With a new Republican majority in the House, President Donald Trump has nominated more cabinet picks than the Democrats.
In the past week, Trump has named five Cabinet secretaries who are both Democrats and Republicans: Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
But those five cabinet secretaries are just the most recent names.
Trump also picked a new secretary of defense, who is a Republican.
And he picked a deputy attorney general, who will likely be a Republican, as well.
And in a move that is likely to anger many of his supporters, Trump appointed two more Democrats to the Supreme Court.
While the Cabinet picks are all Republicans, there are a few who are Democrats, including Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, who served as U.S. attorney in Newark and was named to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
(Booker’s nomination is still pending in the Senate.)
In the same week that Trump named five cabinet picks, he also nominated a federal judge to the nation’s top appeals court.
The nomination comes at a critical moment for the Supreme Courts, as Trump is set to take the unprecedented step of nominating a new Supreme Court justice and a judge.
But the nomination of two more Republicans to the federal appeals court is particularly controversial.
In December, Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the vacancy left by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, but the two-term judge is a staunch opponent of abortion rights and has said he would uphold Roe v.
Wade, which established abortion as legal in the United States.
A number of Republican senators have criticized the nomination, with some suggesting that Trump had the right judge and that the appointment would send a message to judges who would challenge Roe v., Wade.
Gorsuch’s nomination has been subject to significant internal Republican debate.
Republicans in the Judiciary Committee were divided over whether to vote on Gorsuch’s confirmation.
But Republicans in both chambers are voting for Gorsuch to the full Senate, which will then vote on his confirmation.
Trump’s Cabinet picks have been met with widespread criticism.
The list includes the likes of Mnuchin, DeVos, Shulkins, Chao, Shrum and Price, but they also include some Democrats and others who are Republicans, such as Price’s wife, Betsy DeVos, and former Secretary of Labor Tom Perez.
A Trump administration official told Axios that they have yet to see the full list of nominees, and that they will not be making any decisions until the president announces them publicly.
