To follow up on yesterday, we thought we would break down some details of President Trump’s new list of judges. President Trump released his list because voters deserve a clear understanding of a candidate’s vision of the direction of the Supreme Court. Vice President Biden needs to explain what kind of judges he would select, for as President Trump stated: “Unfortunately, there is a growing radical-left movement that rejects the principle of equal treatment under law. If this extreme movement is granted a majority on the Supreme Court, it will fundamentally transform America without a single vote of Congress.”
Briefly on the new list. It includes three Senators, Tom Cotton, Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, who are very well known and leading conservatives. Instead let’s first focus on the current judges on the list:Read more
This afternoon, President Trump announced 20 additional distinguished attorneys and judges to the list of nominees he would consider for any future Supreme Court vacancy. Polling showed that then-candidate Trump's list in 2016 was important to many voters who supported him, and he kept his promise of choosing off the list when he nominated Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the Court. Further, President Trump selected from his list for many of his highly qualified nominees to lower federal courts during his first term, providing unprecedented transparency regarding judicial nominations from a presidential candidate.
By contrast, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has not released a list, nor has he indicated that he will release one, leaving voters to wonder whom he would consider for any Supreme Court vacancy. Would a President Biden choose off the troubling Demand Justice list or the secret Alliance for Justice list? Both possibilities should terrify any American who values the rule of law.Read more

Earlier today, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany announced that the President will soon be releasing an updated list of conservatives that he would consider nominating the Supreme Court. While Joe Biden told reporters in June that his team was putting together a list of Black women that he would consider nominating to the Court, we haven't heard any updates from him or his campaign.Read more
Yesterday, President Donald Trump visited Kenosha, Wisconsin to survey the damage caused be recent violent protests and to speak with community leaders. Attorney General Bill Barr and Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wold also joined the President on the visit. Their trip to Kenosha illustrates the President's commitment to public safety and law enforcement, while Joe Biden is unwilling to confront the reality that the far-left is fueling the fire — literally and figuratively — for violent protests across the country.Read more
The future of the federal courts has emerged yet again as a prominent issue in the 2020 presidential election. Democrats hope to enact "structural court reforms" if Joe Biden is elected in November. What does this mean? The official Democratic Party Platform endorses expanding the number of judges on the federal bench, and you guessed it, expanding the number of justices on the Supreme Court is also on the table.
In a recent op-ed for NBC, Deputy Campaign Manager and Senior Counsel to Trump 2020 Justin Clark detailed what Democratic control of judicial nominations would mean for the country:Read more

For the grand finale of an inspiring Republican National Convention, President Donald J. Trump officially accepted the Republican nomination for President in a speech at the White House. The RNC Convention was a roaring success. As Fox News' Liz Peek reported, "If the point of a political convention is to get your party’s message out, win over voters and boost your candidate’s prospects, then make no mistake about the 2020 conventions, Republicans absolutely buried Democrats."Read more
