Donald Trump Blamed Slow Pace of Nomination Process on Senate Democrats

Type: Misleading StatementsJul 11 2017 Severity:
Targeted: 115th Senate Democrats
President Trump attempted to shift the blame on the slow pace of presidential nominee confirmations solely to Senate Democrats: "The Senate Democrats have only confirmed 48 of 197 Presidential Nominees. They can't win so all they do is slow things down & obstruct!". In reality this is misleading as several nominees could be confirmed without the need for any Senate Democrat approval whatsoever.
