Trump’s Supreme Court Plans Would Set Us Back Decades

If you suspect that behind the ravenous ego of Donald Trump is a moderate of sorts who, despite his vulgarity, might steer the Republican party away from the extreme right, think again.

The GOP frontrunner has announced that if he’s president (‘yuge if), any Supreme Court nominee he presents will be pre-approved by the Heritage Foundation, an antigay, anti-immigrant think tank.

Trump says he’ll be releasing a list of ten prospective nominees, all of whom have been hand-selected through the group.

It’s a move that squarely shuts down the idea that Trump is more of a centrist on social issues like gay marriage and abortion.

“I’m going to submit a list of justices, potential justices of the United States Supreme Court, that I will appoint from the list,” Trump said Monday in Washington, D.C. “I won’t go beyond that list. Some people say maybe I’ll appoint a liberal judge. I’m not appointing a liberal judge.”

The Heritage Foundation was founded in 1973 by conservative businessmen and politicians who thought Nixon was too liberal. Since then it has moved even further to the right, and has grown into a massive organization with revenues topping $100 million.

The organization came under scrutiny in 2013 after a senior fellow who wrote a report on immigration was revealed to have previously stated that Blacks and Hispanics are intellectually inferior.

Reason 14,002,285 to keep Trump as far away from the White House as possible.
