The Women’s March, whose mission is to “harness the political power of diverse women,” issued a statement denouncing President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee by initially referencing the nominee as “XX,” which indicated that it was created before President Trump had made his final decision on the nomination for the vacated seat on the court.
“In response to Donald Trump’s nomination of XX to the Supreme Court, The Women’s March released the following statement,” the email begins.
Trump’s nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, was mentioned later in the statement.
“Trump’s announcement today is a death sentence for thousands of women in the United States,” the statement read. “Judge Brett Cavenaugh’s (sic.) nomination threatens to move our nation’s highest court dangerously to the right and further erode protections for almost every marginalized group in America.”

Another email was sent shortly after with edits fixing those issues.
ABC’s “Nightline” seemed to have the same issue as The Women’s March, issuing a premature tweet claiming Trump’s nominee was “controversial” prior to Trump announcing he had decided on Kavanaugh. A correction was later issued that said ABC News’ Terry Moran “reports on the controversy surrounding the Supreme Court Justice pick and the possible implications for the country.

Earlier in the day Monday, the Women’s March group claimed they already opposed whoever Trump decided to nominate, showing the left’s continued contempt for President Trump, not even offering consideration to the decision.
“We already know it will be someone with a stated opposition to abortion and women’s right to choose what happens to our own bodies,” the group tweeted.
‼️Trump plans to announce his Supreme Court Justice pick tonight.

Kavanaugh is the second Supreme Court justice Trump has nominated. Neil Gorsuch was Trump’s first pick; he was confirmed to the seat left by the late Antonin Scalia.
