Trump officially nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court during a conference in the Rose Garden at the White House on Saturday (September 26).
"Judges are not policymakers", she said.
But the nominee, who has already been dubbed by some "Glorious ACB" - as the opposite of late Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who is remembered by many as "Notorious RBG" - also has her fans and supporters. Barrett's defense of this interpretive approach is not a mere pretext to achieve conservative results; rather, it is based on judicial deference to the democratic process that gives statutes their legitimacy.
Increases in mail, absentee and early voting brought about by the coronavirus pandemic have already led to a flurry of election litigation, and both Trump and Biden have assembled armies of lawyers to continue the fight once vote-counting begins.
"President Trump could claim all he wants that he is going to protect people with pre-existing conditions".
The call to expand the Supreme Court comes in in light of Trump rushing the nomination and confirmation process for conservative Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who would solidify a 6-3 Republican-appointed majority on the Supreme Court. "She will be a justice on full par with them".
The president said he had considered Barrett for an opening in 2018 before he ultimately settled on Brett Kavanaugh, but he explained that she "seemed like a natural fit" after Ginsburg's death.

In 2016, Barrett, speaking at Jacksonville University, voiced the expectation that the legality of abortions would basically remain, but surmised that some of the restrictions would change. Dire predictions circulate about the consequences of adding another conservative-leaning justice to the Court, but Barrett's record suggests that she will do credit to the institution.
The 48-year-old nominee is a member of the People of Praise, a small Catholic group that teaches husbands are the heads of the family. When she was nominated for the appeal court, she was supported by a bipartisan group of law professors, who wrote in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, "Although we have differing perspectives on the methods and conclusions in her work, we all agree that Professor Barrett's contributions to legal scholarship are rigorous, fair-minded, respectful, and constructive".
Booker then turned to bash President Donald Trump.
"I think we're going to have it done easily before the election", he said.
In Sunday's interview with Fox & Friends, Mr Trump was asked whether he would like to see Roe v Wade challenged and overturned if Judge Barrett's nomination was confirmed.
"I mean she's got school-aged children at home which when you think about it it's quite unusual for a supreme court justice to have to get up in the morning, feed her kids and get them off to the school bus", said Benson.
An emboldened Supreme Court conservative majority could shift the United States to the right on hot-button issues by, among other things, curbing abortion rights, expanding religious rights, striking down gun control laws, halting the expansion of LGBT rights, and endorsing new restrictions on voting rights.
