.Judges were intended to apply, not make, our laws
In just three years, President Trump has nominated and had confirmed two Supreme Court justices, 44 Circuit Court judges, and 112 District Court judges. Today, that historic pace is only accelerating: The President is set to have more judges confirmed this year alone than in all of 2017 and 2018 combined.
This quote from President Trump may be the most important:
|When judges write policy instead of applying the law, they impose sweeping changes on millions of Americans without the benefit of legislative debate, public rulemaking, or the consent of the governed. As a result, these highly political rulings inflict painful damage on our security, society, and economy—imposing unworkable edicts on businesses, workers, families, and law enforcement.
President Donald J. Trump has appointed—and gotten confirmed—158 life-tenured federal judges who will defend our Constitution, personal freedoms, and the rule of law. A few of the highlights:
- President Trump’s nominees alone fill one-quarter of the seats on our nation’s Circuit Courts of Appeals.
- His nominees fill two of the nine powerful seats on America’s Supreme Court.
- He has seen more Circuit Court judges confirmed by this point in his presidency than any past president in United States history.
