Trump Suffers A Massively Embarrassing Defeat As Andrew Puzder Withdraws As Labor Sec Nominee

Source: PoliticusUSA, by Jason Easley

Donald Trump suffered the ultimate humiliation as his Labor Secretary nominee was forced to withdraw his name from consideration after he lacked enough votes for confirmation in the Republican-controlled Senate.


Puzder fit the Trump mode for nominees, as he hated minimum wage laws and labor regulations. Puzder also had a history of sexism and an allegation that he assaulted his ex-wife.


The Puzder rebellion by Democrats and several Republicans is a massive defeat for Trump that comes at a time when there is growing momentum for a bipartisan investigation into the Trump/Russia scandal.

A president who promised to win so much that America would be tired of winning has become one of the biggest losers in presidential history. Trump has lost every case related to his Muslim ban in court, his National Security Adviserís resignation has accelerated a massive political scandal, and now his Labor Secretary nominee doesnít have the votes to be confirmed by a majority Republican Senate.
