Trump Should Nominate Merrick Garland to the Fill the Vacant Supreme Court Seat.
This petition had 57 supporters
During the Obama presidency the vacant Supreme Court seat was stolen by the Republicans, when Mitch McConnell and other Senate Republicans refused to hold hearings on any of the President’s possible nominations. Many times and in many ways the people have "spoken" signaling what kind of Supreme Court Justice they would like to see. President Obama, acting within his rightful authority, nominated Merrick Garland. Our Founders never intended for the Senate to use its power to prohibit a president from appointing any Supreme Court Justices. We must maintain the integrity of our institutions and follow procedures that uphold the norms of government, as well as the rights of our citizens and elected officials.
I urge President Trump to demonstrate to the entire country that he is fair-minded and will represent all citizens. No party should be allowed to usurp the power of the office of the presidency in this way.
