He is IN!
He presented his choice in front of conservative and libertarian attorneys at a conference in Washington DC.
After unsuccessful primary campaign, Mr. Trump decides to forgive Sen. Ted Cruz for his mistakes. Ted Cruz has shown a noticeable willingness to serve on the U.S Supreme Court and substitute late Justice Antonin Scalia.
Despite that he was not on the list of the 21 potential nominees, President Trump has decided to grant this position to this man for his superb qualities. Besides the rumors that this is an act of contention, the transition team has not confirmed if he is being “vetted” for the position.
“What I will say is that history is long and can take unexpected paths,” he said in response to an audience question about his filling the place. “I think it is absolutely vital that that seat and every other seat that comes vacant on the court be filled by principled constitutionalists who will be faithful to the law and will check their own policy preferences at the door and simply honor their oath.”
“I can also tell you that I have right now the privilege of serving in the United States Senate, of representing 27 million Texans,” he said. “That is a privilege and a responsibility I take very, very seriously. And I look forward to continuing to carry out that responsibility and continuing to fight for the principles of freedom and the principles embodied in the Constitution and Bill of Rights,” he added, reported The Daily Caller.
After his remarks, the senator told reporters that he is determined to see, “A strong conservative constitutionalist confirmed to the Supreme Court, and that across the board we continue to deliver on the promises we made to the voters throughout this election.”
Right after the statement, he told the media that he is willing to see “A strong conservative constitutionalist confirmed to the Supreme Court, and that across the board we continue to deliver on the promises we made to the voters throughout this election.”
Just a man for the job. Well done Mr. President on trusting your instincts!
