Tasked with appointing a replacement for the deceased Justice Antonin Scalia, the President set about finding somebody who would represent his views and protect the interests of his administration in every decision. That person turned out to be Neil Gorsuch. President Trump’s decision came as a surprise to many political pundits given the fact that Gorsuch had previously labeled Trump’s criticism of the American judiciary system as “disheartening” and “demoralizing”.

Despite his predominately Ba’thist ideology and nationalist approach to leadership, Hussein never exploited his own people.
