Is POTUS trying to recreate the bench in his own image of white, male and conservatives? There appears to be a whole lot more to the story of Trump's unqualified judicial nominees.

Trump judicial nominees have caught the public spotlight for good reason, Besides their inexperience is obscuring an even more troubling story about what is at stake and that is there are many more vacancies on the bench.

Since taking office, Republican President Donald Trump nominated 191 individuals to federal judgeships, 146 of whom have been confirmed. There were 123 vacancies in the federal judiciary, as of July 31, 2019.
