Trump just won a huge victory that left liberals fuming

Chuck Schumer and the Democrats made their bet that obstructing Donald Trump’s nominees would grind the administration to a halt.

Personnel is policy and with key positions sitting empty while the Democrats gummed up the confirmation process, Trump was left without a team to implement his agenda.

But that all changed when Trump just won a huge victory that left the liberals fuming.

The Senate confirmed CIA Director Mike Pompeo by a 57-42 vote on Thursday.

Pompeo was Trump’s choice to replace the fired Rex Tillerson and he had already secretly traveled to North Korea to lay the groundwork for the Trump-Kim Jong Un summit.

Democrats failed to stop Pompeo and Republicans blasted their obstructionism after the vote.

Breitbart reports:

“After the vote, Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), the Senate majority whip, blasted Democrats who voted against Pompeo and for delaying the confirmation of a number of Trump appointees.

“The man has what it takes for the job. That’s why the no votes from our Democratic colleagues rang hollow,” he said.

He said Democrats were attempting to “lash out at President Trump,” which he called “disappointing” and a “sad break from tradition.”

“It’s a sorry continuation of the hyper-partisanship they’ve been engaging in,” he added, noting that one year ago, 14 Democrats and one Independent had voted to confirm Pompeo as CIA director.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) has said he opposed Pompeo’s nomination based on his gay marriage views, despite his 2008 endorsement of then-Sen. Barack Obama, who had the same views.”

Confirming Pompeo was a victory for Trump over obstructionist Democrats.

The Democrats have been squeezing every hour of the 30 hours of debate on nominees and that has stalled the confirmation process.

Trump stated he believed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should keep the Senate in session seven days a week in order to confirm executive branch and judicial nominees.

    Because they know they will never get elected again. The only reason they are in Congress or any political job for that matter is to get rich and have power over others. I forget the old saying about power and corruption but it certainly is true. Something like Power corrupts and absolute power absolutely corrupts.

    The Democrats are Americans. Why are they trying to destroy our President and his wonderful accomplishments for ALL Americans?

    To me the demon rats are only thinking of themselves. It is really getting to where I hate watch the news anymore as these people are so darn disgusting, but then on the other hand, I want to keep up with what is going on.

  5. If this is what it takes to get the President’s agenda accomplished then that’s what has to be done. There is too much obfuscating. You the senate and the congress were elected by ‘we the people’ to get the job done. Do your job!

    If you want to be able to lie to the gov. And the law and get away with it then become a politiacn. They are all or most anyway are nothing more than liers, l don’t see why anyone would continue voting the known liers into any office and expect any truth to come out of thier mouths, maybe it’s time for a good shake up in DC. And the people need to drain the swamp by force if nessasary.

    Agree with every one of you! The Demonorats think they have the 2018 midterms in the bag and are convinced they have already won. We upset them handily in 2016 and we NEED that same show of force this year! Just because we don’t rant and rave on and on like they do, doesn’t mean we don’t have one hell of a powerful election voice!! Let’s show them again, we are NOT COMPLACENT, we are NOT WEAK, we will NOT BACK DOWN, and they CAN NOT BEAT US!! MAGA 2016, 2018, 2020 & 2022!!
