Obstructionist Democrats will give no votes in committee for Mike Pompeo
President Trump is extremely frustrated with obstructionist Democrats this morning. The Senate Foreign Relations committee is set to vote against the Presidents Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo with all 10 Democrats and Republican Rand Paul being no votes.
To put the vote in perspective Mike Pompeo was first in his class at West Point and first in his class at Harvard Law. Pompeo was confirmed in January as Director of the CIA with a full Senate vote 66-32.
President Trump says this morning, “Hard to believe Obstructionist (Democrats) May vote against Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State. The Dems will not approve hundreds of good people, including the Ambassador to Germany. They are maxing out the time on approval process for all, never happened before. Need more Republicans!

The President is absolutely correct we need more Republicans. Because the obstructionist democrats have made clear that they are not going to support the President on any issue or nominee. John Kerry (who will tell anyone who will listen served in Vietnam) was approved for Secretary of State by a 94-3 vote. And he was a horrendous Secretary of State. Crooked Hillary Clinton was confirmed 94-2 and the crown jewel of her term was letting four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens die in Benghazi.
The confirmations have been so ridiculous that Senator Cory Booker who is setting himself up as a 2020 Presidential candidate grilled Pompeo on his opinions on homosexuals. What the hell does this have to do with being Secretary of State? The obstructionist democrats continue to dig their own graves. They are proving over and over they are not working for the American people. They are self serving obstructionist.
