Trump is ready to nominate new Supreme Court justice before 2020 election, says WH

There has been a lot of chatter recently about potential Supreme Court vacancies before the 2020 election, with some speculating that Justice Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito might be ready to retire in the near future. 

After Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg announced that she is battling her fifth round of cancer last week, the rumors began to swirl once more. At 87 years old, Ginsburg refuses to take any steps towards retiring, but the possibility that she may be forced to step down is more likely now than ever.

The White House and the GOP-controlled Senate have confirmed that if a vacancy were to arise before the November election, President Trump is ready to fill the seat despite Democrat objections.

“I can’t imagine that if [Trump] had a vacancy on the Supreme Court that he would not very quickly make the appointment and look for the Senate to take quick action,” White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said on Wednesday.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) confirmed earlier this year that he will prioritize confirming a Supreme Court nomination if given the opportunity, even with just months to go before the election.

Donald Trump also announced in June that he would soon release a new list of potential Supreme Court justices in the coming months. He has yet to release any names, but they are likely to be conservative nominees. President Trump has already made two SCOTUS appointments, a major boon for his strategy of placing conservative-leaning judges in courts nationwide.

Ginsburg said on Friday that she is receiving chemotherapy treatment for liver cancer and that she has every intention of continuing her duties on the bench. “I have often said I would remain a member of the Court as long as I can do the job full steam. I remain fully able to do that,” she said.

  1. Justice Ginsberg should retire, it can’t be good for her health to remain on the court. Chemo therapy is no fun, it makes one sick and she needs to rest. At her age, she should try to enjoy the time she has left.

      1. My response did not get published there so I’m going to say it again it sounds to me like Miss Ginsberg is in denial she is a great person I know that I just giving this country a lot she’s got a lot of grit a lot of grit I appreciate that but she should retire she should kick back drink some coffee and smell the roses.

        1. Theodore I agree at her advanced age and alement she should i hope call it a day and step down and let our president pick a canidate, the left will scream and howler but t

      1. I would have to agree with you on that. I pray that she rests in peace and we have a conservative in her place.

    1. She is doing nothing on the court for the past 3 years just taking space for pictures . She’s been in treatment and not able to attend in person but sometimes by phone or give her vote on frivolous matters to another C. Justice

      1. She sleeps the whole time she is in the courtroom & doesn’t contribute other then taking up space! I wish her well, but she needs to go!

        1. You took the words right out of my mouth…..I say, sleepy Ruth. She really needs to retire & enjoy the rest of her life in retirement.

        1. Exactly and THAT is no reason to remain. Justice Gingsburg deserves all the honors she gets even though I disagree with almost all her opinions but it is time for her to go, actually, well past time.

    2. AMERICANS WE HAVE TO TAKE BACK OUR AMERICA FROM THE EVIL CRIMINAL ACTS OF DEMOCRATS………………………..TO SOLVE AMERICAS PROBLEMS MAKE THIS CHOICE WE THE PEOPLE’ HAVE THE POWER OF OUR VOICES AND OUR VOTES, TO VOTE OUT THE ENTIRE LYING,CORRUPT, TREASONOUS DEMOCRAT PARTY COME NOV 2020, VOTE TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND TO END ALL CORRUPTIONS IN WASHINGTON GOVERNMENT
      “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).

      1. I agree with you all the way! I am all for voting out all the demonRats they are nothing but a thorn in the side of America and our democracy! President Trump and the other elected republican’s move America forward and the demonRats do something to harm our movement.So we as Americans have to remove the thorn which is the demonRats ‼️Wakeup America and Vote Republican🇺🇸

      2. bren n texas, I don’t even trust the votes that will come in in Nov. Democrats will do anything to win. Our voting is in trouble because Democrats plan to control it. It will not be fair if they get their way. Look at how they can’t let the 2016 vote go!

      1. Being a SCJ is NO PLACE for anyone who is a die-hard left or right winger. You should be able to rule based on the US Constitution ONLY!

