Trump threatens to adjourn Congress to install nominees

President Trump on Wednesday threatened to use his executive power to force both chambers of Congress to adjourn if the Senate did not confirm his nominees for vacancies across the administration, he said were necessary for coronavirus response. Trump complained that the Senate Democrats are using the so-called ’pro forma sessions’ to prevent him from making recess appointments.

Trump: “The current practice of leaving town, while conducting phony pro forma sessions, is a dereliction of duty that the American people cannot afford during this crisis” And he’s absolutely right. These people forget that we appoint them and that what they are doing is a civil service. Millions of people are out of work and the economy is tanking...do your job congress.
