“The Democrats continue to obstruct the confirmations” of administration nominees, President Donald J. Trump wrote in a late Sunday morning tweet.

After tweeting about a “fake” article in the New York Times and media reporting lapses, he lashed out at Democrats, saying they are obstructing key nominees including those for the State Department and for U.S. Ambassadors.

He wrote: The Democrats continue to Obstruct the confirmation of hundreds of good and talented people who are needed to run our government…A record in U.S. history. State Department, Ambassadors and many others are being slow walked. Senate must approve NOW!
