Donald Trump said during Saturday’s Republican debate that it’s up to Mitch McConnell 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.”
