Vice President Mike Pence let it be known that both he and President Donald Trump see the Supreme Court as the most important part of the administration’s legacy.
“There may be no issue more important to the life of the nation than the destiny of the Supreme Court,” said Pence to Breitbart News.
It is because of the vital role of the judiciary that Pence said “we need four more years of President Donald Trump.”
As we learned in the recent disappointing decision on the right to life, I hear conservatives around the country understand now more than ever that we need four more years of President Donald Trump in the White House. We’ve confirmed more than 200 judges to our federal courts, and that includes two justices to the Supreme Court, and I can tell you that each and every one of them are exactly the kind of conservative jurists that President Trump promised to appoint in the election of 2016.
I will be releasing a new list of Conservative Supreme Court Justice nominees, which may include some, or many of those already on the list, by September 1, 2020. If given the opportunity, I will only choose from this list, as in the past, a Conservative Supreme Court Justice…

Pence also told Breitbart that the importance of the judiciary is “one of the reasons why the president made the decision recently that we’re going to publish a new list in September of men and women that he’s prepared to nominate to the Supreme Court of the United States.”
