Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy is set to retire, giving President Donald Trump the chance to cement a conservative majority on the top court. This is because Justice Anthony Kennedy, who was nominated by Ronald Reagan in 1988, has announced that he is retiring.
"It is time for a Supreme Court that returns power to 'We the People'".

"Even though it takes 10, 20 years for some people to come in, the government thinks there's a need to do more vetting".
"I never thought I'd say this, but, you're only 81!"

Justice Sotomayor described at length various statements Mr Trump made on the campaign trail. "As a result, it is my view that if a Supreme Court Justice resigns tomorrow, or within the next several weeks, or resigns at the end of the summer, President Bush should consider following the practice of a majority of his predecessors and not - and not - name a nominee until after the November election is completed". "And women who are poor, who might not have the resources to take time off of work or stay in a hotel out of state, would be more likely to either bring pregnancies to term or terminate them illegally using something like black-market medication".
