Millions of Americans are on the edge of their seats waiting to see who Donald Trump will name to the Supreme Court. While conservatives are excited by the prospect of having the majority on the highest court in the land, liberals are terrified about who he may name.
Now, reports are coming in that indicate what Trump has planned for his Supreme Court appointees.
Voters chose Donald Trump, but now he hopes to return the favor with a looming far-reaching decision that could impact the lives of Americans on a range of hot-button issues for another generation.
No longer a question of if, but whom and when, the next member of the U.S. Supreme Court will almost certainly be a conservative, and perhaps the first of several nominees who could cement this bench’s current shaky right-leaning majority. Let the political parlor games begin.
As the Trump transition team moves to first fill key cabinet and White House staff positions, parallel post-election focus on the high court vacancy has now started to coalesce, according to legal sources close to the vetting process.
Some conservative advocacy groups have quietly suggested Trump signal before his inauguration who his pick would be, to jump-start the Senate confirmation process, and allow the president-to-be to turn his attention to other “First 100 Days” agenda items like immigration and the budget.
