President Trump hastily appointed Judge Barrett to replace the late Justice Ginsburg.

The opposition Democratic Party strongly opposes that the president who won the presidential election should appoint a new Supreme Court Justice, but the Republican Party is in a position to swiftly end the ratification before the presidential election.

The nomination of the Supreme Court Justice is emerging as a key variable in the presidential election.

This is Kim Yoon-soo, correspondent from Washington.


President Trump appoints Barrett's 7th Federal High Court judge to the new federal Supreme Court.

It's been a week since former Justice Ginsburg passed away.

At the nomination ceremony, I urged the senators to quickly confirm the decision.

[Trump/US President: It will be approved simply and quickly.

It will be very easy.

good luck.

It will be very soon.]

This year, 48-year-old Barrett, a conservative, warned of excessive political interpretation of the nomination for Supreme Court Justice.

[Barrett/US Supreme Court Nominee: Judges are not policy makers.

Judges must reject their policy views and decide decisively.]

However, the issue of appointing a successor is already a key issue for the presidential election.

The ruling party is saying that it will finish the Senate approval by the end of next month, before the presidential election, and the opposition party is holding on.

[Durbin/US Democratic Senator: Given that the nominee for the Supreme Court can serve for the next 30 years, it is absurd to confirm it in less than 30 days.] If

nominee Barrett takes office as Supreme Court for life The U.S. Supreme Court has an absolute advantage structure of 6 conservatives and 3 progressives.

There is a high possibility that conservative rulings will continue in major issues such as abortion and medical insurance, and even the evaluation of Barrett's nominee has become President Trump's de facto running mate.
