Barrett expected to reiterate belief that elected officials, not courts should make policy decisions in opening remarks
President Trump's Supreme Court candidate, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, is expected to reaffirm her belief that the role of the Supreme Court is to "enforce the rule of law" rather than "solve any problem or correct any wrong in public life" , during her opening speech. received by The Associated Press and other publications for their Senate confirmation hearing this week.

She also pays homage to former Supreme Court Justices, Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, before giving a preview of their legal philosophy. "Government policy decisions and value judgments must be made by the political branches that are elected and accountable to the people," she is expected to do. "The public shouldn't expect courts to do this, and courts shouldn't try."
