President Joe Biden has nominated a judge from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to the U.S. Supreme Court. With the seat of Justice Stephen Breyer still not vacant, and with growing domestic and international crises that require American elected officials’ attention, now is not the time to talk about a Supreme Court nomination.
During his term in office so far, President Biden has made a series of poor decisions. His order to cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline project, his decision to abruptly withdraw from Afghanistan and leave behind American citizens and expensive military weapons, and his failure to prevent Russian invasion of Ukraine are just a few. Additionally, because of Biden administration’s economic policies, consumers are suffering from record-high inflation. Moreover, because of President Biden’s policies, there is a serious crisis at the southern border of the United States. Therefore, the American people cannot trust Joe Biden to nominate a fair and impartial justice to the highest court in the country.
Many domestic and international issues demand American elected officials’ attention. Therefore, it is not the right time to work on the nomination process of a SCOTUS candidate, especially when the seat is still not vacant.
