(Worthy News) - President Donald Trump celebrated having confirmed more than 150 judges to the federal bench during a ceremony at the White House on Wednesday.
“From the beginning of my campaign, I promised to appoint judges who will adhere to the true and original meaning of our Constitution. This afternoon, that promise was made, and that promise was kept, and I think many times over. Later today, the Senate will vote on our 158th new judge,” Trump said.
“We will have confirmed as I said 112 judges to the federal district courts, 44 judges to the federal circuit courts and two outstanding judges to the United States Supreme Court, and that number’s rapidly rising. Now one out of every four circuit judges currently on the bench was appointed by this administration, and that number’s now exceeded that by quite a bit. No president in history has confirmed so many judges - not even close - in such a short period of time,” he said.
