Trump reportedly expects to appoint three more Supreme Court justices

US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg speaks to first year Georgetown University law students in Washington DC Trump reportedly expects to appoint three more Supreme Court justices

Now, President Donald Trump has his eyes set on even more nominees for the court: up to four, according to reports.

The political news website Axios reported Sunday that Trump, who has already appointed Neil Gorsuch to replace the late Antonin Scalia, had been discussing replacing three more justices, who have lifetime tenure.

Rumors about Chief Justice Kennedy's retirement floated around SCOTUS circles this summer, and many people expect the 81-year-old to retire before the end of Trump's first term.

"Ok", one source told Trump, "so that's two".

The sources who spoke with Trump asked how the President came to that conclusion.

"Ginsburg", Trump replied. "What does she weigh?"

Ahead of nominating Gorsuch as one of his first acts as president, Trump released a short list of 11 names.

"If this report is true, then it appears that Trump believes either that Justice Sotomayor's Type 1 diabetes will be too much of a hindrance for her to remain on the bench or that it may outright cause her death in the next seven years", Insulin Nation noted.

"Who's the fourth?" asked the source. Women are taught to have softer voices or to not be as engaged in the classroom, she said.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor took questions from Queens College students on Monday, discussing civics and a range of other subjects, including education. "It was still something that I had to deal with, grow up with and figure out how to live with".

"It wasn't so bad, but it was still bad", Sotomayor told a group of diabetic youth in Washington, D.C.in 2011. Ginsburg had hinted she was holding out hope for a Democratic Senate and a Hillary Clinton White House before retiring.
