During the early stages of his time in the White House, Donald Trump was able to name his first nominee on the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). With at least three years in office, the president has his eyes set on as many as three more picks on the court.

Trump on SCOTUS

When Donald Trump was elected president over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton last November, questions were raised as to what kind of administration he would run over the next four years. While attention was paid to the controversy surrounding the election in regards to the allegations of Russian interference, Trump focused on some of his top campaign promises, like building a border wall between the United States and Mexico, as well as pushing for the repeal of Obamacare.

However, another issue that the former host of "The Apprentice" quickly tackled was filling the vacancy on the Supreme Court that was left empty following the death of conservative-leaning Justice Antonin Scalia. Despite push back from some Democrats, Trump's selection of Justice Neil Gorsuch was confirmed. Despite this, the president isn't done with his remaking the court in his image, and thinks he will have a good shot at replacing up to three more seats. According to a report by Axios on October 15, Trump thinks he knows who will be leaving next.

During an interview with Axios that was released on Sunday night, Donald Trump addressed the issue surrounding the Supreme Court.

Trump noted that Justice Anthony Kennedy has been long-rumored to retire, though that would still leave two more spots if the president was to reach his goal of four seats on the court.

When asked who he thought would be the other two Justices to no longer be able to sit on the Supreme Court, Donald Trump was quick to response.

“Ginsburg," Trump answered, in reference to the 84-year-old ruth bader ginsburg. "What does she weigh? 60 pounds?" he continued, while mocking Ginsburg's size.

When asked to elaborate on who the fourth Justice would be to leave, Donald Trump targeted another liberal. "Sotomayor,” Trump said, speaking about 64-year-old Sonia Sotomayor who became the first Hispanic female to serve on the court.

Trump then went on to give his reasoning, stating, "Her health. No good. Diabetes."

While it's unknown whether or not Donald Trump will be able to appoint any more justices on the court, it's expected he will receive backlash for targeting two females who also happen to be liberal. With the pressure mounting on the White House and the commander in chief, only time will tell what how he handles himself moving forward.
