President-elect Donald Trump will be free to appoint over 100 federal court vacancies as well as a Supreme Court justice when he becomes president next month.

103 federal court positions will be left to Trump’s discretion when he assumes office, almost double that of Barack Obama in 2008, who had 54.

The appointments will be an opportunity for Trump to push forward a conservative agenda, with judges responsible for laws surrounding everything from gun rights to immigration and equality law.

Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director of the conservative group Judicial Crisis Network, which campaigned against many of Obama’s court choices, said that she was “optimistic he’ll [Trump] come at this right out of the gate.”

“Every president can expect to make a huge impact. [Trump] is unique in having campaigned really hard on this issue, the significance of the courts, and of the Supreme Court in particular,” she continued.

The vacancy on the Supreme Court comes following the death of conservative Supreme Court judge Justice Antonin Scalia in February earlier this year.

  1. there is a lawsuit that will be taking place against the federal governments right to enact gun control legislation. With trumps justices, all federal gun laws since 1934 could potentially be void.

    1. That could be possible if Trump put in some true stalwarts. My two top picks would be Judge Andrew Napolitano and Dr. Edwin Vieira, but I seriously doubt we will see anyone of that caliber appointed, unfortunately.
