This has been the most transparent Supreme Court selection process in history
President Trump nominated Justice Neil Gorsuch to serve on the United States Supreme Court during a ceremony at the White House Tuesday night.
“When Justice Scalia passed away suddenly last February, I made a promise to the American people. If I were elected president, I would find the very best judge in the country for the Supreme Court. I promised to select someone who respects our laws and is representative of our constitution and who loves the constitution,” President Trump said. “I am a man of my word. I will do as I say. Something that the American people have been asking for from Washington for a very, very long time.”
Trump went on to say of Gorsuch’s qualifications, “I have selected an individual whose qualities define, really and I mean closely defined, what we are looking for. Judge Gorsuch has outstanding legal skills, a brilliant mind, tremendous discipline and has earned bipartisan support. When he was nominated to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, he was confirmed by the Senate unanimously.”
“The qualifications of Judge Gorsuch are beyond dispute. He’s the man of our country and a man who our country really needs and needs badly to ensure the rule of law and the rule of justice. I would only hope both Democrats and Republicans can come together for once for the good of the country,” Trump concluded.
