One of Donald Trump’s most popular applause lines on the campaign trail was his pledge to fill the vacancy left on the Supreme Court with a judge in the conservative mold of the late Anton Scalia.
More Americans than ever before understand that the left has used the Supreme Court to legislate “progressive” laws from the bench and undermine democracy. Trump has the opportunity to at least restore ideological balance on this all important branch of the government.
However, more than just a single SCOTUS seat is up for grabs, as Sierra Marlee reports for Right Wing News:
Upon taking office on January 20th of next year, Donald Trump is looking at a huge mess. Along with sorting that out, he also has the responsibility of filling over 100 judicial vacancies, including that left by the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
Conservatives expect President-elect Trump to fill these vacancies with conservative/Republican judges to help him push his agenda, but the biggest area of contention will be the Supreme Court vacancy.
While he just needs a simple majority of 51 Senators to confirm a nominee, his problem will be picking a nominee that his supporters and opponents find acceptable.
By appointing conservatives to these other one hundred vacancies, Trump can begin to turn around the liberal bent of courts around the nation, and thereby undermine and undo the leftwing agenda that’s been destroying traditional American culture.
