President Trump has sent nominations to the Senate at a faster pace than most recent presidents but has struggled to get those nominees confirmed. He trails President Obama on both measures.

This tracker has been updated to exclude ambassadorships staffed by career diplomats who can serve across administrations. Some ambassadors cover more than one country, such as the ambassador to Spain and Andorra. Those are now reflected in the tracker.
