US President, Mr. Donald Trump has claimed that will nominate a woman to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Justice. The appointment of the Supreme Court is vital because any decision on key US law issues requires the balance of nine members.
Ginsburg 87, a liberal figure and radical standard-bearer, passed away from pancreatic cancer at her Washington, DC home last week, just weeks before the US elections.
Ginsburg was one of the few four Liberals on the bench with nine seats, and her death after 27 years of service implies that the balance of power would change definitively to the Conservative if the Republicans vote goes through.
The justice in the United States can serve for life if it does not step down or retire and Trump knows that if his candidate passes, the Conservative will be in control of important decisions in the decades to come.
On Saturday, Trump tweeted that they had placed the position of power and importance to make decisions for the people they so proudly voted for them. One of the most important tasks has long been the election of the Supreme Court.
On Friday, the supporters gathered outside the court to pay tribute to the second-ever woman to sit on the supreme court and who been affectionately well known as a notorious RBG.
Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential candidate, has insisted that the nomination be made after the upcoming election, unlike this week.
Trump has vowed that he will swear in the Ginsburg’s successor immediately. Democrats were furious over claims that Republicans could vote to win a decade-long Conservative majority in the country’s highest court.
Mr. Trump confirmed that he will be nominating the successor and who will be a woman on Saturday during the campaign event in Fayetteville, North Carolina this week. Trump insisted that the candidate will be a woman because he likes women more than men. While speaking, some supporters could be heard singing fill that seat.
This is another rare opportunity for Mr. Trump, who is nominating justice for the third time since taking the presidential seat.
Previously, the president praised two judges from city appeals courts, who are now viewed as possible choices. The two justices are Barbara Lagoa and Amy Coney Barret, who are Conservatives and are considered the best balance for Republicans in the Supreme Court.
This is one of the reasons the Democrats vigorously reject a nomination ahead of the upcoming November election. They argue that former President Barack Obama was also blocked by Republican senators from appointing the US Supreme Court in 2016.
Previously, Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell had justified the move because it was an election year. However, later on, Friday, he said he would act and put any nominations Trump would put up to vote in the Senate before election day.
In the United States, the nomination and appointment of judges have been a row and have always been a political issue. Usually, the president nominates a judge then presented before the senate who either votes to approve or reject.
