President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden traveled Monday to battleground states — Ohio and Wisconsin, respectively — as the drama over replacing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg continues to play out in Washington. In remarks at an aluminum foundry, Biden criticized the president over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic while also making an appeal to Trump voters, telling them, “You will be seen, heard and respected by me.”
Trump met Monday with Amy Coney Barrett, who is at the top of his Supreme Court shortlist. He also told reporters that he will “probably” nominate a replacement for Ginsburg on Saturday, after services for the justice are held. Ginsburg will lie in repose at the Supreme Court on Wednesday and Thursday and lie in state Friday at the Capitol.
