 The president of the United States, Donald Trump, announced this Saturday his nominee to fill the vacancy left in the United States Supreme Court by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 

At an event held in the White House Rose Garden, Trump introduced Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who, if confirmed by the Senate, will become the third member of the Court chosen by the president, after the appointments of Neil Gorsuch in 2017 and Brett Kavanaugh in 2018. 

“Today I am honored to nominate one of our nation's brightest and most talented legal minds to the Supreme Court. She is a woman of unrivaled achievement, an imposing intellect, excellent credentials and an unwavering loyalty to the Constitution.” 

Before a group of guests including Barrett's family, Trump praised her nominee as a "stellar academic and judge."
