I like Mr. Trump’s initial list of Supreme Court candidates. Take note of the number of candidates who have clerked for either Justice Clarence Thomas or the iconic Justice Antonin Scalia. Donald Trump has put a great foot forward with conservatives. Here is his foundation statement:
Justice Scalia was a remarkable person and a brilliant Supreme Court Justice. His career was defined by his reverence for the Constitution and his legacy of protecting Americans’ most cherished freedoms. He was a Justice who did not believe in legislating from the bench and he is a person whom I held in the highest regard and will always greatly respect his intelligence and conviction to uphold the Constitution of our country. The following list of potential Supreme Court justices is representative of the kind of constitutional principles I value and, as President, I plan to use this list as a guide to nominate our next United States Supreme Court Justices.
