AUFC Statement on Senate GOP Handing SCOTUS Appointment to…Donald Trump


Washington DC (May 3, 2016) - With Senator Ted Cruz shutting down his presidential campaign following his latest primary defeat to Donald Trump in Indiana, Americans United for Change President Brad Woodhouse issued the following statement on the implications for the Senate GOP's blockade of President Obama's nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court:


"It's official, Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans are refusing to do their jobs because they want Donald Trump - a racist, sexist, misogynistic, nativist, isolationist, pathological liar who said he would date his daughter if they weren't related and won't rule out using nuclear weapons in the Middle East to make the next appointment to the Supreme Court.  This suicide pact is bad for our constitution and for America but at least it ensures that Republicans will go down to ignominious defeat in November."
