The US President Donald trump has expanded to 25 people a list of the main candidates for the future vacancy in the position of judges of the Supreme court, said Friday the White house.

«The President will choose a candidate for the next vacancy, if it appears from the extended list of candidates,» — said in a statement received by RIA Novosti. Previously this list included 20 people.

As noted in the White house, the President «is deeply committed to the selection of outstanding candidates» for the position of judge.

The Supreme court plays an important role in the political life of the US and often puts an end to the debate raised by the public. So, for the last two years, the Supreme court legalized same-sex marriage, supported key aspects of the controversial health care reform, which wants to cancel the trump, as well as allow States to challenge Executive decrees of the White house under former President Barack Obama to legalize millions of illegal immigrants.

Serious disputes between Democrats and Republicans on the appointment of judges of the Supreme court broke out in the last year of the presidency of Barack Obama. After the death of judge Antonin Scalia Obama nominated for the post Merrick garland, but Republicans have refused even to hold hearings on the approval of the garland before the presidential election, hoping for a victory and the nomination of a candidate. Trump after the election victory, nominated to the Supreme court of the Nile Gorsuch, whose candidacy was then approved in Congress.
