UPDATE: 70 vacant ambassadorships

Yep. It keeps getting worse. Out of 190 Countries in the world. We have 70 vacant ambassadorships.

37% of the world.

Yes, we have had vacancies in past presidencies. 15 in 2003 under Obama. And State Department vacancies were a concern under Obama when he had a Republican Senate and House that worked to delay and stifle his appointments. But, until this month, Trump enjoyed a majority in both houses. And diligent vetting hasn’t been something Trump has spent too much of his time on—to the consternation of members of Congress.
