WHITE HOUSE – U.S. President Donald Trump is threatening to adjourn Congress because lawmakers have not approved his candidates for senior posts in his administration, including his nominee to run the independent agency overseeing the Voice of America. 

“I have very strong power,” Trump declared Wednesday, referencing language in the second article of the U.S. Constitution that allows a president “on extraordinary occasions” to adjourn either or both chambers of Congress. 

“The Senate should either fulfill its duty and vote on my nominees or it should formally adjourn so I can make recess appointments,” Trump said. “We have a tremendous number of people that have to come into government. And now more so than ever before because of the virus and the problem.”

The Constitution requires nominees to a number of senior administration posts to be confirmed by a majority vote in the Senate. However, on occasions when Congress is not in session, the president may make a “recess appointment,” which expires if the candidate has not been confirmed by the end of the next full session.

No president has ever exercised the specific authority to dissolve Congress in Article II, Section 3 [1] of the Constitution.

“Perhaps it’s never been done before, nobody’s even sure if it has,” Trump said during a Rose Garden briefing on the coronavirus pandemic. “But we’re going to do it. We need these people here. We need people for this crisis, and we don’t want to play any more political games.” … more
