(FiveNation.com)- Former President Donald Trump had high hopes for Supreme Court Justices Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh, expecting the two justices that he nominated for the bench to make conservative judgments on key cases relating to Obamacare, abortion, and more.
But speaking to “Water Cooler” on Just the News, the former president explained how he is “very disappointed” with some recent votes made by Supreme Court Justices Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh.
The former president said that he “fought very hard” for the two judges, which is true. Republicans were inundated with attacks and the two justices were smeared by Democrats after then-President Trump nominated them to take seats on the bench. And in return, they appear to be making decisions that many Republicans would never have expected them to make.
For instance, on June 17, the Supreme Court upheld a health care law that Republican governors challenged in a lawsuit. Republicans argued that Obamacare should no longer stand now that the individual mandate has been removed. President Donald Trump removed that penalty in 2017 soon after becoming president, meaning Obamacare now exists in a way that it was not originally intended to be.
Former President Trump also told David Brody in the interview that while he is disappointed, he isn’t necessarily having second thoughts about his nominations. He said that “second guessing” doesn’t do any good, but that he can still be disappointed with the votes made by the judges even if he still supports the justices he appointed.
During the interview, which you can find here, the former president also said that he the media is wrong to suggest that he has conceded the last election, and that he will never concede.
Which is hardly surprising, given the evidence of widespread fraud, misconduct, and corruption that has already been uncovered by voting rights groups like the Voter Integrity Project.
