U.S. Political Leadership In 2017

THE TRANSFER OF POWER AND LEADERSHIP EFFECTIVE JANUARY 20, 2017

THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT

August 10th 2017
45th President says “NO MORE” to North Korea's Nuclear Missile quest
"They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen"
“North Korea has "been doing this to our country for a long time, for many years, and it's about time that somebody stuck up for the people of this country and for the people of other countries”.
The Question...What’s Next? 

                                                                       WILL AMERICA BE DRAWN INTO WAR?

THE LEGISLATIVE BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT
100 Senators Republicans are the majority
435 Representatives Republicans are the majority
Republicans slightly decreased their share of seats in the House of Representatives, going from 247 to 241 out of 435 seats. In the Senate, Republicans lost two seats, going from 54 to 52. In both cases the party retained its majority. Thanks to then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's decision to invoke the so-called "nuclear option" in 2013, Democrats will effectively have little power to filibuster Trump's cabinet picks.

HOUSE RYANRepublicans confirmed leadership of Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as Senate Majority Leader and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as Speaker of the House for the 115th Congress.  Other leadership positions will be announced as the new Congress begins Jan. 6, 2017.

 On the Democrat side, the Senate Democratic Caucus elected Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) as Senate Minority Leader for the 115th Congress.

Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-IL) will serve as party whip and Schumers' chief deputy, maintaining a role he held under outgoing Minority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-NV).

Also, added to the Senate Democrats’ leadership team is Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA).  She will serve as the third-ranking Democrat, assuming a new title of assistant Democratic leader.  Schumer expanded his team to include Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Sen. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.), Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

The Democrats also announced changes to the committee leadership that include Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) as ranking member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) as ranking member for the Senate Appropriations Committee.
