( – On Saturday night, President Joe Biden cautioned that should former President Donald Trump wins back the White House in November then he might get the chance to appoint two new justices to the Supreme Court. 

During a star-studded campaign fundraiser in Los Angeles, Biden argued that it was likely that the next U.S. president would get to nominate two more people to the Supreme Court. He pointed out that Trump had already put two Justices in the Supreme Court who are negative when it comes to an individual’s rights. As he argued this is one of the “scariest” aspects of this election. 

Biden’s remarks came during the fundraiser where he had appeared with former President Barack Obama. There were many Hollywood stars also in attendance during the fundraiser including actors Julia Roberts and George Clooney. 

Host Jimmy Kimmel moderated the discussion between Biden and Obama during the event and referred to a number of policy issues. Kimmel pointed out that almost two years earlier the conservative justices that are now sitting on the bench because of former President Trump, had played an important role in overturning Roe v. Wade and taking away protection and access to abortion. He added that they have threatened women’s rights, abortion rights, birth control, and even IVF and that these are being real decisions made by these nine judges who have not been elected to their seats. He also referenced the recent incident where Justice Alito had been found to be flying an American flag upside down outside his home.
