... Why not just condemn the Democrats' idea AND LEAVE IT AT THAT? ... NEVER SAY NEVER, If you don't have to:
President Trump on Tuesday rejected the idea that has gained traction among Democrats of adding seats to the Supreme Court, saying it will “never happen.”
“I wouldn’t entertain that,” the president said Tuesday at a press conference at the White House. “If they can’t catch up through the ballot box winning an election, they want to try a different way.”
“We would have no interest in that whatsoever. It will never happen.” he added.”“It won’t happen, I guarantee you, for six years.”
With two conservative justices recently appointed to the high court, the proposal to add seats has picked up steam among Democratic presidential candidates, including Senators Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Kirsten Gillibrand as well as former Texas Representative Beto O’Rourke.
“We are on the verge of a crisis of confidence in the Supreme Court,” Harris said. “We have to take this challenge head-on, and everything is on the table to do that.”
