President Donald Trump blasted Democrats for “slow walking” his selected nominees confirmation process in a serious of tweets Thursday afternoon.

Trump’s tweets come as a majority of Democrats have continued to vote against all of Trump’s nominees for executive agencies — most recently, Trump’s pick for Secretary of State, current CIA Director Mike Pompeo, who is currently going through his confirmation process.

“It would take 9 years” for all of his nominees to get approved if Democrats continue “obstructing good (hopefully great) people wanting to give up a big portion of their life to work for our Government,” the president said.

“Hopefully the Senate will not leave Washington until our Ambassadors, Judges and the people who make Washington work are approved,” Trump said. “The Democrats are Obstructing the process and we need these people approved for the good of our Country!”

Trump pressured the U.S. Senate Wednesday to confirm Pompeo after Paul announced he would vote against him.
