On Tuesday, President Donald Trump cheered an ABC News report that Joe Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), will lead Democrats’ efforts to thwart the president’s efforts to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
“Kamala Harris is poised to become a leading figure in the Democratic opposition to Pres. Trump’s Supreme Court pick,” ABC News tweeted, linking to an article with the same sub-headline, titled, “Supreme Court fight could elevate Kamala Harris' profile.”
Instead of responding with fear, Pres. Trump replied with a post expressing delight that the Democrat’s presidential candidate will be heading the fight against his pick’s confirmation:
“Great news. It will show how incompetent she is!”
Trump tweeted his reaction just three minutes after he posted a tweet announcing that he will revealing the name of his nominee for the Supreme Court on Saturday, the day after Ginsburg lies in state at the U.S. Capitol’s National Statutory Hall:
“I will be announcing my Supreme Court Nominee on Saturday, at the White House! Exact time TBA.”
