Another Record Falls To Trump

President Trump has continued to break records as his presidency has faced mounting scrutiny. This time President Trump broke a judicial record by getting his 22nd appeals court judge confirmed.

According to The Daily Caller:

With the help of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Senate Republicans, President Trump just broke a record for appeals court judge confirmations during the first half of a presidency.

Andrew Oldham’s narrow 50-49 vote confirmation on Wednesday to the 5th Circuit made him President Trump’s 23rd circuit court judge, breaking former President George H.W. Bush’s record of 22 such judges during his first two years in office.

To lend perspective on the accomplishment, former President Obama had only 16 appeals court confirmations and George W. Bush had 17 after their second year in office, The Hill reports.

“The Senate continues to confirm impressive nominees whom President Trump has asked to serve our country,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “[Oldham] comes highly recommended by colleagues and peers from across the spectrum.”

This is a significant record and one that will shape the judiciary for years to come. This is a lasting legacy that Trump can look at with pride.
