Trump says he is “constitutionally obligated” to nominate someone to serve on the Supreme Court:
Trump is correct. He is constitutional obligated to nominate someone to serve on the Supreme Court. So was Barack Obama in 2016.
And here was Donald Trump in 2016 on whether or not Obama should pick the next Supreme Court justice:
I think the next president should make the pick,” Trump said. “And I think they shouldn’t go forward, and I believe, you know, I’m pretty much in line with what the Republicans are saying. I think that the next president should make the pick. We don’t have a very long distance to wait. Certainly they could wait it out very easily. But I think the next president should make the pick. I would be not in favor of going forward.
What has changed, Donald?
