Donald Trump celebrated one victory that left Chuck Schumer fuming
Donald Trump is heading into the 2020 election preparing to campaign on his historic achievements.
Democrats got hit with some more bad news on that front.
And Donald Trump celebrated this one victory that left Chuck Schumer fuming.
In 2016, Donald Trump promised to only appoint conservatives to the Supreme Court.
That pledge led many skeptical Republicans to put their trust in Trump and vote for the GOP ticket.
Once in office, President Trump rewarded that faith with a historic pace of conservatives justices being appointed to every level of the federal judiciary that will be ruling for decades to come.
The Washington Post reports:
After three years in office, President Donald Trump has remade the federal judiciary, ensuring a conservative tilt for decades and cementing his legacy no matter the outcome of November’s election.
Trump nominees make up 1 in 4 U.S. circuit court judges. Two of his picks sit on the Supreme Court. And this past week, as the House voted to impeach the president, the Republican-led Senate confirmed another 13 district court judges.
In total, Trump has installed 187 judges to the federal bench.
Trump’s mark on the judiciary is already having far-reaching effects on legislation and liberal priorities. Just last week, the 5th Circuit struck down a core provision of the Affordable Care Act. One of the two appellate judges who ruled against the landmark law was a Trump appointee.
No matter what happens with Donald Trump’s Presidency, his judicial appointments will be shaping American political life for the next 40 years.
That means whenever a Democrat gets back in the White House and tries to push a host of socialist, anti-American schemes to abort babies, grab guns, or takeover sectors of the economy, Trump’s judges will act as a bulwark on this attack on the United States.
