Ruth Bader Ginsburg death: Trump to nominate woman to fill Supreme Court seat
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 87, died on Friday, just weeks before the presidential election. US President Donald Trump has said that he will nominate a woman to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg next week, which has turned into a political row over her successor. Trump’s Presidential rival, Joe Biden, insists the decision on her replacement should wait until after the voting process is over. But the President has vowed to swear in Ginsburg’s successor “without any delay”, a move that has infuriated Democrats, who fear Republicans will vote to lock in a decades-long conservative majority on the country’s highest court.
