Donald Trump’s nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court was both praised and assaulted countrywide. While Democrats and liberal gatherings rushed to tear Trump and request a vote postponed until after the Nov. 3 presidential election, Republicans and conservative associations immediately hailed the decision of the 48-year-old mother of seven from Indiana to supplant the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Joe Biden opposed Barrett for her resistance to the Affordable Care Act, repeated Schumer’s idea of a ban on picking another justice until one year from now.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the Barrett pick was propelled by Trump’s longing to smash the Affordable Care Act in the Congress and the courts as he destroys the mainstays of health and financial security in this nation. Each vote to adjust this nominee is a vote to destroy health care. Barrett, joined by her better half and their seven kids, got an overwhelming applause from the Rose Garden audience as Trump presented her as the nominee, with the president anticipating a direct and brief affirmation. Sen. Mitch McConnell, who called for Trump to supplant Ginsburg scarcely an hour after RBG’s demise was reported, adulated Barrett as the ideal decision.
