Republican front-runner Donald Trump seems to be very confident in his chances at winning the General Election. Today, he released a list with 11 judges who he considers for nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court if he will be elected president, says The Washington Post.
Trump finally did it
The same source, citing a report from The Associated Press, says that the names on the businessman’s list are Steven Colloton of Iowa, Allison Eid of Colorado, Raymond Gruender of Missouri, Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania, Raymond Kethledge of Michigan, Joan Larsen of Michigan, Thomas Lee of Utah, William Pryor of Alabama, David Stras of Minnesota, Diane Sykes of Wisconsin and Don Willett of Texas.
This doesn’t come as a surprise, as Donald Trump promised to released his list with Supreme Court nominees back in March, after Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who was then his main opponent in the Republican race for the White House, claimed that the businessman wasn’t a true conservative.
Take that, Ted Cruz!
Even more, Cruz warned the GOP that Donald Trump is planning to appoint liberal judges for Supreme Court. His response came quickly, saying that, alongside Heritage Foundation, he was already working at his list with nominees and he will only pick from those people.
Five of Trump’s nominees are already on state supreme courts, while the rest are serving on United States circuit courts of appeals.
