President Donald Trump has said the Supreme Court seat vacated by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg should be filled “without delay”.
Speaking on Saturday, the president urged the Republican-run Senate to consider “without delay” his upcoming nomination to the high court.
“We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who so proudly elected us,” Trump tweeted.
“The most important of which has long been considered to be the selection of United States Supreme Court Justices. We have this obligation, without delay!”
