Trump says he will 'reject judicial activism' when picking Supreme Court nominee

President Trump on Friday pledged that his forthcoming Supreme Court pick will "reject judicial activism" and avoid making policy from the bench.

In his weekly video address to the nation, Trump vowed that his nominee will not "re-write the law, re-invent the Constitution."

"Judges are not supposed to re-write the law, re-invent the Constitution, or substitute their own opinions for the will of the people expressed through their laws," Trump said. "We reject judicial activism and policy-making from the bench."
