54. Yes!! Under the radar, Trump has appointed more justices than Obama, Bush, Clinton

https://www.dailysignal.com/2017/08/10/trump-appoints-more-judges-in-200-days-than-obama-bush-clinton/


"Trump has taken some criticism for not filling executive branch jobs more quickly. But the same cannot be said for appointments to the judiciary, as he is also surpassing Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton in the first 200 days.

Trump entered office Jan. 20 with 105 judicial vacancies, about twice as many as Obama’s 54 openings. And more judges have left the bench over the last half year, bringing the current number of vacancies to 138.

Last week, before going on a two-week “working vacation” at his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, Trump submitted a sixth wave of judicial candidates to the Senate, this time with 10 nominees. The Senate is in recess until after Labor Day.


People think Trump is losing it. He is not. He is changing America by keeping us all distracted and he is quietly and is Machiavellian "the employment of cunning and duplicity in statecraft or in general conduct" in his doing so. Why aren't the Dems or the media exposing all this carnage that affects everyday lives. Kavanaugh is only one man who will be powerful I agree. But all the lower courts will shape America far more. Who is paying attention?
