translated from Spanish: U.S. Supreme Court Battle for Quota: Trump Calls Senate to Choose and Biden to Wait election

President Donald Trump urged the Republican-led Senate on Saturday to consider “without delay” his next Nominee to take up the post in the Supreme Court that was vacated by the passing of Minister Ruth Bader Ginsburg, just six weeks before the election.” They put us in this position of power and importance in making decisions for the people who so proudly elected us,” Trump tweeted, “the most important of which has long been regarded as the selection of members of the United States Supreme Court. We have this obligation, without delay!” Senate Republican majority leader Mitch McConnell promised Friday night, hours after Ginsburg’s decay, to call for a vote for whoever Trump nominees. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said instead that any vote should come after the November 3 election. “Voters must elect the president and the president must elect the magistrate who will be submitted for consideration by the Senate,” Biden opined. The Democratic nominee spoke to the press after returning to Wilmington, Delaware, from Minnesota, where he made campaign stopovers. Minister Gingsburg, a giant women’s rights advocate, died Friday at her home in Washington at the age of 87. Ginsburg died of complications from pancreatic cancer, the top U.S. court reported. Ginsburg announced in July that he would have chemotherapy due to injuries to his liver, one of several cancer battles. The minister was in her later years the undisputed leader of the liberal wing of the court and had become a kind of star for her admirers. Young women in particular seemed to venerate the court’s Jewish grandmother for her defense of women’s and minority rights, and for the strength and resilience she showed in the face of personal losses and health crises. His health problems included five cancer fights that began in 1999, falls that resulted in broken ribs, the insertion of a stent to unlock an artery, and several hospitalizations after he turned 75. Ginsburg resisted calls from liberals to retire during Barack Obama’s presidency at a time when Democrats controlled the Senate and it was feasible to appoint a replacement with similar views. Now, it’s almost certain that Trump will seek ginsburg’s successor to be ratified by the Senate under Republican control to make the conservative court lean even further to the right.
