President-Elect Trump Vows Quick Action On Supreme Court

posted on January 13, 2017

In his first press conference since the November election, President-elect Donald Trump vowed to quickly name his nominee to fill Justice Antonin Scalia’s vacant seat on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Trump said he plans to nominate a justice within a few weeks of his inauguration, set for Jan. 20.

“I think it’s one of the reasons I got elected,” Trump said. “I think the people of this country did not want to see what was happening with the Supreme Court, so I think it was a very, very big decision as to why I was elected.”

In fact, the Supreme Court was one important key to the 2016 presidential election results. For NRA members and other gun owners, the thought of Hillary Clinton naming two, three or even more Supreme Court nominees over the next four to eight years was simply unthinkable.
