During his first official White House briefing Monday, Trump’s press secretary rebuked Democrats for “playing political games.”

“It’s time for Senate Democrats to stop playing political games with the core functions of government, and to allow President Trump’s unquestionably qualified and talented group of Cabinet nominees to get to work on behalf of the American people,” Spicer said.

He pointed out that when Barack Obama was inaugurated in 2009, seven of his picks were confirmed while Trump has two confirmed.
