During the 2016 election, President Donald Trump provided assurance to pro-life voters that he would select friendly justices to the Supreme Court by issuing a list of top potential Supreme Court picks well in advance of actually making a nomination. The list was very well-received and pro-life groups appreciated knowing the direction Trump was headed and having the ability to vet the possible nominees in advance.

Today, President Trump renewed his promise to provide a list of possible high court selections, saying a newly-revised list in advance of a potential second term is in the offing.

Trump announced Thursday on Twitter that he will releasthe new list of potential nominees to the Supreme Court soon.

“I will be releasing a new list of Conservative Supreme Court Justice nominees, which may include some, or many of those already on the list, by September 1, 2020. If given the opportunity, I will only choose from this list, as in the past, a Conservative Supreme Court Justice…” Trump tweeted.

Trump’s announcement comes after two Supreme Court decisions that upset conservative voters because of Republican-appointed judges, especially Chief Justice John Roberts, legislating from the bench.

He cited the decisions in association with the announcement of the revised list.

“These horrible & politically charged decisions coming out of the Supreme Court are shotgun blasts into the face of people that are proud to call themselves Republicans or Conservatives,” the president tweeted. “We need more Justices or we will lose our 2nd. Amendment & everything else. Vote Trump 2020!”

Some of the possible names on the new list include U.S. 7th Circuit Judge Amy Coney Barrett, 3rd Circuit Court Judge Tom Hardiman, as well as 6th Circuit Court Judges Raymond Kethledge, Joan Larsen, and Amul Thapar. Pro-life voters are particularly hopeful for Judge Barrett, who is a staunch pro-life advocate.
