The official U.S. time - snapshot
Note: In February of 2016, Supreme Court Justice Anthonin Scalia died. The Constitution says that the President of the United States is responsible for naming a replacement to the court. Republican leaders said they would NOT allow a nominee, named by President Barrack Obama, to be brought to the Senate for a vote. They argued the NEXT president, who would take office in January 2017, should make that choice. With almost 10 months left in office, do you think that decision was correct? Why is the selection of someone to the Supreme Court such a very important one? Interestingly, should there be a vacancy on the Supreme Court in the coming months before the 2020 election, the same Republicans are saying that Donald Trump SHOULD be able to appoint a person to the bench. What do you think changed the position of these Republicans?
