President Donald Trump responded directly to conservative commentator Laura Ingraham minutes after she appeared on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning to criticize the lack of appointees in government jobs.
“We only have had a FEMA director since June… I think we can all look at these horrific pictures [of Houston flooding] and we can conclude that a Federal government does need staff. We see it acutely in need of staff,” Ingraham said. “This isn’t the only crisis we’re facing. This is massive… we’re also facing a huge crisis with North Korea.”
Trump disagreed and took to Twitter to respond directly to his favorite morning show.

Trump tagged Ingraham in the response that was sent out minutes after the segment aired.
On the Fox News morning show, Ingraham also said that Americans are losing confidence. The administration has over 300 positions without a nominee and Ingraham said Trump’s team “has a lot on their hands” but needs to have people in place.
Ingraham criticized the lack of appointees in several key areas, saying, “It’s not ideal.”
Ingraham and Trump appear to have a strong relationship and she was long rumored to join his communications team. Ingraham also praised Texans for the way the devastating storm has been handled during her appearance on “Fox & Friends.”
She said people need “love and prayers,” which she said is something the government can’t provide.
