Democratic Party presidential candidate Joe Biden urged to postpone the appointment of Amy Coney Barrett, nominated by American leader Donald Trump as a member of the Supreme Court.
вЂњThe Senate should not take measures concerning this vacancy [in the Supreme Court] until the Americans elect a new president and a new Congress,вЂќ Biden said.
Earlier, Trump explained the decision to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, judge of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, as a Supreme Court candidate. He expressed the hope for a quick procedure to review and approve the nomination of a new member of the Supreme Court of Justice in the U.S. Senate.
The Supreme Court seat became vacant after the death of its oldest member, 87-year-old Ruth Bader Ginzburg, on September 18. She was the second woman in U.S. history to become a Supreme Court Judge, a position she held for over 27 years. According to National Public Radio, a few days before her death, Ginzburg told her granddaughter that she most wanted to live to see the presidential election so that if she died, another president would fill the vacancy.
