Trump Promises to Nominate a New Justice ‘Without Delay’

by Mary Margaret Olohan


President Donald Trump promised Saturday to nominate a new Supreme Court justice “without delay.”

“We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who so proudly elected us, the most important of which has long been considered to be the selection of United States Supreme Court Justices,” the president tweeted Saturday morning, tagging the Republican Party in his tweet.

“We have this obligation, without delay,” he added.

His comments come the morning after Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died Friday at the age of 87 due to complications of metastatic pancreatic cancer. The late justice’s death has left a vacancy on the court less than two months before the 2020 presidential election.

According to NPR, Ginsburg told her granddaughter Clara Spera a few days before her death: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new President is installed.”
