Which are the worst presidents?
On Tuesday, the Senate voted to confirm Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Justice Neil Gorsuch, with 51 votes in favor and 46 against.
Gorsuch is considered a conservative justice and a hard-line conservative who will likely be confirmed.
His first day on the job will be his first day at work as President Donald Trump has put the confirmation process in the hands of the Senate, the White House, and the Republican Party.
The Senate confirmed three more members on Tuesday.
The confirmation of Justice Neil M. Gorsuch to the Supreme Court is one of the most consequential decisions by any President in our nation’s history.
On Monday, the Supreme Senate Court confirmed Justice Clarence Thomas to fill the seat of Justice Anthony Kennedy.
Thomas is a conservative, but also a liberal and a vocal opponent of abortion rights.
The other four nominees confirmed Tuesday were all Democratic presidents.
They are: Supreme Court Justice Clarence Taylor, who has been a justice on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit since 1993; Justice Neil P. Gorsuch, who was nominated to the court by President Bill Clinton in 1997 and confirmed by President George W. Bush in 2001; Justice Sonia Sotomayor, nominated to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Justice Court; and Justice Samuel Alito, nominated by President Barack Obama in 2009.
The list of Republican presidents who have confirmed liberal justices to the high court includes: Former President Ronald Reagan; President George H.W. Bush; President Bill Obama; President Richard Nixon; and former President George Bush Sr.
