Trump Nominates New SCOTUS Justice

( – On September 18, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died from pancreatic cancer. Her death left the third Supreme Court vacancy of Donald Trump’s presidency, giving him an opportunity to nominate a Conservative judge to take her place. And that’s exactly what he did a little over a week after RBG’s death.

A Staunch Conservative

On Saturday, Trump announced he was nominating Amy Coney Barrett to fill RBG’s seat on the high court. The president called it a “very proud moment” and said the US Court of Appeals judge has an “unyielding loyalty to the Constitution.”

Barrett, a mother of seven, once clerked for the late Antonin Scalia. She’s incredibly religious and Liberals believe that’s going to lead to a showdown over abortion rights if she’s confirmed. The judge also has a record of opposing the Affordable Care Act and supporting the Second Amendment.

Joe Biden claimed America’s healthcare will be in danger if she’s confirmed by the Senate.

Changing the Face of the Court

If Barrett is confirmed by the Senate, the court would swing to the right. Conservatives would hold a 6-3 majority, something they’ve been working toward for years. While Democrats focused on social justice issues, the Right was working to take control of the courts.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) reportedly has enough votes to confirm Barrett. Democrats are still vowing to put up a fight, but there’s nothing they can really do to prevent the confirmation.

There’s a chance Republicans will now be able to get favorable rulings on all of the issues important to them, including abortion and the Affordable Care Act. America could be changed for decades to come and Trump will have solidified his legacy as the president who altered the face of the country.
