Trump nominated Supreme Court. He President Donald Trump said this Saturday that he hopes to nominate his candidate next week to fill the vacancy left by the judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court, and that will surely be a woman.
“I can see that it is most likely a woman. If someone asked me now, I would say a woman first. Choosing a woman I would say would certainly be appropriate, ”Trump told reporters at the White House before leaving for North Carolina, where he was scheduled to hold a rally.
Asked about when he will present his nominee to the Supreme Court, the president replied: “I think the election will be next week.”
Trump said he has a list of about 45 people to choose from.
The journalists asked him about two judges, the Latina Barbara Lagoa and Amy Coney Barrett, two magistrates that Trump has said likes the leader of the Republican majority in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, to which the president replied that “both are very respected”.
Trump was also questioned about the fact that he is going to present a nominee to the Supreme Court before the elections on November 3, when Republicans blocked former President Barak Obama from doing so in 2016 before the elections of that year. “That is a consequence of losing an election,” Trump said.
Hours earlier, the president had urged Republicans on Twitter to fill “without delay” the vacancy left in the Supreme Court by Ginsburg, who died on Friday at the age of 87.
Addressing the Republican Party, Trump tweeted: “We have been put in a position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who proudly elected us, the most important of which has long been considered the selection of the judges of the US Supreme Court We have this obligation, without delay! “
