Huffpost: President Donald Trump brushed off concerns that the State Department still has key unfilled jobs, telling Fox News’ Laura Ingraham that he’s the only one who matters.
“We don’t need all the people they want us to get,” Trump said in an interview that aired Thursday night. “Let me tell you ? the one that matters is me. I’m the only one that matters because when it comes to it, that’s what the policy is going to be.”
The president also blamed Senate Democrats for dragging out the approval process for his nominees. While some State Department job picks are waiting for confirmation, more than a dozen top positions remain vacant with no named nominee, according to a Fox News article published last month.
