Donald Trump said during Saturday’s Republican debate that it’s up to [crscore]Mitch McConnell[/crscore] and Republicans in Congress to delay the nomination filling the Supreme Court spot vacated by the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
“If the president, and if I were president now, I would certainly try to nominate a justice,” Trump explained. “I hope our Senate, Mitch and the entire group will be able to do something about it.”
“This is a tremendous blow to conservatism and frankly to our country,” he added. “I think it’s up to Mitch to McConnell and everybody to stop it. It’s called delay, delay, delay.”
