Trump: Clinton’s ‘Far Left’ SCOTUS Picks Would Make U.S. Like Venezuela


Donald Trump repeated his attack line Wednesday that Hillary Clinton’s "far left" Supreme Court picks would make the United States like socialist Venezuela.

Trump first spoke about how great his Supreme Court picks would be at a rally in Daytona Beach, Florida, before turning to Clinton. The Republican nominee mocked Clinton by floating Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D., Mass.) name as one of her potential picks for the high court.

"If Hillary puts her people on the Supreme Court, OK, like who knows? Elizabeth Warren maybe will go. Maybe. Pocahontas. Pocahontas. They’ll put Pocahontas. What an insult to Pocahontas, isn’t it?" Trump joked.

Trump then insinuated that America would become like Venezuela, a socialist country, if Clinton became president and had the power to nominate people to the Supreme Court.

"But she will put people so far left that our country will become Venezuela. Big Version, Venezuela. Believe me," Trump told the crowd.

Trump told supporters in Toledo, Ohio, last week that "[Clinton] is so far left that we’re never going to have a country again. We’re going to end up being Venezuela."
