UPDATE 2 - Trump Says Pick For US Supreme Court Possible By Saturday Out Of 5 Women Candidates
WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 22nd September, 2020) US President Donald Trump said he may choose his nominee for the US Supreme Court by the end of the week and is considering picking from a list of five women candidates to replace the deceased justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the bench.
The US president added that has already spoken to some of the candidates and plans to hold more meetings soon.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Friday that the Senate would vote on Trump's pick to replace Ginsburg regardless of criticism by Democrats that they should not do so because of being in an election year. The Republicans currently hold a 53-47 majority in the Senate.
