Trump has been eager to nominate Ginsburg's replacement, 消息说

华盛顿州 President Donald Trump has beensalivatingto nominate a replacement for Supreme Court Justice 露丝·巴德·金斯堡 even before her death on Friday, a source close to the President told CNN.

Trump’s first comments on Ginsburg’s death came after a rally in Minnesota on Friday night where he appeared to hear the news for the first time from reporters. “Just died?” 他回应, when asked about her death.
I didn’t know that. I justyou’re telling me now for the first time. She led an amazing life,” 特朗普说. “What else can you say? She was an amazing woman, whether you agree or not, she was an amazing woman who led an amazing life. I’m actually sad to hear that. I am sad to hear that.
While his first comments were muted, the possibility of picking a replacement for the liberal stalwart has weighed on his mind.
    Trump specifically has said he wouldlove to pick艾米·科尼·巴雷特法官who serves as a federal appeals court judge and is a favorite among religious conservativesbut isdoubtful he will have Senate support,” 消息人士说.
    He has previously said that he would aim to fill a Supreme Court vacancy during the final months of his term, telling conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt in August: “I would move quickly. Why not? I mean they would. The Democrats would if they were in this position.
    Whomever Trump nominates will get a vote on the Senate floor, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has vowed, signaling a historic fight in Congress over one of the most polarizing issues in American politics.
    President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate,” 麦康奈尔, a Kentucky Republican, said in a statement Friday evening that set him on a collision path with Democrats, though the exact timing of such a fight was not immediately clear.
    参议院共和党人, who hold the majority in the upper chamber, only need 51 votes to confirm a new justice once one is formally nominatedand Republican leaders have already previously vowed to fill any potential Supreme Court vacancy this year if one were to occur. Republicans currently control 53 座位.
      During his Minnesota rally, when the President still appeared to be unaware of Ginsburg’s passing, he joked that will name Sen. 泰德·克鲁斯, a Texas Republican, as a Supreme Court nominee and said thatone of the things we’ve done that’s so good is the Supreme Court.
      I even said I’m putting Ted Cruz as one of the people for the Supreme Court. You know why I did it? Because I wanted to make sure I had somebody on the list. We had about 45 unbelievable people. The smartest, the best, the absolute creme de la creme. The best minds in the country. 保守. They believe in the Constitution. Little things like that,” Trump told the audience.
