As U.S. mourn the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, it is a different case for the Republicans as the fight to replace her began.
Struggle to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Minutes after Ruth Bader Ginsburg was reported dead, there have been argument on whether she should replaced soon or not as Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell announced Friday evening “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”
It was just 4 years ago that Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell blocked barrack Obama’s nominee as they said a president cannot select a nominee if he is in his final term.
Joe Biden reacts to Donald Trump’s decision to replace her immediately she died. “Let me be clear:The voters should pick a president, and that president should select a successor to Justice Ginsburg.
Former United States president Barrack Obama reacts in a statement:
“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fought to the end, through her cancer, with unwavering faith in our democracy and its ideals. That’s how we remember her. But she also left instructions for how she wanted her legacy to be honored,” Obama said in a tweet.
