Trump Has Reportedly Already Picked Who He Wants to Replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg

President Donald Trump already has someone in mind for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg‘s seat and according to an Axios report, he’s had a name in mind for a while.

And the person’s name? It is Amy Coney Barrett.

As per Axios:

As he was deliberating last year over replacing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, President Trump told confidants he had big plans for Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

I’m saving her for Ginsburg,” Trump said of Barrett, according to three sources familiar with the president’s private comments. Trump used that exact line with a number of people, including in a private conversation with an adviser two days before announcing Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.

Ginsburg, by the way also has plans for her SCOTUS seat. Last year, she announced she thinks she has at least “five more years” on the bench.
