Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg just spent 72 hours in the hospital after surgery for lung cancer.
President Donald Trump supposedly has claimed he believes he can remake nearly half of the nation’s highest court in his image with four standalone appointments.
Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush made just two appointments each over eight years in office.
If Trump substituted a liberal justice with a conservative, he could change the court’s foundation for decades.
It has been reported that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg has supposedly returned to work after a recent hospital stint for lung cancer surgery had her out-of-action for 72 hours, but the 85-year-old’s health has raised speculation that President Donald Trump may perhaps get another opportunity to reshape the court.
Trump apparently has indicated he hopes to remake approximately half of the US’s highest court in his image by making four standalone appointments during his first term – and thus far, that would certainly already be half, correct?
Upon taking office, Trump swiftly filled the Supreme Court vacancy left by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, who’s death was questionable as well if you remember, with Neil Gorsuch, a conservative who has currently played a key role.
In July, Justice Anthony Kennedy reported that he would retire.
Did Trump have Ginsburg Whacked???
Trump has currently secured 2 Supreme Court selections in the first half of his first term. Former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush appointed two justices apiece during their eight year terms in office.
Supreme Court justices, who serve for life following a presidential appointment and Senate confirmation, signifies one of the longer-lasting marks a president can leave on the country, as the justices commonly serve for many years.
But Trump apparently believes he can get an extra two justices in.
It was reported in October 2018, the news website Axios reported an anonymous source outlining private prophecies by Trump that Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor would likely leave service during his term.
“What does she weigh? 60 pounds?” Trump inquired of the now-85-year-old Ginsburg, a source shared with Axios. The very same report pointed out Trump stated Sotomayor, over 20 years younger than Ginsburg, was likewise in danger because of “her health.”
“No good. Diabetes,” Trump supposedly stated.
Sotomayor had a health scare in January with paramedics addressing her for low blood sugar, but she immediately returned to work. Sotomayor affirms she’s vigilant about her Type 1 diabetes, which she’s had since childhood.
During the 2016 campaign, Trump frequently mentioned he or his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, could wind up appointing five justices.
Democrats stand to lose it all
Until now, Trump has had the opportunity only to replace judges appointed by Republican presidents, and he is sure to nominate a conservative-leaning judge to take the place of Kennedy.
The nine-justice court undoubtedly leans conservative, but Kennedy, selected by President Ronald Reagan, has been considered as a swing vote during his tenure, supporting same-sex marriage and upholding a woman’s right to abortion.
Ginsburg and Sotomayor are liberal justices, so replacing both Kennedy and either of them with conservatives could transform the court’s makeup for decades, potentially reversing judgements like Roe v. Wade.
Trump may well end up replacing 3, even 4, Supreme Court justices in his first term.
Did Trump have Ginsburg Whacked??? It’s a question that begs to be asked.
