The Daily Signal | Trump Nominates Amy Coney Barrett to Supreme Court

President Donald Trump held to expectations Saturday evening by nominating U.S. Circuit Judge Amy Coney Barrett, known for her originalist approach as a jurist, to the Supreme Court.

“Today it is my honor to nominate one of our nation’s most brilliant and gifted legal minds to the Supreme Court,” Trump told an audience in the Rose Garden of the White House shortly after 5 p.m., with Barrett at his side.

“You are very eminently qualified for this job,” Trump said, turning to Barrett. “You are going to be fantastic.”

If confirmed by the Senate, Barrett will become the fifth woman ever to serve on the Supreme Court in filling the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Sept. 18.