    3. She won’t retire willingly until their is a Dem in the White House to nominate another Liberal to replace her. A lot of Liberal groups are saying she should have retired when Barack was in the White House, but she wanted to stay and thought there was no possible way that Trump would win the Presidency. Like most, she was wrong (thank God)! Now she is sick and a Republican in the White House, She waited too long and now she might not be able to wait President Trump out, especially when he wins in November! She may just be SOL!

      1. Should by some miricle Biden actually win the election RBG would immediately retire. Still that WILL NOT HAPPEN. Trump will win again and RBG will end up dying in Officer rathe than step down as she should.

    4. I understand her not wanting to retire. Someone should make the decision for her. The court is more important than her desire to continue working.

    5. but demoncrats like her have no life of their own. Thats why they spend all their time and energy trying to destroy the lives of others.

    6. plus cancer in the liver spreads too thye brain very quickly and too other parts of the body,shes just defying Trump,she should be forced too step down,the games these democrats play.my son had cancer in his liver and it rapidly spread too his brain
      and he wasnt in his right mind

    7. GINSBERG NEEDS TO GO. THATS ALL SHE DOES BUT SLEEPS ON THE JOB. AND GETTING PAID FOR NOTHING. I HOPE HER WELL BUT LADY GINSBERG ITS YOUR TIME TO RETIRE. ENJOY THE REST OF YOUR LIFE DOING OTHER THINGS TO ENJOY YOUR LIFE. TAKE TIME OUT TO SPEND TIME WITH SOME FAMILY YOU HAVE AND RETIRE. GOD BLESS YOU OUR PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU.

  2. IT’S time for Ginsberg to retire, 5 bouts with Cancer poor woman, 87 and fighting hard. Take the time you have left and enjoy your family.

      1. Trey would be the best person for the job. I love the way he can recall all details of every conversation. He always has the best and most important questions when someone has to testify. And he has no problem asking the HARD QUESTIONS.

    1. It’s about power and like all democraps she will not relinquish that power till they wheel her corps out on a stretcher

  3. President Trump can & should make new appointment to the court now. I know no matter how good they are it will still be Democrats who try to stop it. Go Trump go

  4. SHE KNOWS CONSERVATIVES WILL RULE THE SUPREME COURT ONCE SHE QUITS. AND THE DEMONCRATS ARE PRESSURING NOT TO GIVE THE CONSERVATIVES A HIGHER MAJORITY

  5. We appteciate all this great warrior has done, but there comes a time for her to step aside and let some new blood continue on. May God bless her gallant soul.

  6. Holding down the Fort is commendable, however, a possible additional 4 more years of President Trump’s Administration will pay a heavy price for trying to do just that, holding down the Fort. At 87+ of age, Justice Ginsberg, will be 91+, can she withstand the normal rigger of daily activity, let alone the pressures of The Bench. I hope that commonsence prevails, that She opt to retire and enjoys possible years thereafter. I pray for her well being, a Republican. Francis P. Santos

  7. I ilke this post:
    ” “I have often said I would remain a member of the Court as long as I can do the job full steam. I remain fully able to do that,” she said.”
    At home is not under “full steam”! (and having aides write decisions is not either).

  8. maybe the job is all she has. I can relate to that. I had to retire at age 47 due to accident. I know what a horrible thing it is to feel useless. at least she can feel that she is contributing. but at her age, and with all she has wrong, it would be a blessing if she could just walk away…

    1. Well realistically she is useless to the USofA as a Supreme Court Justice if you think about it. This lady can pass at any time, she can’t do her job if she isn’t there to do it. It seems to me to do a job as important as a Supreme Justice you have to be there to participate.

  9. Maybe NOT retiring is what is keeping her alive,
    You know.?
    At her age & as long as she has been there, it might actually throw her into a depression that would be the death of her.
    That would be an incredible adjustment for her

  10. Charles says:
    Cancer is not Republican or Democrat, and it knows “No” compassion for it’s victims. We have all seen and lost family and friends, who suffered with this terrible debilitating sickness. I am a Republican and would it help to appoint another conservative to this Supreme Court, you bet, but can I impose my wish on this Great Lady, who has sacrificed so much for so long, who has battled our judgements that rise to this court, “No”. She is a dedicated “Servant” in the highest court in our nation and I wish her God’s speed, and no malice, as she continues her battle to triumph again. No, God will ultimately determine when her successor will be needed and appointment required.

