Trump nominates judge Amy Coney Barrett to Supreme Court

  • September 26, 2020

Donald Trump has nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, the US president said Saturday, in a highly anticipated announcement that sets up a political showdown between Republicans and Democrats in the Senate.

Barrett, 48, is a constitutional scholar and conservative jurist who Trump named to the federal appeals bench in 2017.

Her nomination comes just over a week after the death of longtime Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a staunch liberal, on September 18.

If the Republican-held Senate confirms Barrett’s nomination, the party will swing the nine-member Supreme Court to a 6-3 conservative majority.
