Trump will nominate a woman for Ginsberg’s victory in the Supreme Court next week


"She's going to be a woman. I think she has to be a woman because I really like women more than men," the president told an election rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Liberal icon Justice Ginsberg has been sitting in the Supreme Court since 1993 until his death on Friday due to complications from pancreatic cancer.

Her death has sparked a battle over how to appoint a successor, especially on controversial issues such as abortion rights, with the perceived political leanings of Supreme Court judges. This is an important political debate. Is the subject of

Democrats say no successor should be elected’ until after the November election.

According to the non-profit media organization NPR, Justice Ginsberg, himself a women's rights champion, had said before his death that he would not be replaced’ until a new president was in power.

But Mr. Trump has insisted the Republican Party is committed to replacing Justice Ginsberg "without delay."

The Supreme Court's judicial appointment procedure allows the president to nominate a candidate and then requires his approval from the Senate.

This will give Mr. Trump a chance to increase the conservative majority of the court to 6-3.

If successful, conservative justices could dominate the Supreme Court for decades to come, and possibly eliminate Rowe Wade - the Supreme Court's 1973 decision to ban abortion in the United States. Protects women's rights.

Two conservative women have been nominated’ as potential candidates: Amy Coney Barrett of the 7th Circuit in Chicago and Barbara Lagoa of the 11th Circuit in Atlanta.

Ms Brett is a devout Roman Catholic who says abortion rights groups are likely to vote to overturn a landmark decision that has legalized abortion across the country.

Ms. Lagoa was the first Latina in Florida's Supreme Court and would become the youngest justice in the Supreme Court if she is appointed’ at the age of 52.

Mr. Trump has already appointed two judges: Neil Gorsuch in 2017 and Brett Kavanaugh in 2018.

Conservative Antonin Scalia died just 10 months before this year's election, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reiterated that the Senate would not act on any nominee during the election year.

This time, he has reversed his position and vowed to call for an immediate vote to confirm Mr. Trump's nominee.

In a statement posted online, Mr. Obama said: "One of the basic tenets of the law. And everyday justice - is that we apply the rules consistently, and not based on the fact that at the moment. What is useful or beneficial? "

Presidential candidate Joe Biden also expressed frustration: "There is no doubt about it, let me make it clear: the electorate must elect a president, and this president must elect a successor to Justice Ginsburg."
