(Worthy News) - Donald Trump pledged during the 2016 presidential campaign that if elected he would appoint judges who adhere to the Constitution as written, originalists, and so far he seems to have kept his promise with 164 nominations to various federal courts confirmed by the Senate. Several more are likely to be confirmed by the end of this year.
Since his inauguration, President Donald Trump has put forward 230 nominees for seats on the District Courts, Circuit Courts, Appeals Courts, the Supreme Court, as well as international trade, federal claims, and tax courts.
As of Dec. 2, 164 of those nominees had been confirmed by the Senate, reported the Heritage Foundation, which hosts a Judicial Appointment Tracker online. [ Source: CNS News (Read More...) ]