  11. Great SCOTUS replacements could be conservative Judge Jeanine Pirro, Attys. Sidney Powell, Trey Gowdy,
    centrist Prof. Jonathan Turley but not aged Alan Derschowitz.
    Ginzburg is past her prime, should retire gracefully.

  12. There should be age limit in the supreme court system for retirement to retire at certain age.
    Like maybe 70 .

  13. Ginsburg is fulfilling the democratic creed and that is die on the bench! There ought to be a retirement age, say 72 years old. Kinda like after that, senility creeps in like it has with Ginsberg.

  14. She might be a tough cookie, but it’s a shame that she will never enjoy knowing how great it is to retire and enjoy life. It couldn’t be that she needs the money, but I think it’s a real shame that she would never be able to enjoy life. I can’t see the point of working till you absolutely can’t work like you did 20 or 30yrs ago. Wishing her well.

  15. As a stage four cancer survivor I KNOW how sick and disabling chemotherapy makes you—It is time for Ruth Bader Ginsburg to step down and try to enjoy what time she has left—Despite what she claims, she can’t POSSIBLY fulfill her duties as a supreme court justice any longer—she’s only playing politics now.

    1. I commend you, for your ‘REALISTIC SUMMATION”. She MOST CERTAINLY
      CANNOT FULFILL HER DUTIES IN ANY SENSE OF THE WORD….87 YRS. OLD AND 5 CANCER SURGERIES, ETC. JUST NOT HUMANLY POSSIBLE.

      MAYBE SHE IS A “DOUBLE” AFTER ALL.

      SOMETHING IS DEFINITELY “FISHY” (ROTTEN IN DENMARK) HERE.

  16. You know she is selfish even at her age and health still keeping her bench because of politics. She loves politics than her life. I think American citizens who loves this country can force to petition her to step down for reasons!

  17. Ginsburg should know by now it’s time to quit….too old and not in good health!
    Judge Jeanine and Trey Gowdy would be wonderful replacements.
    Trump 2020

  18. What’s with all the SOBBING, she’s sick & it’s time for her to “HIT THE SILK”, but she’s already stated that she’s not gong to retire while TRUMP is in office, so it’s all about Liberal politics, she’s only 2 years older than I am, & I’m in excellent health because my whole life I’ve tried to build AMERICA up, not hold a bitter grudge against it with Liberal ideals… Hopefully PRESIDENT TRUMP will be reelected, & if she’s holding out hoping for Groper Joe to win & he doesn’t it will probably kill her anyway… If the Groper should happen to win, there’s no way that he will last for 4 years before his mind goes, so whomever he chooses for VP will become President & Piglosi will become VP!
    GO TRUMP FOR 4 MORE!

  19. Justice Ginsburg should retire immediatly.She is hardly able to take care of herself,let alone makw rational decisions.

  20. She should’ve already left.God bless her but she thought it was ok for 12yr.old girls to get married. I love Justice Thomas don’t go. Sidney Powell for SC.We also need a Baptist or Penecostal canadate Enough Catholics just saying.

  21. Hard to see how justice Ginsburg can serve on the court effectively considering her health and the kemo she is taking. She just may not be able to hold out for a democrat president to be elected in order to keep the court liberal. WE do not need political jurist but we do need jurist that know and cherish our constitution who will rule on it instead of creating new laws illegally from the bench.

  22. Unless RBG is unable to perform her duties and is “quietly” pressured out of her Justice seat by the other Justices, I fully expect her to “quietly” expire in her chair at work…….at which time we will get a “news alert” informing us.

  23. It is about time that Americans stand up for Americans the democrats seem to forget that they work for us, we don’t work for them, remember they work for us we don’t work for them. President Trump will win again and they will have to fight the corrupt Democrats for another four years but as always he will win with GOD and our support.

  24. Number one: reelect DT. Number two: get her to retire or leave, her days as a SCJ are done: number 3: nominate a new judge (and remember Bork!) If we can,in fact, give DT 4 more years, we could have all 3 branches under Rep. Control. That will stop this blm crap as well as the Chinese flu, watch and see
