President Donald Trump told a Missoula, Montana audience Thursday night that he’s thinking about appointing a businessman or businesswoman to the Supreme Court next.
In a diatribe about the Supreme Court and Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, Trump said that appointees don’t have to be judges, but that they probably should be. Maybe.
“I have a list of 23 people or so,” Trump told the audience. “They’re phenominal. Top students, top everything, top judges, all judges, I think. All judges. Doesn’t have to be a judge, by the way but there’s something nice about putting judges on the Supreme Court, right? I don’t know, somehow I think putting a businessman or woman — how about a businesswoman? But something nice about a judge. Doesn’t have to be a judge, do you believe it?”
