President Trump To Announce Supreme Court Nomination Saturday Afternoon


President Trump will announce his big Supreme Court nomination at five o'clock, Eastern time, Saturday afternoon. 

His pick is expected to be a conservative woman. Longtime liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday after a long fight against cancer and will be buried next week. 

Trump and Senate Republicans are rushing to confirm a new justice before November's election. 

Democrats have accused Republicans of shameless hypocrisy. Republicans prevented President Obama from filling a Supreme Court vacancy in 2016, arguing that it should not happen during a presidential election year.
