BREAKING: Trump To Protect The Constitution For Good…Conservatives Are LOVING This!

President Donald Trump has come under harsh scrutiny this past weekend for an executive order he issued that temporarily restricts immigration from seven Muslim majority countries: Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.

The order Trump issued Friday is something he discussed throughout the waning months of the presidential campaign.

Trump’s harshest critics have called it a “Muslim ban,” even though more than 40 Muslim majority nations are not included in the order.

Now, the new president is going to follow up on another campaign promise: a nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States. Trump tweeted as much Monday morning:

Trump will make the announcement Tuesday at 8 pm ET from the White House. There are three possible nominees to succeed the late Justice Antonin Scalia: William Pryor, Neil Gorsuch and Thomas Hardiman. The Associated Press gives more background:

Pryor, 54, is an Alabama-based judge on the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Gorsuch, 49, is on the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and Hardiman, 51, sits on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Pittsburgh. All three were nominated by President George W. Bush for their current posts.

Trump has promised to seek someone in the mold of conservative icon Antonin Scalia, who died nearly a year ago after serving on the Supreme Court for more than 29 years. Senate Republicans prevented President Barack Obama from filling the seat, a political gamble that paid off when Trump was elected.

All three of these judges appear on Trump’s 21 list of judges he issued during the campaign. Trump’s older sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, serves with Hardiman on the 3rd Circuit.
