ABC: Trump Has More Unconfirmed Cabinet Nominees At This Point In His Term Than All Previous Presidents Combined

ROBERTS: “As we know, President Trump also facing that showdown on capitol hill. He has more unconfirmed cabinet nominees at the two-week mark than all former U.S. presidents combined. So let’s go to our congressional correspondent Mary Bruce on Capitol Hill with the latest. Good morning, Mary.”

BRUCE: “Good morning, Robin. Well, Tom Price, Trump’s pick for HHS secretary continues to be dogged by concerns about conflicts of interest. The latest this morning, a ‘USA Today’ report that he purchased $15,000 of stock in a health care company before introducing legislation that would have helped that same company. Now, Price has responded to previous concerns about his stock saying they were made by an outside investor without his knowledge. But that has not stopped Democrats from trying to delay his confirmation over these concerns. They even boycotted a committee vote earlier this week but to no avail. Price is still headed for confirmation.”

ROBERTS: “Yes, a lot of concern there and there also seems to be a pretty close call with Betsy DeVos, of course, the nominee for secretary of education.”

BRUCE: “Yeah, Robin, Betsy DeVos this morning is right on the brink. Senators are here bright and early. They just voted on a measure to move forward with her nomination but there’s been a big push up here to try and block her. You’ve been able to hear the phones up here ringing off the hook. senators on both sides of the aisle have been flooded with calls from constituents voicing concerns about DeVos but it doesn’t seem it’s going to work. Ultimately they counted the votes and even though two Republicans have said they will oppose her it appears Republicans will have the votes to get her confirmed. That vote coming up on Monday.”
