President Trump Nominates Conservative Female Judges for U.S. Supreme Court Justice or September 26 at 11:25 a.m.
Major U.S. media outlets have reported that President Trump intends to nominate a new judge in the U.S. Supreme Court to be a conservative female judge critical of abortions and other issues, and the announcement on July 27 in Japan time is the focus.
In the United States, Judge Ginsburg, a liberal in the U.S. Supreme Court, has passed away, and President Trump is expected to nominate a successor judge on Monday morning.
Major U.S. media reported today that President Trump intends to nominate Judge Amy Connie Barrett of the U.S. Court of Appeals, the High Court, according to officials.
Mr. Barrett is 48 years old. He is said to be a respected Catholic with seven children and a conservative judge critical of abortion and gun control.
In response to the report, President Trump told reporters, “We have already made a decision. I’m not saying it’s her, but she’s excellent,” he said, but didn’t say whether he would nominate Mr. Barrett.
The appointment of a new judge requires approval by the Senate, but if approved, conservatives will make up six of the nine judges in the U.S. Supreme Court.
President Trump has indicated that he needs to decide on a new judge before the election, referring to the possibility of a court battle over the outcome of November’s presidential election, and the announcement on November 27 is the focus.
