Trump is making his view known in a tweet Saturday, the day after Ginsburg died.

He says, “We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who so proudly elected us."

He says the “most important” decision "has long been considered to be the selection of United States Supreme Court Justices. We have this obligation, without delay!”
