President Trump Announced Who His Next SCOTUS Pick Is & Democrats Are FURIOUS!

on

When President Trump was on the campaign trail he promised he would pick Supreme Court Justices when Honor, and Dignity. He promised the American people that he would pick a Justice who respects the United States Constitution. His first choice to fill the vacant seat after the death of the great Justice Antonin Scalia was Neil Gorsuch. Gorsuch was possibly the greatest pick the President could have put on the court at the time. A true Constitutionalist, and traditionalist. That’s exactly what American wanted, and needed! The left wing went after Gorsuch claiming he was too right wing and wasn’t fit for the job. However, the Republican-controlled U.S Senate voted to put Gorsuch on the bench.

Now, President Trump has another seat to fill after Justice Anthony Kennedy a Reagan Appointee has decided to retire. President Trump has a long list of potential candidates, but one has stood out to him from the very start.

According to Bloomberg, President Donald Trump has asked his advisors how they feel about nominating 47-year-old Senator Mike Lee (UT-R) to replace Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court. President Trump believes Lee would easily make it through the confirmation hearings in the Senate.  However, the president has also expressed concerns about the Senate seat Lee’s appointment would leave vacant and keeping it in Republican hands.

President Trump states he has been assured that the seat will remain safely in Republican hands, yet the president complained he was assured the same about the Alabama Senate seat held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.  That seat is now held by Democrat Doug Jones in a highly contentious special election that saw Republican candidate Roy Moore smeared by decades-old allegations of sexual impropriety just weeks before the election causing Moore to lose a significant lead over Jones.

Lee would be the left’s worst nightmare as Bloomberg notes, “Lee has publicly denounced the Supreme Court’s landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion rights ruling, which could complicate his confirmation. Many of the other potential nominees, most of whom are judges, haven’t taken as clear a position on reversing the precedent.”

 

Democratic leader Chuck Schumer (NY) urged the Senate to hold off on confirming Kennedy’s replacement until after November’s midterm elections. Speaking on the Senate floor, he said that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should follow the same precedent set by Republicans in 2016 when they refused to weigh in on Merrick Garland (who was not confirmed) for months.

Schumer said that the vacancy is “the most important Supreme Court vacancy for this country in at least a generation,” noting that women’s reproductive rights and other issues hanging in the balance.

Critics note that Lee declined to endorse President Trump in the highly contentious 2016 presidential election and said he voted for an independent candidate and fellow Utahan Evan McMullin instead as “a protest vote.” Lee explained his vote for McMullin due to anger at the Republican National Convention when it appeared the RNC committee was attempting to break the RNC’s own rules and steamroll dissent.

If President Trump were to choose Mike Lee, then that would seal the deal for 2020 even more than what it already is. Lee never endorsed the President, but Mr. Trump knows a good man when he see’s one. We happen to agree that Mike Lee would be the perfect pick for the Supreme Court.
