(ConservativeHub.com) – Last week, Former President Donald Trump commended the Supreme Court’s recent ruling that curtails affirmative action in college admissions. The court’s decision found that the admissions programs implemented by Harvard University and the University of North Carolina were in contravention of the 14th Amendment.
In a statement, Trump expressed his enthusiasm, proclaiming the day was a significant milestone for America. He emphasized that individuals possessing exceptional abilities and all the necessary attributes for success, including the potential for future greatness, are finally receiving due recognition. Trump celebrated the ruling as the long-awaited outcome that everyone had anticipated and hoped for, remarking on its extraordinary implications. He asserted that this decision would also foster competitiveness with other nations. Trump insisted that the US must cherish and value its brightest minds, and he viewed this ruling as a step toward a return to a merit-based system, which, in his opinion, is the most appropriate approach.
Three of the justices in the majority were appointed by Trump. A representative from the pro-Trump super PAC Make America Great Again Inc. acknowledged this fact, asserting that President Trump’s commitment to nominating justices dedicated to upholding the Constitution made this momentous decision to dismantle the allegedly discriminatory college admissions process possible. The spokesperson maintained that Donald Trump’s three Supreme Court nominees played a crucial role in the historic rulings that have enhanced America as a nation.
Former Vice President Mike Pence, who is competing against Trump in the Republican presidential race, also applauded the Supreme Court’s ruling. In a statement, Pence voiced his satisfaction that the court had put an end to what he perceived as a flagrant violation of civil and constitutional rights perpetuated through racial discrimination in admissions processes. He expressed honor in having contributed to the appointment of three Justices who were instrumental in ensuring this favorable decision. Pence pledged that, if elected president, he would continue appointing judges committed to the strict application of the law, rather than distorting it to further what he believes to be progressive or woke agendas.
The decision received a less enthusiastic reaction from Democrats. According to an NBC News report, President Joe Biden referred to it as a “disappointment.” Meanwhile, Former First Lady Michelle Obama lamented the ruling, arguing that it helped provide opportunities for those who had been denied in the past.
