Elizabeth Warren @SenWarren Trump made a bargain in 2016: support him and he would let right-wing, pro-corporate groups hand-pick their favorites for the Supreme Court. Trump has dutifully pulled all his nominees' names straight off the extremist-approved list.https://thefederalist.com/2020/09/24/why-trumps-honor-demands-he-pick-a-supreme-court-nominee-from-his-2016-list/
Elizabeth Warren @SenWarren Trump is often reckless and unpredictable, but when it comes to the courts, he has let Mitch McConnell run the show, methodically working with his right-wing overlords to flood the judicial system with narrow-minded lawyers who work for the wealthy and well-connected.
