President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he will announce his nomination for the next Supreme Court justice on Saturday.
Trump is considering several candidates to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died last Friday.
The Republican president said in a Twitter post he would make his announcement of the nomination at the White House, at a time to be determined.
Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, said Tuesday he would vote on Trump’s nominee if the the nomination reaches the floor in the Senate.
Democrats oppose Trump naming a nominee, at least until the presidential election is resolved.
Democrats argue that if former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee, wins the election, he should be allowed to pick Ginsburg’s replacement, not a lame duck Trump.
