Trump on Supreme offensive against Biden
"Unfortunately, there is a growing radical left movement that rejects the principle of equal treatment under the law," Trump said after naming his candidates. "If this extreme movement is granted a majority on the Supreme Court, it will fundamentally transform America without a single vote of Congress."
I appreciate the President’s confidence in listing me as a potential Supreme Court nominee. But as I told the President, Missourians elected me to fight for them in the Senate, and I have no interest in the high court. I look forward to confirming constitutional conservatives— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) September 9, 2020
"Radical justices will erase the Second Amendment, silence political speech and require taxpayers to fund extremely late-term abortion," he contiued.
The names on President Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees are exactly the types of justices the majority of Americans don’t want on the high court.— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) September 9, 2020
"It will give unelected bureaucrats the 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."
