Donald Trump has released his list of choices for U.S. supreme Court should he be elected. Or has he?
Trump’s press release from his campaign website reads: “May 18, 2016 – Today Donald J. Trump released the much-anticipated list of people he would consider as potential replacements for Justice Scalia at the United States Supreme Court. This list was compiled, first and foremost, based on constitutional principles, with input from highly respected conservatives and Republican Party leadership.”
If one were to read this press release, one would assume, if Trump is elected, he will nominate one of these 11 to replace Justice Scalia. This is the implication as it is written.
If you just happened to instead be listening to conservative Trump Talk Radio, save for Glenn Beck and Mark Levin, it would be the only conclusion you could come to. This is the list, which was crafted by The Donald and we can all rest easy now that he has released such a list of constitutional jurists. This proves he is serious about restoring constitutional principles back to the high court. So there – all you haters!
