Brett Kavanaugh
President Donald J. Trump looks on as Anthony M. Kennedy, retired Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, swears in Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to be the Supreme Court's 114th justice Monday, Oct. 8, 2018, in the East Room of the White House in Washington, D.C. Justice Kavanaugh is joined by his wife Ashley, holding the Bible, and their daughters Liza and Margaret. |

Trump boasted of having had 218 judges that he appointed being confirmed, including U.S. Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.

“No administration has ever done what we've done in the first three years. Nobody. With tax cuts, Supreme Court judges, 218 judges. We’re up to 218, including D.C.,” said Trump.

“Together we're defeating the radical socialist Democrats, the fake news media, the crooked politicians, and the hate-filled left-wing mob.”

Last year, Fox News described Trump as having a “transformative impact on the federal judiciary” due to the large number of appointees who have been confirmed at various levels of the Judicial Branch.
