    US President Donald Trump called on the Senate to confirm the remainder of his Cabinet nominees, the White House said in a press release.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The statement comes as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accused Democrats of delaying the confirmation of the president's cabinet picks.

    “I call on members of the Senate to fulfill their constitutional obligation and swiftly confirm the remainder of my highly qualified cabinet nominees, so that we can get to work on behalf of the American people without further delay,” Trump said in the release on Friday.
