One of the most consequential decisions a president can make is appointing justices to the U.S. Supreme Court. The passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on September 18, 2020, opened the door for President Trump to nominate someone to fill the vacancy. On Saturday, Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court. Barrett is currently a circuit judge of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
