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.

“Four and a half years ago, when Republicans refused to hold a hearing or an up-or-down vote on Merrick Garland, they invented the principle that the Senate shouldn’t fill an open seat on the Supreme Court before a new president was sworn in. A basic principle of the law – and of everyday fairness – is that we apply rules with consistency, and not based on what’s convenient or advantageous in the moment. The rule of law, the legitimacy of our courts, the fundamental workings of our democracy all depend on that basic principle. As votes are already being cast in this election, Republican Senators are now called to apply that standard. The questions before the Court now and in the coming years – with decisions that will determine whether or not our economy is fair, our society is just, women are treated equally, our planet survives, and our democracy endures – are too consequential to future generations for courts to be filled through anything less than an unimpeachable process.”
Donald Trump’s insisted that there must be a replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg immediately. ” We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who so proudly elected us, 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!,” Donald Trump said in a tweet.
