Contrary to popular opinion, Donald Trump does not wish Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ill will or ill health.
When recently asked about the notorious RBG’s health problems, Trump said frankly: “Look, I hope that she’s healthy, I hope she’s happy, and I hope she lives for a long time.”
Supreme Court Legacy
Donald Trump has so far been able to appoint two Supreme Court justices to the bench.
If he were able to appoint a third, particularly in place of a justice that leans conservative, it would be a monumental victory for conservatives.
But that doesn’t mean Trump wishes ill will on the justice.
Indeed, despite liberal reports that would have you believe that Trump sits in his private residence night after night with a voodoo doll hoping to put a spell on the justice to get her to step down, Trump wants Ginsburg to live a healthy, long life.
List at the Ready
Still, with many justices nearing or passed retirement age, President Trump is prepared to name a new nominee.
He has compiled a list of potential candidates and even released it to the public in hopes of getting a feel for how Americans feel about the contenders.
This list includes names like Amul Thapar, Raymond Kethledge, and Amy Coney Barrett, who was also a candidate for the seat eventually given to Brett Kavanaugh.
He also included Britt Grant, Thomas Hardiman, and Joan Larsen.
There are also whispers that Trump could add Neomi Rao to the list.
Rao is set to take over the seat vacated by Kavanaugh when he accepted his appointment to the Supreme Court.
Whoever the president eventually chooses, they’re sure to be qualified to serve.
