Trump confirms Supreme Court nominee will be a woman

Donald Trump announced on Saturday that he will reveal his Supreme Court choice within the coming days, and that whomever he chooses will most likely be a woman. 

Trump told supporters at a rally in Fayetteville that it can’t be “more clear” that he has the power and the obligation to fill the Supreme Court vacancy ahead of the election in November.

“That’s what we’re going to do, we’re going to fill that seat,” Trump confirmed. “It will be a woman — a very talented, very brilliant woman.”

This announcement significantly narrows the playing field, as Trump’s list of potential nominees released last week included several male senators that have clearly been ruled out.

According to Fox News, Trump has likely narrowed the contenders down to Judges Amy Coney Barrett in Chicago and Barbara Lagoa in Atlanta.

Barrett currently occupies a seat on the Chicago-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. She is a strongly conservative, pro-life Roman Catholic who clerked for late Justice Antonin Scalia after she graduated from law school.

Lagoa’s judicial history includes a decade-long stint on Florida’s 3rd District Court of Appeals before briefly serving on the state’s Supreme Court. In 2019, Trump nominated her to the Atlanta-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. Lagoa is a member of the Federalist Society, but her conservative credentials are not as well-established as Barrett’s.

Trump told supporters to expect an official decision within the next week.

  1. President Trump can fill that seat n it’s a must. Not an option. Despite democrats wanting to wait until after the election it’s a responsibility that should be filled now

    1. FOLKS, get ready for a very hard week ahead. The Democrats will promote riots and violence but we ALL need too stand strong like never before. Our President is trying to do his best and he will need all of our support.

      1. Our President has done more for the People, then the last 3. The Constitution is what President Trump, is reading and following. So, be ready for the fall out on whoever the President names. This is going to be another “dig up the dirt” confirmation hearing, just like the last one….

          1. WHAT EVER HAPENED TO THE IDEA OF PICKING THE MOST QUALIFIED PERSON? DOES IT MATTER IF THEY SIT OR STAND TO PISS?

    1. Pissing them off will just be a side-benefit. They’ll piss and moan whatever he does. My militia will be standing by to defend the President. And kill the commies!

  2. YES, YES, YES please have it be Amy we need the democrats heads to explode, I wish we can remove all the democratic placed judges Obama placed specifically the judges who release hardened criminals back onto the streets like we’re seeing being done in NYC and other democratic run cities. These judges need to be removed permanently.

    1. What we don’t want is a luke warm sometime Catholic, what we need is a strong Catholic Woman with a history of pro-life and the constitution behind her thoughts.

        1. I agree Sharon…I believe we could do better! But then, the Dems may not approve…..but they will not approve of ANY of these that would be voted on.

  3. Judge Amy Barrett now please the judge demonized for her faith overturn roe v Wade stop murder of defenseless babies an abomination before God!

  4. If Barrett is nominated and any of the hypocrites in the senate complained because she is a Catholic. The hypocrites need to be reminded that Creepy Joe & Crazy Nancy claim to be Catholics. Why isn’t anyone in Congress complaining about them being Catholic?

  5. WE “NEED” TO HAVE A “FULL” Supreme Court……….ESPECIALLY BECAUSE “ROBERTS” IS A TURNCOAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!THE DEMS JUST WANT TO HAVE CONTROL!!!!!!!! HOPEFULLY IT WILL NOT WORK THAT WAY!!!!!!!!!!! THE DEMS ARE ALREADY THINKING UP WAYS FOR CHARGES OF ANY KIND. ON EVERYONE AND ANYONE!!!!!!! THAT THEY CAN THINK OF??????? THE COURTS BETTER THINK BEFORE ANY SERVINGS……THIS TIME………LETS NOT REPEAT WHAT THE DEMS DID BEFORE??????????? BE ON GUARD!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY ARE ROTTEN!!!!!!! TO THE CORE!!!!!!!

    1. I think the Dems murdered Scalia just so Obama could nominate a Supreme Ct. Justice, but in that case, it was not right to do so. This round, the court needs to be filled; the Dems are going to try to do any/every dirty, nasty thing they can dream up to destroy the proper counting of this election.

