Trump Nominates Judge Garland !

President Trump could greatly advance his personal chances for reelection by promptly nominating Merrick Garland for the US Supreme Court. Garland is chief judge of the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia circuit; Garland was first nominated by the previous administration in 2016.  😊 💓 😯

Why simply wait for a new administration? The President's personal star would rise, with minor downside (as Republicans control the Senate confirmation process). 

Perhaps Trump's true choice is Garland plus another term for Trump, vs. Ruthless Barrett and Biden? Even if Trump were voted from office, the Garland choice is perhaps the best option to minimize recriminations for The Trump Organization.
