Judiciary Still a Leading Reason to Vote Trump

His impressive record on nominating originalist judges only bolsters the argument.

Just as with the 2016 presidential election, one of the primary arguments for casting a vote in favor of President Donald Trump no matter one’s view of his character remains the judiciary. Indeed, those who cast a vote for Trump based upon this rationale have not been disappointed. His impressive record over his first term of consistently nominating constitutionally committed judges only serves to justify their decision. Now, with the 2020 election looming, a Trump reelection presents the very real prospect for a near-total remaking of the current composition of the federal appeals courts — with perhaps a majority of judges being constitutionally committed conservatives.

“In President Trump’s second term, Republicans could take control of all 13 of the critically important U.S. Courts of Appeals, the last stop for 99 percent of all federal appeals,” notes Article III Project president Mike Davis. In fact, he added, “If President Trump is reelected, he could do the unthinkable for a Republican and flip the Ninth Circuit to conservative control.”

Furthermore, a Trump reelection will likely result in a larger conservative majority in the highest court in the land, the U.S. Supreme Court, due to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s almost certain retirement given her age and ongoing health issues.

The only thing that could derail Trump’s continuing progress in remaking the judiciary should he win a second term would be Republicans losing control of the Senate. Of course, the worst-case scenario would be a Joe Biden victory coupled with the Democrats taking over the Senate, as Biden (and then a President Kamala Harris) will endeavor to reverse the progress Trump has made in the courts.

It’s once again pretty simple: One of the best arguments in favor of voting for Trump is the judiciary, and this time he has a record supporting him.
