Trump Wants Supreme Court Nominee Who ‘Looks All-American’: Report
President Donald Trump is reportedly looking for a U.S. Supreme Court Justice nominee based on their looks.
A Republican close to the White House told POLITICO that the it’s very important to Trump that the justice “looks all-American”:
Beyond the qualifications, what really matters is, does this nominee fit a central casting image for a Supreme Court nominee, as well as his or her spouse. That’s a big deal. Do they fit the role?
A White House official told Axios that Trump will pick the justice “who he feels most comfortable with in a personal setting,” which has nothing to do with serving as a Supreme Court Justice.
“When the President has made up his mind, he wants to go,” the source added.
