Donald Trump is the only President in modern history that has ACTIVELY worked against the very government and its rules he swore to protect and defend….
He has left federal job positions unfilled….
He has ignored advice from within his own executive branch preferring to follow the advice of rightwingnut media celebrities…
And he has worked hard to beatdown opposition from within his own party’s lawmakers…
That he would tend to NOT push for ‘advice and consent’ on his agency and department heads is not really a stretch…
Being a Real Estate guy form New York City?

“I am in no hurry,” Trump told reporters as he departed for Camp David, the U.S. presidential retreat, for meetings on the partial government shutdown.

“I like acting. It gives me more flexibility. Do you understand that? I like acting. So we have a few that are acting. We have a great, great Cabinet,” Trump said. He did not elaborate on why they give him more flexibility.
There are 24 Cabinet-level positions and six are currently filled by individuals who are serving in an acting capacity after the departure of members confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
Other than the White House chief of staff and the vice president, Cabinet-level officials require confirmation by the Senate. Federal law allows presidents to temporarily fill vacancies by appointing acting department heads who are already employees there….
Trump’s failure to fully staff a large amount of government jobs does resemble the Republican playbook effort to shrink government….
The succeeding President after Trump will have a big job of repairing damage that Trumpo has done to the excursive branch of the American government….
