TRUMP ANNOUNCES NEW SUPREME COURT JUSTICE
Millions of liberals were stunned last night when Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election. Now, they are absolutely terrified, as they have realized what Trump will be able to do with the Supreme Court…
Reuters reported that Trump’s win allows him the chance to appoint a pivotal fifth conservative justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, giving conservatives the majority on the highest court in the land. This comes as AMAZING news to Republicans everywhere.
“If you have a conservative court, you are going to have more conservative decisions,” said Kerri Kupec, a lawyer with the Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative Christian legal group involved in religious rights cases.
Since three judges on the Supreme Court are aged 78 or older, Trump may be able to appoint more judges to the court. This list of elderly justices includes 83-year-old liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who called on Trump to resign back in July after she called him a “faker.” Her fellow liberal Stephen Breyer is 78, while the conservative justice Anthony Kennedy is 80.
Trump has already issued a shortlist of 21 judges that he is considering appointing to the Supreme Court. Many of the names on the list are federal judges appointed by President George W. Bush and state court judges, and all of them have conservative credentials on such issues as abortion, birth control and gun rights.
Here’s Trump’s full list, according to Business Insider:
4. Allison Eid
5. Neil Gorsuch
9. Joan Larsen
10. Mike Lee
11. Thomas Lee
12. Edward Mansfield
13. Federico Moreno
14. William Pryor
15. Margaret A. Ryan
16. Amul Thapar
18. David Stras
19. Diane Sykes
20. Don Willett
21. Robert Young
