Joe Biden Says Voters Shouldn’t Know Who He Would Appoint To Supreme Court
2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said Monday that voters do not deserve to know whom he would appoint to the Supreme Court.
Biden acknowledged that he has a list of potential nominees, but told Milwaukee television station TMJ4 that he will not share it.
Biden Won’t Release His List Of Nominees – And President Trump Thinks He Knows Why
The former vice president admitted his first selection would be a black woman, but would not give any additional details beyond that choice.
It was the second time in two days that Biden refused to tell voters who was on his list.
“We’re in the middle of an election,” Biden said.
“By the time that vote comes up, if it comes up, there will have been close to 40% of people who have already voted.”
“It’s a violation of the spirit of the Constitution to suggest that it should not wait…” he added.
“Should voters know?” Biden was asked by the reporter. “Should voters know who you’re going to appoint?”
“No, they don’t, but they will if I’m elected. They’ll have plenty of time,” Biden replied.
Biden also said his 1st choice is to select an African-American woman, but outlined his reasoning for not releasing a list of nominees

Biden said that if he shared his choices for the Supreme Court it would give critics too much time to examine and scrutinize them.
Reacting to Biden’s bizarre comments, Trump told supporters during an Ohio rally why he thinks Biden is not releasing a list.

Trump Believes Biden Won’t Reveal His Picks Because ‘He’s Going To Have To Put In Radicals’
“They don’t want to show the judges because the only ones he can put in are far-left radicals,” Trump said.
The President said that a moderate or mere “left-of-center”nominee would not be enough for today’s far-left Democratic Party.
“So he’s going to have to put in radicals,” Trump warned, “so he doesn’t want to show who his judges are.”
Trump believes that if Biden did publicize his picks, the former vice president would be “unelectable.”
