Trump Will Announce Supreme Court Nominee on Friday or Saturday

Summary from the AllSides News Team

President Donald Trump said Monday that he plans to name a Supreme Court nominee either Friday or Saturday after the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is laid to rest. Trump plans to move ahead with the naming of his third U.S. Supreme Court nomination, even as two Republican Senators — Lisa Murkowoski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine — have publicly objected to holding a vote on a nominee before the 2020 election. Democrats are meanwhile working to sway the two additional GOP senators needed to block a confirmation vote.
