP leaders claim that President Trump has the fewest cabinet secretaries confirmed by this time since George Washington.
White House press secretary, Sean Spicer recently stated, “It’s time for Senate Democrats to stop playing political games with the core functions of government, and to allow President Trump’s unquestionably qualified and talented group of Cabinet nominees to get to work on behalf of the American people.”
President Trump is certainly disgruntled, as shown in this tweet on Tuesday.
It is a disgrace that my full Cabinet is still not in place, the longest such delay in the history of our country. Obstruction by Democrats!
