President Trump told Fox & Friends that he plans to announce his nominee to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court on Friday or Saturday.
Manu Raju: “There will only be 39 or 38 days before the election if Trump names the pick on Friday/Saturday as he just said. That would be extremely fast for a confirmation process, which typically takes 2-3 months. Suggests a lame-duck confirmation vote is more likely.”
However, Trump also said he wants a confirmation vote before the elections, citing election disputes and his baseless claim of “fake ballots” being filled out: “We don’t want a 4-4 tie at the court.”
