Reader Opinion: A duty to lead


There are 38 ambassadors and 256 key posts for which the president hasn’t been nominated anyone, and there’s a law requiring him to do so within 300 days. Overall more than 1,200 federal positions that require Senate confirmation have gone unfilled after more than three years into this presidency. These positions could have been filled before this president got himself caught in the impeachment fiasco. Mr. President, you are not the chosen one and it takes a strong team of great people to lead. The above figures were taken from the January 2020 edition of the American Legion magazine.
