US presidential candidate, Biden condemns incumbent, Trump’s plan to hurriedly replace late Justice Ginsburg at Supreme Court



Donald Trump’s move to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the presidential election is an abuse of power

Trump’s Democratic rival Joe Biden made the declaration yesterday

Mr Trump has said he will next week nominate a woman to replace the longstanding liberal justice.

Mr Biden has urged Senate Republicans to delay a confirmation vote.

Ginsburg, a liberal icon and feminist standard-bearer, died on Friday aged 87.

Democrats fear Republicans will vote to lock in a decades-long conservative majority on the country’s highest court.
