Following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with only weeks left before the 2020 election, some activists and people with high profiles have called for action to resist President Donald Trump’s potential selection. Some even threatened violence.
Trump’s nomination to the court is Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who has already faced smears for her Catholic faith, including by Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who said that “The conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you,” which is “of concern.”
The president’s nomination now requires a vote from the Senate.
