President Donald Trump added 20 names to a list of potential SCOTUS nominees to the list he first unveiled in April 2016.

The list could help Trump’s campaign since 21% of voters have SCOTUS as their main issue.

Trump added:

  • 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Bridget S. Bade
  • Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron
  • Texas Sen. Ted Cruz
  • Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton
  • Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley
  • US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit Judge James Ho
  • Former White House lawyer and DC Circuit Judge Greg Katsas
  • White House deputy counsel Kate Comerford
  • US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit Judge Amul Thapar
  • Former Michigan Supreme Court Justice Robert Young
  • US District Court for the Southern District of Florida Judge Frederico Moreno

You can find the rest of the names on the White House webpage.

Trump said:

Unfortunately, there is a growing radical-left movement that rejects the principle of equal treatment under law. If this extreme movement is granted a majority on the Supreme Court, it will fundamentally transform America without a single vote of Congress.

Radical justices will erase the Second Amendment, silence political speech, and require taxpayers to fund extreme late-term abortion. They will give unelected bureaucrats that power to destroy millions of American jobs. They will remove the words “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance. They will unilaterally declare the death penalty unconstitutional, even for the most depraved mass murderers. They will erase national borders, cripple police departments, and grant new protections to anarchists, rioters, violent criminals, and terrorists.

In the recent past, many of our most treasured freedoms, including religious liberty, free speech, and the right to keep and bear arms, have been saved by a single vote on the United States Supreme Court. Our cherished rights are at risk, including the right to life and our great Second Amendment.

The Senate has confirmed 205 Article III judges nominated by Trump, including 53 to the court of appeals.

It’s possible the next president will have to appoint at least three new Supreme Court justices.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 87, Stephen Breyer is 82, and Clarence Thomas is 72. Maybe even four justices since Samuel Alito is 70.

Trump promised those on his original list along with the new names come in the same mold as the late Justice Antonin Scalia, Thomas, and Scalia.

You can imagine how the left responded.
