President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday morning that he will reveal his nominee for late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s vacated seat on Saturday.
“I will be announcing my Supreme Court Nominee on Saturday, at the White House!” he tweeted. “Exact time TBA.”
During a “Fox and Friends” interview on Monday, Trump said he would make the announcement after the memorial services for Ginsburg, which are scheduled for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday,” out of “respect” for the justice.
However, Ginsburg will not be buried until next week at Arlington National Cemetery, according to SCOTUS spokesperson Kathleen Arberg.
