FAYETTEVILLE, N.C./WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Saturday he will nominate a woman to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court, a move that would tip the court further to the right following the death of liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“I will be putting forth a nominee next week. It will be a woman,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina. “I think it should be a woman because I actually like women much more than men.”

As Trump spoke, supporters chanted: “Fill that seat.”

He praised Ginsburg as a “legal giant ... Her landmark rulings, fierce devotion to justice and her courageous battle against cancer inspire all Americans.”

Earlier, he praised two women as possible replacements: conservatives he elevated to federal appeals courts.

1. Trump's replacement for Justice Ginsberg will be like Thomas replacing Marshall

Someone who is the exact opposite.

15. Thomas was an extremely cynical

slap in he face of the legacy of Justice Thurgood Marshall. Was not surprised at that choice by Bush-one. Yet he was a repthuglikkkan and ex-CIA director and on and on we've gone to now.

4. Why can't he just speak the truth?

"Next week I am going to nominate Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. The only qualifications she has are being to the right of Benito Mussolini and being willing to put me back in the White House against the will of the electorate, but in 2020 that's enough."

11. Do the Rs really WANT to overturn Roe?

Or is it just a big bluff, as many have surmised? Teen girls dying, welfare rolls growing as young people are forced to give up jobs and education to raise kids, and a ton of guys being held responsible for child support, isn't a good look for them.

12. Meanwhile, Canada and Mexico are licking their collective chops...

...at the emerging abortion tourism industry. Well, perhaps not licking their chops, but they will for sure take advantage of it. For those who can afford it anyway.

19. Overturning Roe will cause abortion to revert to a state matter

It's a horror, to be sure, but abortion will be available in heavily pro-choice blue states.

23. Well, I was projecting further out just a bit. When Roe is overturned...

...no doubt criminalizing abortion would be next.

13. My guess is Allison Jones Rushing

At 38 years old, she would be a baby in Supreme Court years.

14. My bet: Amy Barrett, "I'm saving her for Ginsburg," Trump said of Barrett

Mar 2019

Trump "saving" Judge Amy Barrett for Ruth Bader Ginsburg seat


As he was deliberating last year over replacing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, President Trump told confidants he had big plans for Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

"I'm saving her for Ginsburg," Trump said of Barrett, according to three sources familiar with the president's private comments. Trump used that exact line with a number of people, including in a private conversation with an adviser two days before announcing Brett Kavanaugh's nomination.

Barrett is a favorite among conservative activists, many of whom wanted her to take Kennedy’s spot.

Barrett has the inside track "in a very specific sense," said a source who's discussed Barrett with Trump. "She is the most known quantity right now amongst the women on the list. And she also has the inside track in the sense that she was kind of battle-tested for having gone through a confirmation already."

16. Maybe he will pick a woman who daily smokes 2 packs, drinks a fifth of whiskey,

eats only fast food, and never exercises.
