One-quarter of Nation’s Appellate Judges are Trump Appointees
Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) celebrated a major milestone as President Trump’s nominees now make up one-quarter of judges serving on the United States’ circuit courts of appeals. In the past three years, President Trump has had more than 150 judges confirmed to the federal bench, including Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
“Congratulations to President Trump on this historic achievement. We are grateful for his constant efforts to nominate judges of the highest caliber,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA List. “On the campaign trail, then-candidate Trump pledged to appoint principled and fair judges who would respect the Constitution and the consensus views of the American people on life. With more than 150 nominees confirmed, President Trump is transforming the American judiciary and has more than delivered on this key promise to pro-life voters who put their trust in him. We commend President Trump, along with Leader McConnell, Chairman Graham and the pro-life Senate majority for their important role in this milestone and look forward to seeing even more exceptional judges confirmed.”
SBA List is a network of more than 837,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
