US President Trump to nominate female judge for Supreme Court

Vastavam web: President Donald Trump is likely to nominate a female candidate to the US Supreme Court to fill the vacancy created by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. “I will be putting forth a nominee next week. I could say most likely it would be a woman. I think I can say that. If somebody were to ask me now I would say that a woman would be in first place, Trump told supporters at an election rally in North Carolina on Saturday.

Ginsburg, a history-making jurist, feminist icon and a champion of women’s rights and social justice, died of cancer on Friday. She was 87. “We have great respect for the process. This has happened numerous times and every time there was a nominee as you know. There’s been many occasions where frankly it turned out to be during a presidential year,” he told reporters. In an election year, so far, 29 supreme court judges have been nominated. I think we’re going to start the process extremely soon. We will have a nominee very soon, he said.
