(Worthy News) - President Trump is smashing the record for appointing judges to the powerful federal appeals courts with 29 picks confirmed, helping him put his stamp on the judiciary well beyond the Supreme Court.

He has had less of an impact on the lower district courts, where he ranks near the middle with his predecessors of the past few decades. He also has had two Supreme Court nominations confirmed.

For conservatives, the pace of action is a major victory, particularly in the face of overwhelming opposition from liberal activists and Senate Democrats, who have used extreme delaying tactics to try to limit Mr. Trump’s influence on the shape of the courts. [ Source (Read More...) ]

  1. I'm smiling from ear to ear. These judges are going to be in their seats for decades. And even if a Demoncratic President happens to get elected, he's always going to have a court system opposed to him. Trump is smart.
