President Donald Trump has announced that he will make known his Supreme Court nominee this upcoming Saturday, according to Fox News.
Trump took to Twitter early Tuesday morning, saying "I will be announcing my Supreme Court Nominee on Saturday, at the White House! Exact time TBA."
Trump has promised to announce a pick for the high court in a timely manner following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who passed away on Friday at the age of 87 due to cancer complications.
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) also announced Tuesday that he would be coming out in support of the Senate voting on Trump's pick to replace Ginsburg, according to Axios.
"The historical precedent of election year nominations is that the Senate generally does not confirm an opposing party’s nominee but does confirm a nominee of its own," Romney said in a statement.
"The Constitution gives the president the power to nominate and the Senate the authority to provide advice and consent on Supreme Court nominees," he added.
"Accordingly, I intend to follow the Constitution and precedent in considering the president’s nominee. If the nominee reaches the Senate floor, I intend to vote based upon their qualifications."
