Trump nominates judge Amy Coney Barrett to Supreme Court

President Donald Trump on Saturday nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett, 48, to the US Supreme Court.

“Today it is my honor to nominate one of our nation’s most brilliant and gifted legal minds to the Supreme Court,” Trump said at a Rose Garden event that was attended by Barrett, her husband and their seven children.

“She is a woman of unparalleled achievement, towering intellect, sterling credentials and unyielding loyalty to the (US) Constitution, Judge Amy Coney Barrett.”

Her nomination comes just over a week after the death of longtime Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a staunch liberal, on September 18.
