Trump confirms he will fill any potential SCOTUS vacancy ahead of election

President Trump confirmed on Tuesday that he will attempt to fill a Supreme Court vacancy if he is given the opportunity before the November election. 

Conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump during a Tuesday interview if he would nominate a new Supreme Court justice despite it being an election year.

“Absolutely, I’d do it,” Trump replied. Speculation that the opportunity may present itself sooner rather than later has been at a fever pitch as 87-year-old Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg continues to suffer from poor health.

Ginsburg has been in an out of the hospital several times this summer and is receiving chemotherapy for lung cancer — her fourth bout with cancer in just over two decades.

Trump said he would “move quickly” to fill any vacancy that arises, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has vowed to fast-track a SCOTUS confirmation, despite refusing to do the same for then-President Obama in 2016.

Democrats are furious that Trump and McConnell would consider such a move, but Trump appears to be unbothered by the criticisms. “Why not?” he asked. “I mean, they would. The Democrats would if they were in this position.”

Trump added that he already has a candidate in mind, but refused to disclose their name. “I have somebody that I think would be really well-received, would be excellent, highly-respected,” he revealed. “I mean, that’s subject to change, but somebody that really would be, I think, I think great.”

Justice Ginsburg has insisted that she will remain on the court as long as she is able to fulfill her duties and affirmed in July that her current health issues have not interfered with her ability to do so.

        1. Dont give the democruds an even break! If you so much as flinch ,,they will stab you and claim you killed yourself! Semper. Fi

    1. Has anyone bothered to check her pulse? Dems will keep her alive, regardless of the fraudulent moves they must make, fearing that President Trump will win over Joe “boo-boo” Biden.

    2. DO IT MR PRESIDENT. THOSE DEMO RACTS ARE NOTHING BUT CORRUPT BULLIES.TELL THEM TO GO TO HELL. PRESIDENT TRUMP IN A LANDSLIDE IN 2020.

  1. overwhelming majority with conservative at Supreme Court this country will be tilted to the more normal country: equal right to everybody. It will calm down the extreme left and the country will become more peaceful.

    1. I totally agree. The amount of corruption and playing political anti-American games could be erased.

  2. IF GINSBURG WERE EMPLOYED LIKE A NORMAL PERSON <SHE WOULD HAVE TO BE REPLACED !!!
    ANYTIME YOU CANNOT FILL YOUR JOB YOU WILL BE REPLACED AND GET ANOTHER JOB IF THEY HAVE
    A VACANY!!! A BUSSINESS CAN NOT STAY IN BUSSINESS IF SOMEONE IS OUT FOR LONG!!!!!!!!!
    phyllis elliott

    1. Phyllis Elliott, you are completely correct. Ginsberg is being selfist and she may have a bit of dementia also.

      1. She once swore that she would remain until after Trump is gone!!! I feel sorry for her and admire her battle with cancer, but I really doubt she could last another 4 1/2 yrs which is how long the Big Orange Man will be in the WH, God willin’ & the creek don’t rise!!

  3. Yes, retire Ruth and get it over with, it is about that Republicans can run this great country and fulfill the constitution and honor the Greatest Country In The World………The United States and put the dumbo Democrats
    in their place.

    1. Grinberg says she will hold out till after the election for trump cant replace her..and they say they are not bias .hope Roberts falls and busts he head open again at his club house .allowing a demrat da from ny go after trump tax records..witch hunt. but this time ,has to retire. Lord work in mysterious ways..

  4. Leave Justice Ginsburg alone. She is still performing her duties. Conservatives just want her gone so they can replace her with another ultra conservative judge. I hope she holds on til January!!!

    1. Jada, Honey. Read “Blitz” by David Horowitz. You’ll have your eyes opened to the point where it’s difficult to sleep. I have always had great respect for Justice Ginsberg. However there comes a time in everyone’s life when they cannot continue…..no matter how hard they try. She’s there!

      1. She is not fulfilling her duties. She can’t even stay awake. At 87 it is almost impossible to get out of bed in the AM let alone dress & go to work under normal, healthy conditions & why would you? Only because of selfish, ulterior motives.

      1. It should be nation wide along with all politicians only 2 terms permanently & no pension ever plus they pay for their own flights on their own dime

  5. The deep state far left are Criminals. Don’t wait to make changes on the Corrupt ones. TREASON Against America and American’s. Up Hold the Law’s and Now. Arrest All Federal Prison is open for Business.

  6. “Never say die” Ginzberg! “Walking Dead” Biden! “Wicked Witch” Pelosi!
    Wow! Eerie, but WOW!!!
    Sounds like a new movie’s coming !

