President Trump is falling behind on filling key positions at the Department of State compared to previous administrations. Notable career diplomats and foreign policy experts have warned that such a delay in appointing important officials undermines the ability of the department to advance US interests home and abroad.  

The Washington Post and Partnership for Public Service are tracking the key executive branch nominations through the confirmation process.

128 Positions at the State Department require Senate confirmation.
