Trump has been able to confirm two nominees to the Supreme Court.
And Democrats are furious.
But he isn’t done, considering that he’s about to get a brand new Supreme Court win.
During Obama’s entire presidency, he was able to confirm two nominees to the Supreme Court.
Serving lifetime appointments, they will be able to support Obama’s agenda in the courts until the day they resign or pass away.
But already, Trump has been able to match Obama in Supreme Court confirmations, confirming two nominees who support his agenda, which is simply supporting the Constitution.
Both Justice Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh believe in interpreting the Constitution the way it is written.
This means that unconstitutional Democrat policies will have a lot of trouble passing through the top court.
But new news coming out shows that Trump will likely have another chance to add a new Supreme Court Justice.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a longstanding member of the Court, being appointed by former President Bill Clinton in 1993.
She is consistently seen as one of the most far-left Supreme Court Justices of all time.
That makes her a sort of folk hero among Democrats, who see her as a feminist hero.
But new reports coming out show that her days on the Supreme Court may be coming to a close.
For the past few months, her health has been a major concern.
She has not been able to do many of her duties on the court due to a series of health concerns.
Already, this week the 85-year-old Justice has been absent from the Court, unable to make oral arguments on a number of cases.
And now Fox News is reporting she will miss next week’s Court session and work from home in order to recover from early-stage lung cancer surgery.
“Justice Ginsburg will continue to work from home next week and will participate in the consideration and decision of the cases on the basis of the briefs and the transcripts of oral arguments. Her recovery from surgery is on track,” Supreme Court public information officer Kathy Arberg said in a statement.
This news is troubling for Democrats who are relying on Justice Ginsburg to prevent Trump from winning many major victories in the Court.
Only time will tell if her recovery goes smoothly, but if she is not able to return after next week’s absence, her retirement will be likely.
This is why reports claim that the White House is already reaching out to lawmakers and legal advocates to make clear that they are ready for any vacancy.
If she does vacate her seat, a vicious fight for who will replace her is expected.
The confirmation process of Justice Kavanaugh shows just how far Democrats are willing to go to stop Trump from getting another Court win.
Whoever Trump chooses to take her place is going to go through a vicious confirmation process.
But the process will be slightly easier due to gains in the Senate from the November midterm elections.
Do you think Justice Ginsburg should retire?
