On Wednesday, President Donald Trump released a list of 20 potential Supreme Court picks for if he gets re-elected in November. The President also called on former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to do the same.
“President Trump has a stellar record of appointing more than 200 solid, conservative federal judges, including two strong Supreme Court justices, and will likely get to 300 judges by the end of his first term,” said President Trump’s campaign manager Bill Stepien. “Voters deserve transparency and a clear view of what direction candidates for president would take our federal courts. We now forcefully demand that Joe Biden do the same.”
The President revealed that he had selected 20 possible candidates for the Supreme Court. Check them out below:
Bridget Bade, Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit
Daniel Cameron, 51st Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Kentucky
Tom Cotton, U.S. Senator from Arkansas
Paul Clement, partner with Kirkland & Ellis LLP
Ted Cruz, U.S. Senator from Texas
Stuart Kyle Duncan, Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit
Steven Engel, Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel of the U.S. Department of Justice
Noel Francisco, former Solicitor General of the United States
Josh Hawley, U.S. Senator from Missouri
James Ho, Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit
Gregory Katsas, Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit

Kate Todd, Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy Counsel to the President
Lawrence VanDyke, Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit
The Trump campaign also released multiple questions for potential Supreme Court picks for Biden:
- Protect life, or side with the abortion lobby?
- Protect religious liberty, or force nuns to pay for birth control?
- Protect the 2nd Amendment, or forcibly remove the rights of law-abiding people to defend themselves and their families?
- Protect law-abiding citizens and stand with police, or coddle criminals?
- Protect our borders, our communities, and America workers, or create new rights for illegal aliens?
- Protect taxpayers, or force people to buy products they do not want, like health insurance?
- Protect American entrepreneurs and individuals, or side with government regulators who spit out miles of red tape that strangles freedom, growth, and innovation?
Counselor to President Trump Jay Sekulow stressed about how important it is that a conservative judge gets selected to serve on the Court.
“We must have justices who apply the Constitution and not make their own policies on so many important issues. That’s why it’s key that President Trump has released this list, because voters deserve the clarity and transparency of exactly where the priorities will be,” Sekulow said. “It is imperative that Joe Biden follow the President’s lead and release his own list and tell Americans where he stands, and what kind of justices he will pick.”
