WASHINGTON UPDATE 05/15/2018 GOP SLOWLY BALANCING THE COURTS
GOP Stays the Courts with Nominees
If all Donald Trump did with these four years was balance the courts, his presidency would still be a success. Lucky for us, he's got his sights set on a lot more than that -- and a pile of accomplishments to prove it. But in an age when more decisions are being snatched out of his hands and put in the courts', this president understands there's only one way to protect that progress: confirming men and women to the bench who respect and uphold the law.
It's been a year and a half of record animosity between the media and President Trump. But, the irony, says White House advisor Kellyanne Conway, is that the negative coverage may have actually had the opposite effect. And it takes just a quick glance at the ratings and Americans' trust in the media to see why.
