Democrats constructed a strong opposition against Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, and blocked his confirmation procedure, things didn’t work out for them. Their filibuster was not as tough as they thought, and it seems like the Republicans’ “nuclear option” was a lot tougher in this case.
The “nuclear option” allows the confirmation of nominees without the total of 60 votes. Democrats were pretty furious after Republicans announced their super plan to proceed with the confirmation of Gorsuch.
President Donald Trump was boycotted since the moment he took oath in office, and Democrats believe they have the power to block the President from building his Cabinet. Americans across the country sent a huge dose of criticism, but nothing helped, and President Trump is still facing difficulties in this aspect. But, it seems like things are about to change.
Reuters reports that the Senate gave our President an amazing victory, and he’s now closer to forming his Cabinet. The Supreme Court nominee was confirmed by the Republican-led Senate despite the harsh Democratic opposition. This step literally restored the conservative majority on the US Supreme Court.
The Senate approved the President’s pick, and the Colorado-based federal appeals court judge Neil Gorsuch is a step closer to taking his position in the Supreme Court.
The confirmation put an end to the toughest Supreme Court vacancy since 1862. Justice Antonin Scalia died on February 13, 2016, and these 14 months were filled with insecurity, scandals, and Democratic opposition, of course.
“He’s going to make an incredible addition to the court,” stated Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell right there, on the Senate floor. We bet he would, otherwise the President wouldn’t have picked him.
What do you think about this? Will Democrats keep blocking Gorsuch’s job in the Supreme Court? What will happen after his confirmation?
