Supreme Court Nominee Will Be A Woman
The President said he wants the next United States Supreme Court Justice to be a woman. He made the announcement Saturday at a North Carolina rally. “I will be putting forth a nominee next week. It will be a woman.” According to Trump, “I think it should be a woman because I actually like women much more than men.”
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday. Ginsburg was 87 and served 27 years on the High Court. Days before her death Ginsburg dictated a message to granddaughter Clara Spera saying, “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
Magnificent Blessing To The World
The President had high praise for the late liberal justice in an official statement on her passing:
“Today, our Nation mourns the loss of a titan of the law. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg served more than 27 years as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States—notably just the second woman to be appointed to the Court. She was a loving wife to her late husband, Martin, and a dedicated mother to her two children.
Renowned for her brilliant mind and her powerful dissents at the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg demonstrated that one can disagree without being disagreeable toward one’s colleagues or different points of view. Her opinions, including well-known decisions regarding the legal equality of women and the disabled, have inspired all Americans, and generations of great legal minds.
A fighter to the end, Justice Ginsburg battled cancer, and other very long odds, throughout her remarkable life. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Ginsburg family and their loved ones during this difficult time. May her memory be a great and magnificent blessing to the world.”
Barrett and Lagoa Top Choices
Multiple political insiders said that the White House has two top candidates for the opening.
- Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the U.S. Court of Appeals
- Former Florida Supreme Court Justice and current 11th Circut Court of Appeals Judge Barbara Lagoa
Judicial experts consider both judges to be Conservative.
