I’M VOTING FOR A SUPREME COURT
THIS ELECTION DOES NOT JUST IMPACT THE NEXT FOUR YEARS, BUT THE NEXT 20 + YEARS. . . .
On September 18, 2020 Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away, opening a vacancy on the Supreme Court.
Aside from filling Justice Ginsburg place on the Supreme Court it is probable that in the next four years there will be another vacancy for Justice Stephen Breyer (age 81).
Supreme Court Justices are appointed for life and these new justices may serve for the next 20 or more years.
Statement of Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. on September 19, 2020 about Justice Ginsburg:
“Our Nation has lost a jurist of historic stature. We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her — a tireless and resolute champion of justice.”
I will be announcing my Supreme Court Nominee on Saturday, at the White House! Exact time TBA.

President Trump on replacing the vacancy for a Supreme Court Justice later this week:
“I’m just doing my constitutional obligation,” he told reporters as he left for a rally in Ohio. “I have an obligation to do this, so I would rather see it before the election.”
Candidate Biden on withdrawing Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court vacancy:
“If I win this election, President Trump’s nominee should be withdrawn and, as the new president, I should be the one to nominate Justice Ginsburg’s successor,”
