President Trump is growing increasingly frustrated with waiting for the approval of his full Cabinet.
He said as much on Twitter Friday morning.
“It is so pathetic that the [Democrats] have still not approved my full Cabinet,” he vented.
But there’s some positive news for the president.
According to The Hill, Trump only has two remaining Cabinet appointees who have yet to face a confirmation hearing. Their hearings have not been scheduled by Republican leadership.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) announced Thursday that the Senate had voted to confirm the remaining appointees who had already gone through hearings.
FiveThirtyEight provided a list of the longest Cabinet confirmation periods since former President Jimmy Carter entered office in 1977.
Former President Obama topped the list when it took Congress 161 days to approve former Attorney General Loretta Lynch. FiveThirtyEight also concluded that Obama waited the longest amount of time out of any modern president to have members of his Cabinet confirmed:
Obama nominees hold the top three spots on the waiting list. And Obama has had to wait longer, on average, than any other president in the data set for his nominees to join his Cabinet: Confirmed Obama nominees have waited for an average of 35 days. George W. Bush’s waited for an average of 16 days, Bill Clinton’s for 16 days, George H.W. Bush’s for 21 days, Ronald Reagan’s for 13 days and Jimmy Carter’s for six.
Trump has not even hit the first half of his first 100 days in office.