      1. ONE TIME, just ONCE, I saw an article about a pilot who flew one of the planes over Texas the fateful night that Justice S. was m u r d e r e d !!!!! I say, one of the planes, because sometimes there are TWO AF1’s flown, so that if someone wants to shoot the plane out of the sky, they won’t know which one the ‘president’ is on …. and o bam bam was on board alone with Justice S !!!!! just for a short time, then a few hours later, he was gone !!!! does ANDREW BREITBART ring a bell ????? he had a short meeting with billy bob ayers and died on his way home from the restaurant ….. and the ME who did his autopsy died before he could release the findings !!!!! a secret poison slipped into water or something ???? and since they DID do an autopsy on AB, they needed to get Justice S. cremated quickly before that could happen again !!!!! WHO calls a doctor & tells him that they found someone dead, what does the doctor think killed him, without doing a physical exam of that person ????? WHO calls the deceased’s family & tells them he should be cremated, and they give their permission ?!?!?!?!??! o bam bam & his band of merry thugs, that’s who !!!!!

  6. I AM HAVING A PROBLEM UNDERSTANDING ALL THIS!!! WHAT DOES ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD HAVE TO DO WITH WHAT THE TRUE AMERICANS WANT FOR THEIR COUNTRY ? OUR MONEY IS BEING WASTED ON ADS/TV/SIGNS/LAWSUITS ETC. WHY IS OUR VOTE NOT ENOUGH? LETS MAKE IT ENOUGH!! NOW!!! WE KNOW WHAT WE WANT LETS FIGHT TO GET IT !!!

  7. Barrett appears to be the best choice, bieng catholic isn’t the issue, following the constitution and the rule of law and non partisan is. We do not need another left leaning justice like Roberts. We need a Supreme Court that is not political, will follow the constitution and the rule of law, and judge in a non partisan manner. The Supreme Court is supposed to uphold the law and the constitution, not bend or make a new law. A judge like Scalia would be a good choice. Barrett appears to fit the bill. Impartiality is the key word, judge on the facts, not partisan notions.

  8. Catholics are not the most well versed people on The Word of God. Many do not study or read His Word to understand Who He really is and the character of His Son. Many have not accepted Christ as their personal Savior. I would feel better with a born again, evangelical Christian chosen, but I do hope I am wrong concerning these candidates…and I pray that they will remember Whose they are and Who placed them in the position they will have. I pray they will bring honor and glory to the Lord in all of their decisions they make.

  9. It is his responsibility, AND HIS RIGHT! The DEMS are always trying to take away his rights, not only as a President, but as a citizen. I guess they feel he does not deserve the rights of every other President because he does not support turning our country into a communist dictatorship. All you have to do is look at what outrageous MANDATES the DEMS forced upon citizens using the Wuhan Virus as an excuse to know that under this current batch of elitist, liberal power hungry DEMS we would lose every right we have. I have worked in Communist China often over the last 20 years and I can tell you from experience, YOU DON’T WANT A COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP. These people are mentally ill as they think the voters are ignorant savages who can not be trusted to make their own decisions on anything! It is great he plans on nominating a woman as the DEMS will really have a hard time coming up with someone willing to lie to Congress about her being a serial rapist! FORD NEEDS TO GO TO JAIL!

  10. With the Democratic party pulling their hair out it seems it was attached to their brains , their horrific scene of humanity is our downfall , be sure of what you want , and you know the democrates won’t deliver . If they win we’ll need another normal thinking person in the supreme court . I’m voting for Donald Trump and Mike Pence . A man who delivers on what he says . Usually Politician’s never do !

  11. My Pick would be BARRETT. But the confirmation will be difficult regardless of who the president nominates. It’s for sure Susan Collins and Mitt Romney will go against the president and more may join them. They have turned into a bunch of gutless wonders.

  12. What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. Since Mitch McConnell is that brilliant let’s follow his advice from four years ago and let the election decide who gets to name the next Supreme Court Justice. That would take some intellectual integrity, of course.

  13. The Democratics can’t win this election they know it. President Trump will fill the seat on the court and there’s nothing the Democratics can do about it. They have crossed the line with the American people and they will pay the price on November 3
