Republicans To Use “Nuclear Option” To Help President Trump

Senate Republicans Headed To ‘Nuclear Option’ To Confirm Trump Nominees

Henry Rodgers at The Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF)

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell set up a test vote for the Senate on Thursday, hoping to cut Democrats time on the floor obstructing President Donald Trump’s nominees who are trying to be confirmed.

The vote, which is likely to fail so that Republicans will be able to use the nuclear option, will make it easier for Republicans to confirm Trump’s nominees, as Democrats have continued their obstruction in the confirmation process. The nuclear option can be used if  there is a majority vote.

“It is not fair to the American people. The American people deserve the government they elected,” McConnell said. “From an institutional perspective, as well all acknowledge, this is completely unsustainable.”

The Senate already has the power to nominate some of Trump’s appointees with a majority vote. However, McConnell’s proposal would speed up the process, according to Roll Call.

Trump has previously called out Democrats for “slow walking” his executive nominees, saying “Democrats in the Senate are still slow walking hundreds of highly qualified people wanting to come into government,” in a February tweet. “Never been such an abuse in our country’s history.”

The president broke a record for the number of appeals court judge confirmed during the first half of a presidency.
