The Trump Administration

The Senate has a vital constitutional role, to advise and consent on the president’s Cabinet and other Executive Branch appointments, and to act as a constitutional check on Executive power. Senator Leahy has always taken these responsibilities seriously.

Senator Leahy has heard from countless concerned Vermonters about President Trump’s actions and nominations.  From a blanket ban on entire nationalities facing horrific violence and devastation – fomenting fear, confusion and needless disruptions in the lives of countless families -- to the Cabinet nominations of Senator Sessions and Betsy DeVos, among others, Senator Leahy shares these concerns with many Vermonters. 

Here you can find news about the administration’s actions, and Senator Leahy’s responses and actions.  If you have an opinion about these or other issues as the new administration goes forward, please feel free to contact Senator Leahy here.
