President Donald Trump on Tuesday has accused Senate Democrats for obstructing and failing to confirm his nominees.

"The Senate Democrats have only confirmed 48 of 197 Presidential Nominees," Trump tweeted.

"They can't win so all they do is slow things down & obstruct!"

His tweet on Tuesday came after Trump shared a report from "Fox & Friends" that said the White House "calls out Senate Democrats for obstructing nominees."

Democrats countered that the administration has only itself to blame for the slow pace of filling vacancies.

Trump has failed to fill hundreds of vacant jobs. As Congress is scheduled to leave for August recess further delaying Trump's administration appointments.

Trump also retweeted a video of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who urged the Senate on Tuesday morning to stay in D.C. until more work can get done. Trump's agenda of healthcare, tax, and infrastructure reforms remain unfinished.
