AFJAC ON TRUMP COURT PICKS: When opinion columnist Bill Knight discussed in The Pekin (Il.) Daily Times the emerging debate by the presidential candidates over the composition of the Supreme Court, he quoted Alliance for Justice Action Campaign President Nan Aron.
Those people that Donald Trump has considered for appointing to the court, if he were elected, “have been characterized as extremists likely to push partisan positions more than the logic of the Constitution as a ‘living document’ adapting to changing times,” Knight wrote. The columnist proceeded to quote Aron:
“’Taken together, the records of these potential Trump nominees reflect a radical-right ideology that threatens fundamental rights, and that favors the powerful over everyone else — especially people from historically marginalized communities,” she said.
