"Someone who protects the right to life, someone who protects the Second Amendment, this is a president who is guided by the founding of this country and the Constitution. "

What Trump Should Look for in a Supreme Court Nominee | Opinion

  What Trump Should Look for in a Supreme Court Nominee | Opinion Democrats have guaranteed that politics will dominate the Ginsburg seat, but there is no constitutional reason for the politicization otherwise. The Constitution allows Trump to nominate someone for a vacancy right up until his term expires. It authorizes the Senate to provide or withhold its consent, which can take the form of voting down a nominee, or not voting at all. President Obama exercised his constitutional right and nominated someone in a presidential election year. But the Senate, controlled by the opposing party, constitutionally refused to provide its consent.

President Trump said he expected to nominate a replacement for Justice Ginsburg next week. Her death rapidly reshaped the race between Mr. Trump and Joe Biden and led to a political fight in the Senate. Susan Collins said her fellow Republicans should not hold a vote on a replacement before the

The White House spokeswoman described Ginsburg as a "tireless and resolute champion of justice."
