This May Be Trump's Biggest Legacy


Yesterday, the US Senate confirmed Greg Katsas to the D.C. Court of Appeals. This is the ninth appeals court judge confirmed since Trump took office., compared to Obamas three at the same point in his presidency. In terms of impact, the D. C. Court of Appeals is probably the most important circuit in the nation as virtually all regulatory issues end up before that court. Republicans have struggled to get any meaningful legislation passed in recent months. At this rate, Donald Trump’s signature accomplishment is going to be stocking the courts with young, conservative jurists who will shape American jurisprudence for the next forty years.

  • Here's What's Happened With The Paris Deal

    In December 2015, nearly every country, including all of the world's biggest polluters, came together in Paris and agreed to limit carbon emissions. It was a cornerstone of President Barack Obama's environmental legacy. Now President Donald Trump is withdrawing the US from the accord. What does that actually mean? The U.S.'s original plan was to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 26% to 28% by 2025. Because Obama didn't get approval, Trump was able to quickly reverse the order.

  • Chris Christie Wants A Comeback?

    New Jersey governor Chris Christie is feeling good again. He remains one of the country's most unpopular executives. He has had a dismal year in which two allies were sentenced to prison, the state’s credit rating continued to drop, and his White House dreams were conspicuously dashed by Donald Trump. Christie is entering into the last eight months in office. He often seems happier and more focused than at any point since the Bridgegate scandal broke, several people close to him say. He is again taking on an ambitious agenda in New Jersey, trying to buttress and shape his once-enviable legacy. He is enjoying significant influence in Trump's world. Christie is spearheading a new national anti-addiction effort, talking to the president several times per week, and recently spending much of two days in the Oval Office advising Trump. The governor also rediscovered his fighting spirit back home. In recent weeks, the governor has made a show of taking on New Jersey’s biggest insurer, attacking its “multi-million dollar mouthpieces, out there lying,” and has seemed to enjoy tussling with his old adversaries in the Trenton press corps. Christie has also reignited his feud with the state’s labor unions, by promising to enact new pension reforms and restructure the state’s school-funding system. Whether he wants to make a bunch of money in the private sector or he is angling for a job inside the administration or he wants some for of redemption just for himself, Chris Christie is certainly mounting a comeback.
