Trump Comments On 200K Coronavirus Deaths In U.S.

President Trump is placing the blame on China for the U.S. hitting 200-thousand coronavirus deaths. Trump called the milestone "a shame" yesterday but added the number could be over two-million if the response wasn't done "properly." U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams spoke about the grim milestone and how to prevent more deaths in the future during an interview on Good Morning America today. The U.S. leads the world in both total cases and number of deaths from the disease.

Beta is expected to move across the Texas coast, eventually moving inland across Louisiana where tropical storm warnings are in effect.


Ginsburg To Be First Woman To Lie In State At Capitol

The late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be the first woman to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol on Friday. Civil rights icon Rosa Parks laid "in honor" at the Capitol after her death in 2005 because she was a private citizen. Justice Ginsburg died this past Friday after a long fight against cancer.

Trump Pushing To Fill Supreme Court Vacancy

President Trump is making it clear he wants to fill the Supreme Court seat left vacant by Friday's passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. He called in to Fox and Friends this morning to say he's eyeing the end of the week to name his pick. Ginsburg died on Friday night at her home in D.C. after battling pancreatic cancer. Before her passing, she made clear her desire that she not be replaced until after Americans have a chance to vote in November. Ginsburg was 87-years old.


Trump Pays Tribute To Ruth Bader Ginsburg At North Carolina Rally

Trump supporters were chanting "fill that seat" at a rally yesterday after the President vowed to choose a replacement for the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. At last night's campaign rally in North Carolina, Trump called Ginsburg a legal giant, and said all Americans can recognize her value even if they might have disagreed with her views. He then quoted the Constitution in saying it was the President's responsibility to replace any vacancies on the Supreme Court. President Obama attempted to fill a seat on the Supreme Court in 2016, but Senate Republicans refused to fill it until a new President was sworn in.

Meanwhile Senate Democrats are considering their options after the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Ginsburg died Friday, leaving a seat open on the high court. Republicans have a majority in the Senate, and are expected to replace the liberal icon with a more conservative judge. On Saturday, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer reportedly told Senate Democrats that if Republicans move forward with the nomination, then "nothing is off the table." Four Republicans would need to vote against the nomination for Democrats to block it.


Prominent Political Figures React To News Of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Death

Prominent political figures are reacting to the news of the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who died Friday at age 87 after a long battle with cancer.

The man who appointed Ginsburg to the Supreme Court, former President Bill Clinton says her 27 years on the high court exceeded his "highest expectations." He argued her landmark opinions on advancing gender equality, the rights of people with disabilities and more moved the nation closer to "a more perfect union." Clinton appointed Ginsburg to the court back in 1993.

Hillary Clinton is praising the life of Ginsburg. Clinton said the Supreme Court justice "paved the way for so many women," including herself. She argued there would never be anybody else like her.

Former President Obama said the justice was a "warrior for gender equality" for the nearly three decades she spent on the Supreme Court. He added she "inspired the generations who followed her."

President Trump says America is mourning "the loss of a titan of the law." Trump argued her opinions inspired Americans and "generations of great legal minds." He called her a "fighter to the end."

Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts said the "nation has lost a jurist of historic stature."

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo tweeted that Ginsburg left "an indelible mark on America." He said she broke barriers during her extraordinary career

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says Ginsburg's seat should not be filled until there's a new president. He wants voters to have a say in their new Supreme Court justice. He tweeted Ginsburg was a giant in American history and would want everyone to fight hard to preserve her legacy.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi calls Ginsburg's death an "incalculable loss for our democracy." The California Democrat said every American family has benefited from Ginsburg's "brilliant legacy and courage."

Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell says the nation grieves alongside Ginsburg's family, friends and colleagues.

Former Vice President and current Democratic Party candidate for President, Joe Biden is calling Ginsburg an American hero. He says she was a relentless voice in the pursuit of equal justice under law.

Thee court's eldest justice had suffered a series of health setbacks in her later years, including multiple bouts with cancer. She was born in Brooklyn in 1933 and attended Harvard Law School and Columbia Law School.

She was instrumental in beginning the Women's Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union in 1971. She served as General Counsel for the organization from 1973 to 1980 and later on its National Board of Directors.

Ginsburg was appointed in 1980 as a Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. She was nominated as an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court by President Clinton and took her seat on the bench August 10th, 1993. She was the second woman to serve on the nation's highest court.

NBC News Radio -- specifically you, Cameron Fairchild: I'm putting you on notice for your repeated use of the word "Democrat" in the newscasts this am. I am a "Democrat" and a "Democratic" voter. The first is a noun, the latter a modifier. When referring to the party, the correct word is "Democratic" (modifies the noun party) not "Democrat party". Quit echoing right wing nut jobs in your reporting. We see you...
