President Donald Trump has said he expects to announce his nomination for the Supreme Court on Friday or Saturday, after funeral services for Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

He told Fox & Friends on Monday that he had a list of five finalists, “probably four”, and that he is pushing for a confirmation vote before election day.

Mr Trump disparaged reports that Ms Ginsburg had told her granddaughter it was her wish that a replacement justice not be confirmed until the inauguration of a new president.

“I don’t know that she said that, or was that written out by Adam Schiff and Schumer and Pelosi,” Mr Trump said.

“I would be more inclined to the second … But that sounds like a Schumer deal or maybe a Pelosi or Shifty Schiff,” using his nickname for the California congressman.
