Trump’s Era of Judicial Excellence

Excerpt: Most media pundits have given up trying to make the case that President Donald Trump is an authoritarian tyrant. Now they must grudgingly admit how much he’s done to bolster the rule of law.

Mr. Trump’s appointments to the federal judiciary are remarkable for both their quality and their quantity. By the numbers, Ed Whelan at National Review notes on Wednesday afternoon that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his Senate colleagues have just confirmed the President’s 50th addition to the federal appellate courts, Lawrence VanDyke.

Gary Martin at the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that 50 is “a record for a president this early in a term, said Carl Tobias, a University of Richmond School of Law professor and former founding faculty of UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law.”
