Trump: Dems would pick next justice more rapidly

United States President Donald Trump during a campaign event in Virginia claimed the Democratic party would expedite the selection of the next Supreme Court justice if given an option.

"They would do the same, just maybe more rapidly," Trump claimed, adding his administration has the right to appoint the person to take late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's place on the bench as that is their right, having won the election in 2016.

"We're gonna be announcing somebody great," he asserted, saying he thinks the biggest thing the American president can do is appoint justices to the high court as it "sets the tone for the country."
