In response to Donald Trump’s plans to release a shortlist of his potential Supreme Court nominees, DNC spokesperson Aida Ross released the following statement:

“Here’s what to expect on Donald Trump’s shortlist of potential Supreme Court nominees: ultra-MAGA judicial extremists who will endanger our fundamental freedoms. Trump’s last Supreme Court picks ended up overturning Roe v. Wade, paving the way for Republicans to enact abortion bans across the country which are threatening life-saving health care and access to IVF. No matter who is on Trump’s list, voters see right through his attempts to stack the bench with his MAGA loyalists — and will reject him again in November all the same.”

After appointing three anti-choice justices to the bench during his first term, Trump wants to stack the Supreme Court with ultra-MAGA picks who will do his bidding.

Washington Times: “Former President Donald Trump is working on a new list of 20 potential picks for the Supreme Court should he be reelected in November, The Washington Times has learned.

“The move revives a strategy he used to help win over conservatives in the 2016 election, which led to his reshaping the high court and the federal judiciary more broadly.”

“‘I’m going to be putting together a list of judges — great judges — a list of about 20. I think it’s important to reveal who your Supreme Court justices will be,’ Mr. Trump told The Times on Tuesday. ‘There are people who say the list helped me win the election last time.’”

Trump: “And when I’m back in the White House, I will once again appoint rock-solid conservative judges in the mold of justices like Antonin Scalia and the great Clarence Thomas. … And before Election Day 2024, I will again release the full list of names from which I will select my appointments to the United States Supreme Court.”

Politico: “Trump has made clear he expects unfleeting loyalty from the judges he appointed, referring to them as ‘my judges’ and grousing publicly when they ruled against his administration. ‘If it’s my judges, you know how they’re gonna decide,’ Trump assured evangelical leaders during the 2016 campaign.”

Trump brags about how the Supreme Court justices he appointed overturned Roe v. Wade, paving the way for MAGA extremists to pass abortion bans across the country and rip away reproductive freedoms.

CNBC: “Former President Donald Trump called Friday’s Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade ‘the biggest WIN for LIFE in a generation’ — and gave himself credit for the outcome in the controversial decision to undo federal abortion rights.” 

“Trump, in a statement, said Friday’s ruling and other recent court decisions ‘were only made possible because I delivered everything as promised, including nominating and getting three highly respected and strong Constitutionalists confirmed to the United States Supreme Court.’”

Trump: “I’m the one that got rid of Roe v. Wade, and everybody said that was an impossible thing to do. I put on three Supreme Court justices. Very few people have had that privilege or honor.”

Trump campaign radio ad: “And Trump nominated conservative judges, leading to Roe v. Wade being overturned.”

Trump: “After 50 years of failure, with nobody coming even close, I was able to kill Roe v. Wade, much to the ‘shock’ of everyone … Without me there would be no 6 weeks, 10 weeks, 15 weeks, or whatever is finally agreed to. Without me the pro Life movement would have just kept losing. Thank you President TRUMP!!!”

Business Insider: “Trump boasts he’s ‘proud’ about his role in overturning Roe v. Wade, the issue that has become ballot-box poison for Republicans”

Trump also wants to appoint extremist judges to courts across the country and put fundamental freedoms at risk — just like he brags about doing in his first term.

Trump: “We appointed nearly 300 federal judges and three great Supreme Court justices. Gotten some great rulings. Oh, they would go crazy every time they saw me appointing a Supreme Court judge.” [VIDEO]

Trump: “I promised to appoint true conservative justices to the United States Supreme Court and I did that, three of them. And over 300 federal judges. The whole court system is different.” [VIDEO]

NBC: “The decision by a Trump-appointed federal judge in Texas could upend access nationwide to the standard two-pill regimen for medication abortions.”

CNN: “A Trump-appointed judge dealt another blow to Biden’s climate agenda on Friday, barring the administration from using a metric that estimates the societal cost of carbon emissions.”

“This is not the first time a Trump-appointed judge has dealt a blow to the Biden administration’s climate goals. In June, another federal judge in Louisiana blocked Biden’s temporary pause on new oil and gas leasing on federal lands – saying Biden had exceeded his authority.”
