Schumer Statement On Pres. Trump’s Updated List Of Potential Radical Right-Wing SCOTUS Nominees

September 9, 2020

Washington, D.C. – Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding President Trump’s release of an updated list of potential nominees to the Supreme Court:

“The names on President Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees are exactly the types of justices the majority of Americans don’t want on the high court.  He has worked hand-in-hand with right-wing groups to pack the bench with Supreme Court justices and lower court judges who represent big special interests rather than the interests of the American people. It is clear that his Supreme Court nominees would undermine every priority middle class Americans care about. These radical nominees would continue the effort to reverse important progress America has made over the last 50 years on women’s reproductive freedom, strip away critical healthcare protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions, and gut labor, environmental, and civil rights.”
