Senate Republicans Just Confirmed Another Trump Judicial Nominee – And Broke A Record Doing So

Democrats and their media allies keep saying Trump hasn’t gotten anything done. It’s not true but that’s what they want people to think. The truth is that Trump is appointing a record number of Conservative judges and Senate Republicans are helping him do it.

The Hill reports:

Senate GOP breaks record on confirming Trump’s court picks

Senate Republicans confirmed President Trump’s twelfth federal appeals judge nominee on Thursday, setting a record for the number of circuit picks confirmed in a president’s first year.

Senators voted 55-43 on James Ho’s nomination to be a judge for the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, making him the first Asian American on the court.

He’s the third circuit court pick Republicans confirmed this week and Trump’s twelfth appeals pick to be confirmed this year—the most any president has gotten in his first year since the court was created in 1891.

By comparison, former President Obama got three appellate judges confirmed in his first year and former President George W. Bush got six confirmed. Meanwhile, former presidents Kennedy and Nixon both got 11 confirmed during their first year.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) noted from the Senate floor that Republicans were having a “historic week.”

“The Senate will take another important step to ensure that the federal judiciary fulfills its proper role in our constitutional system. Each of them will be an asset to our nation’s courts,” he said ahead of Ho’s vote.

These are changes that will last a generation or more! It’s fantastic news.
