President Trump nominated Barrett to the Supreme Court

Published on

President Donald Trump has nominated Amy Connie Barrett to fill a Supreme Court seat vacated following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Jeansberg.

Barrett, a judge of the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Justice based in Chicago and a devout Roman Catholic, was praised on the right by religious conservatives and others. She became the clerk, the ideological heir to the conservative leader Antonin Scalia.

But the Liberals say her legal views greatly influence her religious beliefs and that going to the country’s highest court could reduce her hard-fought abortion rights.

President Trump praised Miss Barrett as “a woman of remarkable intelligence and character” who said she had studied her record carefully before being elected.

“I looked and learned, you are very qualified,” he said as Miss Barrett stood by her side in the Rose Garden.

Ms Barrett was considered a finalist in 2018 before President Trump nominated Justice Brett Cavanaugh for the vacant seat when Justice Anthony Kennedy retired.

At just 48 years old, Miss Barrett will be the youngest righteous, and her term will last for decades.
