President Donald Trump will nominate a woman candidate for the post vacancy created by the death of US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The president said, during an election rally held in North Carolina. Ginsberg, who suffered from pancreatic cancer, died on Friday at the age of 87. She was famous for working in the interests of women's rights.
Ginsburg, the most senior judge and the second woman to be appointed as a judge in the Supreme Court, served for 27 years there. Ginsburg was appointed by President Bill Clinton.
”If someone asks me now, I will say that a woman will be in the first place,” Trump said.
So far 29 judges have been nominated for the Supreme Court in the election year. We will start the process very soon and nominate a woman for this position. '
The special thing is that Trump took opinions from the people present in the rally about the man or woman judge. When the crowd shouted loudly to nominate the woman, Trump said that there could be no better survey. In fact, Republicans and Democrats have once again become entrenched in the post vacated by the death of Ginsberg.
On behalf of the Democratic Party, presidential candidate Joe Biden has said that the appointment of the judge should be left to the new president. While McConnell, a Trump close and leader of the Republican Party in the Senate, says the House will support anyone nominated by the president.
In fact, Senate approval is required for appointment to the Supreme Court, and Trump's Republican Party has a majority in the Senate, the upper house of the US Parliament. 1
His party has 53 members in the Senate with 100 seats. President Trump has appointed Neil Gorsuch in the year 2017 and Brett Kavanaugh in the Supreme Court in the year 2018.
