Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Tuesday blasted President Donald Trump's nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, saying that the choice allows the president to fulfill his campaign promises of undoing "women's reproductive freedom" and to undo the Affordable Care Act.
"I will oppose him with everything I've got," the New York Democrat told "CBS This Morning."
"On those two issues, when he campaigned, President Trump said he will only appoint pro-life judges. He wanted to send Roe v. Wade back to the states, that means repeal."
Schumer also complained that Trump's list of judges was 'pre-ordained' by the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation and questioned who vetted the people given to Trump to consider.
"The Federalist Society is run by a man named Leonard Leo, whose goal in life has been to repeal Roe v. Wade," said Schumer.
Trump has also said he wanted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, said Schumer, and "the Heritage Foundation, which also vetted this list, is firmly in favor of repealing.
"So, you put those things together, Trump, what he said who he was going to choose, and the vetting of this list, this nominee will repeal Roe and women's reproductive freedom, will repeal ACA, far against what the American people want. When the American people learn this, they're going to oppose the nominee."
