President Donald Trump with his campaign came several big promises that would make America great again. So far, he has been doing a great job of keeping those promises. But none of them might be as crucial as the selection of Supreme Court Justices.
He has been quick to change the country after 8 years of Obama.
These justices have the ability to serve for life. That means it is important to get it right. And the first one we saw, Neil Gorsuch, has been doing a terrific job of keeping true to our conservative values.
But there is a chance for even more. The next three years promise big changes when it comes to the Supreme Court. And who Trump picks as a replacement could dictate which direction our country goes in the future.
According to the White House, the list currently boasts 25 names. Of which include strong Conservatives like Amy Coney Barrett, Britt Grant, Brett Kavanaugh, Kevin Newsom and Patrick Wyrick. (See The Full List Below)
In a statement, the White House said “President Trump will choose a nominee for a future Supreme Court vacancy, should one arise, from this updated list of 25 individuals.”
“The president remains deeply committed to identifying and selecting outstanding jurists in the mold of Justice Gorsuch. These additions, like those on the original list released more than a year ago, were selected with input from respected conservative leaders.”
