Trump advisor: He will follow Constitution today, win in November

Supreme Court sunriseAn advisor to President Donald Trump says the American public supports the President’s plan to nominate a U.S. Supreme Court justice and will prove their support on Election Day.

“People place the responsibility for selecting Supreme Court justices in the hands of the president, whom they elect, and the Senate whom they elect,” says Dr. Robert Jeffress, the pastor of First Baptist Church-Dallas,

President Trump has said he will nominate a woman to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg and a decision is expected Saturday at the White House. One name that is repeatedly mentioned is Amy Coney Barrett, a federal judge with the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, whose possible nomination is causing Democrats and liberal activists to howl in protest over her conservative Catholic faith. 

Barrett was infamously grilled by Sen. Dianne Feinstein in a contentious 2018 hearing, where the senator advised Barrett that Democrats have a “very uncomfortable feeling” about her “dogma” of religious beliefs entangled with the law.

“The dogma lives loudly within you,” Feinstein complained, “and that’s of concern.”

Eric Scheidler, a veteran pro-life activist with Pro-Life Action League, says the judge’s activity in the People of Praise group outraged liberals.

“Largely because of a so-called coincidence that female leaders were sometimes referred to as ‘handmaids,’” he points out. “That’s just a biblical reference. It’s referring to Mary, when she calls herself a ‘handmaid’ of the Lord.”

What is really happening, he adds, is that liberals are fighting to stop a person of faith from filling the vacancy of Ginsburg, who was a staunch feminist and former ACLU attorney.

“Let’s call upon our elected officials to tell us exactly what higher principles they believe in,” Scheidler says, “because if they don’t believe in any higher principles, then all you’ve got is power. And that’s not what we want.”

Trump in Rose Garden Apr 2020Regarding the passing of Ginsburg, Cathie Adams of Eagle Forum says the late justice can be shown respect after her death but will always be remembered as a “radical leftist” on the court.

She compares Ginsburg’s liberal record to the potential of a Trump-appointed justice such as Barrett, who is back by numerous conservative organizations. 

According to Jeffress, who backed Trump during the GOP primary and has stood beside him since, the pastor predicts the coming nomination will help Trump on Election Day.

“And I’m still holding my prediction,” he tells OneNewsNow, “that Trump is going to win on Nov. 3rd, or 4th or 5th, but he is going to win the election.”
