Senate confirms Trump’s 200th judicial nomination

Democrats have relentlessly attacked Donald Trump since the day he set foot in the White House, but despite their constant obstruction, he’s made history by appointing scores of judges in under four years.

The GOP-controlled Senate just confirmed Donald Trump’s 200th judicial nomination on Wednesday, marking the first time in decades that every single circuit court seat has been filled. 

Judge Cory Wilson, Trump’s 200th judicial nominee, was confirmed by the Senate on Wednesday to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. With Wilson’s confirmation, Trump will have appointed 52 appellate judges during his first three and a half years in the White House. President Barack Obama only managed to appoint 55 during both of his terms.

“When we depart this chamber today, there will not be a single circuit court vacancy anywhere in the nation for the first time in at least 40 years,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) ahead of Wednesday’s vote.

According to the Washington Examiner, “no president has confirmed that many judges in one term in 40 years.” Though Hosue Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and company have worked their hardest to block Trump from achieving his goals, this milestone could be one of Trump’s most significant achievements of his entire presidency.

Not only has Trump appointed a total of 200 judges, but he’s also made it clear that he’s not stopping there. Both McConnell and Trump agree that there is still work to be done. McConnell said in February that “my motto for the year is ‘Leave no vacancy behind’. That includes district courts as well. So, we’re a long way from being finished with doing court confirmations this year.”

Democrats, of course, are absolutely furious at Trump’s astonishing success in pushing through the placement of dozens of conservative judges in courts across the nation. Chris Kang, a co-founder of the liberal group Demand Justice, snarled after the confirmation of Trump’s 199th nomination, Judge Justin Walker, last week:

This is all part of the broader Republican plan to take politically minded people and put them into judgeships, thereby making sure that the rulings that come out are going to be more political, more partisan, and less committed to the rule of law.

While President Trump can only spend a maximum of four years in the White House, the judges he places in our nation’s courts will carry the Conservative legacy long after Trump has left public office.

  1. Mind you, McConnell blocked many of Obama’s nominations. It wasn’t because Obama did not try to get nominees confirmed. Another example of McConnell’s blocking action.

  2. I am 94 years old, and Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump are the two best presidents we have had during my lifetime.

    Until the corona virus struck, we had reached one of the best economies our nation ever knew, and the economy will return to that level unless the radical left is successful in destroying it by voting in another democrat.

    God bless Donald Trump

  3. This country suffers from Envy! The motto for the liberals should be! I want what you have, but No to you for what I got! The democrats just can’t find the words Congratulations or thank you Mr. President! “Jealousy” is also rampant in our society. I
    Say get over it! You get what you work for & deserve out of life! Amen/Alleluia

  4. This is why We Need to Return Him to Office for a Second Term; Then give him a Third Term Due to the Interference created by Democratic Communists during his first term.

  5. President Trump, WE LOVE YOU. Obama got a second term because he was charismatic to the weak. He more than doubled our national debt, this includes ALL the Presidents before him. Illustration, “Cash for clunkers”. You Mr. President are a very astute business man, this is why I voted for you. I am a WW2 veteran 93 yrs. old. I remember shortly after the war, President Truman’s administration was considering the devastation in Europe and Asia from the war. Trade agreements still existed with these nations. We forgave these commitments to allow them to rebuild their nations. China was still a backward nation maintaining WARLORDS. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS THE FIRST PRESIDENT to globally address this issue because he is a business man, and understands the world of finance. We as a nation were sinking economically and he felt that if this nation was going to survive, he had to step in and take on the burden of our national survival. Does he have weaknesses? hell yes, but don’t we all. He believes in GOD OUR SAVIOR, so to us he has become the right hand of God, those who oppose him and oppress us, are tools of the devil. So have faith, we will do what we must do, and REELECT PRESIDENT TRUMP to a second term. GOD BLESS HIM.