  7. Ginsterd is more mentally incapacitated than Biden. She’s a senile old bat. Should have never been allowed to be on any court except maybe traffic; even she couldn’t screw that up ( maybe). She needs to be impeached from the bench for diminished capacity.

  8. She might already be dead. The democrats will go to any length to get what they want. Someone should get a recent picture of her. She has been ill a long time and it is hard to believe she is still alive..

  9. She might already be dead. The democrats will go to any length to get what they want. Someone should get a recent picture of her. She has been ill a long time and it is hard to believe she is still alive.

    This is not a duplicate post!!

  10. Trump Has fulfilled many of his campaign promises more than any president since
    That is more than any current living president can say:
    “I met these promises to the American people as I said I would…”

    Joe Biden cannot even shine his light and live hood to what Trump has done in the small amount of time while Biden sat on his booty 40 years or so…what did he accomplished besides budding up to the Chinese as his whole family did under the name “Biden” for profits on their bank accounts

  11. Joe “Cha Ching” Biden?
    Pun intended
    I truly believe that Justus Ginsburg really thinks she can do this, but at 89 or 90, she truly needs to sit back and with what little time is left, smell some roses.
    I say this respectfully. Retire now Ma’am, while it’s still good.

    1. It’s not Pocahontas. He picked Kamala Hairless. Which is even worse fro him. But it’s great for us!
      She’s the wicked witch from San Fran. Whoop y!

  12. Why does Joe Bidens son Hunter get a free meal ticket and you do not hear of his kunoodling with Pandemic China. Billions of dollars WOW. Obamagate how unpatriotic and should be investigated. Sending billions to Iran. REALLY?!!.
    Money belonging to Amerians. Gingrich. Your baby killing days are over. Most Americans want to live free, peruse happiness, leave our children a legacy worth fighting for and display pride to be an American.

  13. Yes she needs to be replaced. It’s way overdo. She is not capable in my eyes she has been on camera asleep for goodness sake! Should be some kind of limit to the madness. Just being stubborn isnt reason enough For her to stay.

  14. GOOD….RUTH GINSBURG HAS SAID SHE IS ABLE TO CONTINUE HER JOB?????? DOES THAT MEAN THAT THE Supreme Court WORK THEIR SCHEDULE AROUND HER SO SHE DOES NOT HAVE TO RETIRE??????? ARE THE DEMS THAT WORRIED??????? BEING THAT THERE IS A TURNCOAT (FAKE) PERSON ON THE COURT………IT IS NECESSARY TO PUT SOMEONE ELSE THERE TO BALANCE OUT THE COURT????????? WITH RUTH BEING SO ILL (SAD) I REALLY DO NOT SEE HOW SHE CAN ACTUALLY DO HER JOB????????? SOMETHING DOES NOT ADD UP???????

  15. judge Ginaburg must be put on a sick leave, without voting.interference Someone worthy must be put in her place, officially temporarily with voting rights, I do not know the Court’s rues, but am certain some angle can be found.in case of illness. I IS usa VS AN ILL JUSTICE,

  16. Ginsberg NEEDS to be REMOVED immediately. As a cancer survivor I know for Fact that Chemotherapy can affect a person’s mental state and interfere with cognitive ability.she is doing the American people an extreme disservice by not retiring decently and the court is also ignoring true justice by allowing her to continue to sit on the bench. Either retire her or fire her PERIOD.

  17. Democrats raised hell that Obozo wasn’t able to put in Judge Merrick, in his last year in office. Democrats seem to forget that Trump isn’t in his lame duck year. I’m sure they would do the same thing, if it was at the first four years of Obozo’s presidency. They really have nothing to cry about, because the Biden rule only pertained only to the seventh year of a president’s term.

  18. Hope to God he able to fill it before November! With either GROWY OR CRUZ! THESE two are very intelligent in the CONSTITUTION LAWS

  19. The DNC has been using duct tape and super glue to keep old lady Ginsburg upright for two years . If PINCHA Hillary would have won in 2016 , CHINGUS Ginsburg would have retired in a heartbeat !!! This LIBERAL hag is playing the game , then so should trump , if he gets the chance ,, fill the vacancy .

  20. I feel sorry for her, but i do not believe she is doing her job and we should not have to wait till they are putting dirt over her before she gives up her job. Just plain greed.

  21. She has to last until January. If Biden wins in November (gasp, groan), Trump is still President for another 2 1/2 months until Kamala takes over as President. Think about that before you vote.

  22. Ginsburg does not have enough sense to make the right choice on the court, she make the statement once that if Trump was elected she would leave this country, so why is she still here
