Democrats have been blocking Trump’s cabinet picks in any way possible. In typical liberal style, they have demonizing every aspect of every Trump action.
As reported by Allen West:
As Senate Democrats do everything in their power to stop or at least delay confirmation of President Trump’s cabinet nominees, one key nominee just made the Democrats’ job a bit easier.
Yesterday, Vincent Viola, Trump’s pick for Secretary of the Army withdrew his name from consideration.
Per The Military Times, President Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the Army abruptly withdrew his name from consideration late Friday night, citing his inability to get around strict Defense Department rules concerning his family businesses.
Vincent Viola, founder of digital stock trading firm Virtu Financial and owner of the National Hockey League’s Florida Panthers, had been working through the confirmation process to become Army Secretary since mid-December.
In a statement, Viola said he was “deeply honored” to be nominated for the post, but concluded that he would not be able to successfully navigate the confirmation process.
“I appreciate the confidence President Trump showed in me,” he said. “I offer my continued support for President Trump and his administration, and look forward to redoubling my efforts to support the Army and its veterans as private citizens.”
Sources familiar said Viola had been looking for ways to divest from his businesses — including ownership of the hockey team — to take the top civilian Army post.
He had planned to transfer ownership to other family members but turn over operations responsibilities to the team’s vice chairman, but that arrangement did not meet Pentagon requirements, according to sources.
Hmm…we here at allenbwest.com can think of someone who might be right for that job…of course we’re biased.
