After the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the talk almost immediately turned to the question of when the SCOTUS vacancy would be filled, and who would fill it.
Democrats like Chuck Schumer and others are obviously demanding that the Republicans wait until the upcoming election is over before deciding on a new justice. But according to President Trump in North Carolina on Saturday night, he’s narrowed down his search and will move forward very soon:
Trump supporters chant "FILL THAT SEAT!"
“We will uphold equal justice under the law for citizens of every race, color, religion & creed.”
