President Trump just blew another big hole in Obama’s legacy!
The Senate just confirmed the president’s 19th federal judge and with that, Trump just outpaced Obama’s first-year appointment of 14 federal judges.

The Senate confirmed President Trump’s 19th federal judge Thursday, approving James Ho for a seat on the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and further bolstering the judicial army that conservatives wanted to build.
Mr - Ho - Vote - Appeals - Court
Mr. Ho, confirmed on a 53-43 vote, becomes the first Asian-American on that appeals court. Democratic Sens. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota joined Republicans in voting for Mr. Ho.
He’s the third federal appeals court judge the Senate confirmed this week, and the 19th judge overall. That’s well ahead of the 14 that President Obama had won by the end of his first year, but behind the pace of Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.
Tax - Bill - President - Trump - Confirmation
“If the tax bill does not pass, President Trump can claim the confirmation of judges as his most significant achievement in the first year,” said Carl Tobias, law professor at the University of Richmond.
Mr. Trump entered office facing more than 100 judicial vacancies, including one on the Supreme Court. Justice Neil M. Gorsuch was his first court victory, and he’s followed it up with a series of confirmations, the majority coming on the federal appeals courts, which are particularly crucial.
Senate - Judiciary - Committee - Chairman - Chuck
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, celebrated Mr. Ho’s confirmation and the quick pace he’s overseen on behalf of Mr. Trump.
“Proud to say the judiciary committee + the senate made history 2day by confirming the 12th circuit judge this year. the MOST in the 1st [year] of any president in the 228 [year] history of our country,” Mr. Grassley tweeted.
