President Donald Trump closed out 2018 with a Twitter rant against Democrats for not approving his nominees to be ambassadors.
Specifically, Trump attacked the minority leader in the Senate, Democrat Chuck Schumer, despite the fact Republicans, led by Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), control the chamber.
"Heads of countries are calling wanting to know why Senator Schumer is not approving their otherwise approved Ambassadors!?" Trump claimed. "Likewise in Government lawyers and others are being delayed at a record pace!"
Trump said "360 great and hardworking people" were "waiting for approval from Senator Schumer."
"These are people who have been approved by committees and all others, yet Schumer continues to hold them back from serving their Country!" he claimed.
"Very Unfair!" he added.
