WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) -- A top White House adviser says democrats are obstructing the president from any progress by slowing the cabinet nomination process.

"The problem is the Senate Democrats… we’ve seen that throughout these several weeks. The Senate Democrats have done everything they can to NOT give the people the government they voted for, but the President keep marching on," Epshteyn said.

On Thursday, Mick Mulvaney was confirmed by a 51-49 vote by the U.S. Senate. Earlier in the week, Dr. David Shulkin was confirmed as VA Secretary and Steven Mnuchin was confirmed as Secretary of the Treasury.

Esphteyn went on to comment about General Michael Flynn's termination and how the White House was running as a well-oiled machine, contrary to media reports.
