Trump had his 150th judicial nominee approved by the Senate, far outpacing Obama during the same time period.
The U.S. Senate confirmed President Trump’s 150th judicial nominee Wednesday, helping to fulfill the president’s campaign promise to remake the federal bench with a conservative bent.
Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham called the number of confirmations a “historic milestone.”
“These conservative judicial appointments will impact our nation for years to come,” the South Carolina Republican said.
Six district court nominees won confirmation Wednesday, bringing the president’s total number of appointed judges to the lower federal courts to 105. Mr. Trump has also appointed 43 circuit court nominees and two Supreme Court justices since taking office.
The pace has far outdone President Obama, who only saw 20 circuit court nominees and 74 district court judges confirmed during the same period of time. Mr. Obama, though, like Mr. Trump had two Supreme Court appointments within his first three years.
This should be the first thing that comes out of anyone’s mouth when they are attacked by the never-Trump Republican crowd. The bottom line is that anyone who voted against President Trump in 2016 voted against what is looking like one of the most successful Presidents ever as it pertains to judicial nominations.
A lot of credit must be given to Mitch McConnell for this as well. He is sending these people through no problem and is remaking the entire US court system for years to come.
