Trump urges Supreme Court nomination ‘without delay’

WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump on Saturday urged Republican lawmakers to back his upcoming nomination for the Supreme Court “without delay” as the issue roiled the election campaign.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a liberal stalwart, died on Friday, opening a crucial vacancy on the court and setting off a fierce political battle before the November 3 vote.
Trump tweeted that the “most important” decision that Republicans had been elected to make was “the selection of United States Supreme Court Justices.” “We have this obligation, without delay!” he added.
Democrats have demanded a delay in the nomination until after the election. (DPA)
