Brilliant Chess Move… Position Dems As Anti woman Right Before The Election
Donald Trump said he expects to announce his nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg “next week” and it will “most likely” be a woman.
The president revealed his plans during a 12-minute scrum with reporters outside the White House as he prepared to depart for a rally tonight in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
“We want to respect the process,” Trump said. “I think it’s going to go very quickly, actually.”
Asked to comment on Republican senator Susan Collins’ statement earlier Saturday that Ginsburg’s seat on the high court should be filled by the winner of November’s election “in fairness to the American people”, Trump was to the point.
“I totally disagree with her,” he said. “We won.”
Trump’s suggestion that he will choose a woman to replace Ginsburg only fuels speculation that he is eying 48-year-old Amy Coney Barrett for the lifetime appointment.
Barrett worries progressives as a committed Roman Catholic with conservative views on social issues. At Barrett’s circuit court confirmation hearings, the Democratic senator Dianne Feinstein expressed concern that the judge would be guided by church law instead of the constitution.
“The dogma lives loudly within you and that’s a concern,” Feinstein said, “when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for for years in this country.”
