Trump’s Chief of Staff Says That President Will Release New SCOTUS Nominee List Soon
On Tuesday, President Trump’s Chief of Staff Mark Meadows predicted that the President will release an updated list of Supreme Court nominees, telling reporters that “[W]e’ve been working very closely, the president has, with the White House general counsel, getting input from a number of others, and so I’m excited about the list. The president will be signing off on that in the coming days.”
In June, after the Supreme Court ruled against his decision to rescind the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, Trump tweeted that he would announce a new list of nominees by September 1st.
…Based on decisions being rendered now, this list is more important than ever before (Second Amendment, Right to Life, Religous Liberty, etc.) – VOTE 2020!

According to Just the News:
“Trump during his 2016 presidential bid announced a list of high court nominees who had written conservative-leaning opinions from the judicial bench, helping secure the conservative part of his base.
“Two Trump picks, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanuagh, confirmed to the high court in Trump’s first term, where on a revised list by the president.”
The Supreme Court is a major national issue that has the potential to shape the country for at least a generation—which makes it another reason to make sure President Trump wins reelection.
