New Additions To Trump Supreme Court List Show Changing Reelection Politics

Names signal shift from populism to coalition politicking
Kevin Daley - SEPTEMBER 13, 2020 4:58 AM

President Donald Trump's latest additions to his list of prospective Supreme Court nominees reveal the changing politics of his bid for reelection.

The first roster, released in May 2016, complemented Trump's populist campaign, featuring just one Ivy Leaguer among 11 jurists from the heartland. In contrast, Wednesday's list includes three powerful Republican senators, six current or former administration officials, and many candidates tied to the religious right, a constituency essential for Trump's continued electoral success.

Wednesday's additions suggest a shift away from insurgent populism toward conventional coalition politicking. With this latest cohort, the administration seems to be highlighting its own standouts, paying respects to Senate allies, and reassuring social conservatives piqued by recent Supreme Court decisions favoring abortion and LGBT rights. All told, the new names indicate an evolution toward a more familiar governing style.

No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.
