The U.S. Senate is ending the year with significant judicial confirmation achievements. In 2019, the Senate confirmed a historic 102 judges, further solidifying President Trump’s legacy in reshaping the federal judiciary.

To emphasize the historic significance of the Senate’s confirmations this year, the number of confirmed judges in 2019 is more than twice the annual average of judges confirmed over the past several decades and the second-highest number of judicial confirmations in a single year in U.S. history. Of the 102 confirmations this year, 20 were to the U.S. Court of Appeals, bringing President Trump’s total number of appointed appeals court judges to 50. To put this in perspective, President Obama appointed 55 appeals court judges during his entire eight years as President.

Despite the unprecedented levels of opposition by Democrats, the Senate’s significant confirmation achievements in 2019 have helped solidify President Trump’s judicial legacy. President Trump is fulfilling his promise to appoint judges who will set aside their personal views and political prejudices in order to protect and honor the Constitution and the rule of law. Over the course of his presidency, President Trump has appointed 187 federal judges, including 50 appeals court judges, and two Supreme Court Justices. This historic transformation of the judiciary is one of a long list of President Trump’s accomplishments since he took office in 2017.

Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, “This is a historic time in our nation when President Trump has appointed and had confirmed more judicial nominees than any other president. What’s more, President Trump has consistently nominated federal judges who are committed to originalism. Judges who interpret the law according to the Constitution are critical for maintaining the rule of law and the proper balance of the three branches of government. President Trump’s legacy in reshaping the federal judiciary to one that respects the rule of law will last for decades.

  1. Just finishing a really good book “Inside Trump’s Whitehouse” by Doug Wead. It’s an indepth look at his family & Trump before & after the election. For the first time in a long time we have a fighter who is turning corruption around and America is coming back. Against all odds Trump is working to restore this country to it’s greatness but the libs continue to try to tear it all down. They are the ones who should be tried for treason.
