Trump is only applying the recommendations of the Federalist Society, so it is the right wing ideology they subscribe to that matters, not the skin colour.Michael H Park has been confirmed since my last post on this thread. This reduces the liberal majority of active judges on the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals (which includes the extremely liberal states of NY, Vermont and Connecticut) to just 1, and with 2 vacancies (1 Dem and 1 GOP retirement), it will be a conservative majority of 1 if Trump gets to fill both of them.
The fact Park is a Korean-American underlines, along with his appointment of Asian-American judges like James Ho (5th Circuit Court of Appeals which includes Texas), and John Nalbandian in the 6th Circuit underlines that Trump is not a racist.
Most of that ideology concerns itself with "business friendliness", and smashing worker's rights, health and safety regulation, environmental protection, trade unions and collective bargaining in the interests of Trump's plutocrat backers and their corporate profits.
I am sure they can be relied up to suppress minority voting, and find against women's reproductive health, as well.
Asian-Americans are not particularly impressed by Trump's open-mindedness. He is creating a new generation of Democrat voters.
