Don’s judicial nominees blindingly white
WASHINGTON — President Trump is nominating white men to America’s federal courts at a rate not seen in nearly 30 years.
So far, 91% of Trump’s 58 nominees are white, and 81% are male, an Associated Press analysis has found. Three of every four are white men, with few AfricanAmericans and Hispanics in the mix.
The last President to nominate a similarly homogenous group was George H.W. Bush.
So far, Trump has nominated the highest percentage of white judges in his first year since Ronald Reagan. If he continues on his trend through his first term, he will be the first Republican since Herbert Hoover to name fewer women and minorities to the court than his GOP predecessor.
