NRA’s Cox: Trump Keeping Promise On Judicial Nominations

Just a few weeks after President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, won confirmation in the U.S. Senate, the president is moving forward with filling vacancies on lower federal courts. And Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, believes that is going quite well.

“As he did in nominating Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court, once again President Trump is keeping his promise to the American people by nominating constitutional originalists across the federal courts,” Cox told the Washington Free Beacon.

Such nominations are incredibly important to the future of freedom in our country. There are some 127 vacancies on various federal courts, which gives Trump an opportunity to offset some of the 331 liberal judges Barack Obama appointed to the federal courts during his tenure as president.
