WASHINGTON (AA) - US President Donald Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett on Saturday to fill the Supreme Court seat of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Barrett is "one of our nation's most brilliant and gifted legal minds,” Trump said at the White House. "She is a woman of unparalleled achievement, towering intellect, sterling credentials and unyielding loyalty to the Constitution."
Barrett, 48, serves on the 7th US Circuit Court of Appeals and is Trump's third Supreme Court appointee, following Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
Ginsburg died last Friday of metastatic pancreatic cancer.
