One In Four Judges Are Trump Nominees
December 27, 2019
This month, President Donald Trump passed two incredible milestones when it comes to the restoration of the Federal Judiciary. With incredible help from the Senate GOP, specifically Mitch McConnell, Linsday Graham, and Chuck Grassley, Trump has appointed 50 Circuit court judges. This means that one in every four judges on the circuit courts has been appointed by this administration.
Washington Post reports:
After three years in office, President Trump has remade the federal judiciary, ensuring a conservative tilt for decades and cementing his legacy no matter the outcome of November’s election.Trump nominees make up 1 in 4 U.S. circuit court judges. Two of his picks sit on the Supreme Court. And this past week, as the House voted to impeach the president, the Republican-led Senate confirmed an additional 13 district court judges.In total, Trump has installed 187 judges to the federal bench.Trump’s mark on the judiciary is already having far-reaching effects on legislation and liberal priorities. Just last week, the 5th Circuit struck down a core provision of the Affordable Care Act. One of the two appellate judges who ruled against the landmark law was a Trump appointee.
President Trump ran on judges in 2016. This is an absolute success, something that every conservative should be immensely proud of. Keep up the great work Mr. President!
