BOOK: Trump Wanted Rudy Giuliani For SCOTUS

Law & Crime reports:

Neil Gorsuch‘s appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court may be one of President Donald Trump‘s early victories during his first year in office, but according to the new book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, Trump originally had someone very different in mind for the job.

While Gorsuch’s qualifications were acknowledged even by his ideological opponents, Trump initially wanted to give the job to a friend. “In the Trump view,” the book says, “it was rather a waste to give the job to someone he didn’t even know.”

So who did Trump have in mind? “The one unlikely, peculiar, and nonstarter choice that he kept returning to was Rudy Giuliani,” author Michael Wolff wrote.
