President Trump continues to reshape courts and make them more conservative. The Senate has confirmed 8 more Trump picks in just 3 days.
This brings President Trump’s total to 170 nominations since taking office.
—120 on district courts
—48 on circuit courts
—2 on Supreme Court
Bloomberg reporter Sahil Kapur observed that Donald Trump has now picked about one in every five American federal judges.
Per Kapur “It gets a tiny fraction of attention compared to other stuff he does but this is the Trump legacy that’ll echo for generations after he’s gone.”

One Trump supporter replied optimistically:
“and in another 5 years, that number will double. WINNING!”
