‘A vote for any Democrat is a vote for Schumer, Pelosi and Maxine,’ president says
Just a few days ago, California Rep. Maxine Waters and Supreme Court Justices Anthony M. Kennedy and Neil Gorsuch did not feature heavily in Donald Trump’s midterm campaign spiel. But Wednesday night, the president made clear that has changed in a major way.
Air Force One touched down in Fargo, North Dakota, just hours after Kennedy informed Trump during a White House meeting of his decision to retire next month after three decades on the high court. And the president wasted no time in painting North Dakota’s junior senator, Democrat Heidi Heitkamp, as an automatic “no” vote on any nominee he picks to replace the “swing vote” justice.
