Trump’s judges have received nearly half of all no votes in U.S. history, an average of about 22 per judge (and about 36 per circuit judge) — as compared to just over 6 per judge.

On that time frame, McConnell would have to confirm a justice during Congress’ lame-duck session, the session that takes place between presidential and Senate transitions of power.

That legacy comprises the 89 judges, and rapidly counting, that Trump has nominated, and Senate Republicans have confirmed, to serve at all levels of the federal court system.

Trump has now nominated 16 judges for the courts of appeals, and 44 judges for the district courts to fill these vacancies.

A mere 11 of these nominations are female (%). Trump has had more judges confirmed to the federal appellate courts in his first 18 months than any other president, according to the Boston Globe, and now he has.
