President Donald Trump may be on the verge of releasing a list of his choices of potential U.S. Supreme Court nominations.

The president is reportedly getting the list finalized and will release it in the coming days, perhaps as early as Wednesday, according to Politico. The updated list of conservative justices has been expected as Trump had vowed a September release following a “horrible” Supreme Court decision over the summer.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany teased the new list of potential nominees when asked about it in a press briefing last week.

“You will see it soon,” she told reporters. “Certainly in the next few weeks, but it will be after the Labor Day weekend.”

Trump, who made the nomination of conservative judges part of his 2016 election platform, has touted his record and is focusing on continuing his plans in his second term. He announced a new set of nominees would be forthcoming after being frustrated by Supreme Court rulings in recent months.

“I will be releasing a new list of Conservative Supreme Court Justice nominees, which may include some, or many of those already on the list, by September 1, 2020,” he wrote on Twitter in June.

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows confirmed that the president’s list will be out “in the coming days,” telling reporters on Tuesday that Trump  “will be signing off on that in the coming days.”

The president expressed his frustration at the time after a majority in the high court ruled against his attempt to repeal President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

“The recent Supreme Court decisions, not only on DACA, Sanctuary Cities, Census, and others, tell you only one thing, we need NEW JUSTICES of the Supreme Court,” Trump wrote.

Shortly after the Supreme Court decision, with Chief Justice John Roberts siding with the majority, Trump tweeted about the so-called conservatives.

“These horrible & politically charged decisions coming out of the Supreme Court are shotgun blasts into the face of people that are proud to call themselves Republicans or Conservatives,” he tweeted roughly an hour after the decision went public. “We need more Justices or we will lose our 2nd. Amendment & everything else. Vote Trump 2020!”

With a milestone 200 judicial appointments under his belt since being elected, Trump’s influence in packing courts with conservatives is already being felt and will likely continue to have positive repercussions for pro-Constitution Americans for decades. Two justices to the Supreme Court, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, were successfully nominated by the president and he is poised to add more if liberal justices like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who is 87, and Justice Stephen Breyer, 82, decide to retire during his term.

But there has been some vocal disappointment with some recent rulings such as the DACA case and as Gorsuch sided with the liberal justices in a landmark case to guarantee protection from workplace discrimination for LGBT people.

Trump warned in a June 18 tweet about Democrats getting power in November.

“If the Radical Left Democrats assume power, your Second Amendment, Right to Life, Secure Borders, and Religious Liberty, among many other things, are OVER and GONE!” he wrote.
