There have been a whole lot of news distractions since President Trump took office. Some of them he brought upon himself, but most are ploys of the liberal media and part of the far left’s agenda to cripple his presidency.
Daily media obsessions with things like Russia have hidden a very positive result of the Trump election. In his first 200 days, President Trump has nominated 44 federal judges including Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. Trump has nominated 11 people to circuit courts and 23 to district courts.
Here’s the big news. Trump has roughly twice as many vacancies to fill as Obama had in this same time. He has 105 judicial vacancies. Obama had 54. Plus, in the last six months, 33 judges have left the bench, meaning that Trump has 138 vacancies to fill.
