Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said today that Americans won’t “tolerate” Democrats blocking a president’s Supreme Court nominee, NCRM reports.
The five-term Kentucky Republican this afternoon took Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to task before reporters, blasting the newly-promoted Democrat’s insistence his party should delay a nominee’s confirmation to the nation’s highest court should Trump choose a candidate who is not in the mainstream.
“The American people simply will not tolerate” Democrats blocking a Supreme Court nominee, McConnell told reporters. “I noticed my counterpart Sen. Schumer announced yesterday that their goal was to apparently never fill the Supreme Court vacancy,” McConnell said. “That’s kind of an expansion of the Biden rule,” he quipped.
