Krauthammer: Trump's SCOTUS Picks Will Have a "Dramatic Effect" Unifying GOP

As Katie reported yesterday, both conservatives and libertarians are very impressed with the list of 11 judges Donald Trump would potentially nominate to the Supreme Court should he win the general election.


Now syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer has weighed in.

When Fox News’ Bret Baier asked whether Trump’s SCOTUS wish list did much to “change the dynamics in unifying the GOP,” Krauthammer’s response was a resounding yes.

"I think it will have a dramatic effect in doing that. One thing holding back people who have resisted supporting Trump or at least the major thing is the fear of what a Clinton presidency would do to the Supreme Court and how it would change it for a generation,” he said. “Now you get a list of 11 who are quite sterling, three of them clerked for Justice Thomas, two of them for Justice Scalia. The six federal judges all appointed by George W. Which means they are conservative, and they are relatively young. So this is a future looking list.”

Krauthammer did caution, however, that excitement over the list should be measured.

“[T]he only caveat is what you and I heard on the interview where Trump said his appointee will most likely be from this list. Not going to be, but most likely. How do you interpret that? I don't know. He always leaves himself wiggle room. He likes to have leverage. He keeps the leverage. What he does is to kindle a little bit of doubt."
