“Vote for him to go!”, have shouted part of the people who were in the vicinity of the Supreme, where the remains of Ginsburg so that citizens and authorities can show their respects, reports NBC News. The coffin remains in the outer portico to avoid the accumulation of people inside the court.
Less than a minute
Trump has come with his wife, Melania, and both have been less than a minute by the coffin, at which time the screams have occurred. Immediately afterwards the presidential convoy has returned to the White House.
The death of Ginsburg, of the progressive current, has unleashed a political debate in the United States for the Trump’s rush to appoint a new judge before the November elections, in such a way as to ensure that a conservative magistrate will fill the vacant post.
The president will give the name of his nominee – he himself has said that it will be a woman – on Saturday and the Republican Party has already guaranteed the votes needed in the Senate so that the candidacy is submitted to a vote at least in the plenary session of the Upper House.
