President Donald Trump on Saturday nominated Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, picking a strong conservative to replace the late liberal justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Trump called Barrett, who stood at his side in the White House Rose Garden, “one of the most brilliant and gifted legal minds.”

Trump also predicted  that Barrett, will get a “very quick” confirmation in the Republican-controlled Senate. “It should be a straightforward and prompt confirmation,” Trump said at the White House.

Democrats have complained that Trump should not be able to name a new justice so close to the presidential election, in which he is currently behind in the polls. However, Republicans have the votes in the Senate to confirm Barrett.

Republicans almost certain to confirm Barrett, Trump will have been able to tilt the high court to the right on the eve of his difficult reelection attempt.
