(David Jackson, USA Today) – President Trump held his first Cabinet meeting Monday, but he put the emphasis on four prospective members.
“We have four empty seats, which is a terrible thing,” Trump said.
He added: “Because the Senate Democrats are continuing to obstruct the confirmation of our nominees for the Department of Labor, the Department of Agriculture, the director of national intelligence and the United States Trade Representative, somebody I want very badly. … The main victim of this very partisan obstruction is the American public.”
