The Democratic presidential candidate and former vice president, Joe Biden, refused to answer whether he would support adding more seats to the Supreme Court if he were to win the election.
At a campaign stop in Phoenix on Thursday, Oct. 8, Biden said, “You will know my opinion on court-packing when the election is over.” The previous evening in Salt Lake City, his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, (D-Calif.), had refused to answer the same question when debating with Vice President Mike Pence.
President Trump spoke in an exclusive interview on “Hannity” on Thursday, Oct. 8, just hours after Biden’s Phoenix trip.
“I think what he said was so disrespectful to the process and to the people,” the president told host Sean Hannity.
“But what that means, really, is that they’re going to do it because obviously, that means 100 percent that’s what they’re going to do. They’re going to end the filibuster, and they’re going to do things that you wouldn’t have thought.”
Judge Amy Coney Barrett has been nominated by the president to fill the vacant seat on the Supreme Court, after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in September. Republicans have vowed to confirm her to the Supreme Court before the election on Nov. 3.
The president has warned that the Democrats will pack the court with progressive judges to prevent a conservative majority, reported Fox News.
“If they ever got in, day one, this would be the first move they make, [to] end the filibuster—the nuclear option, as they call it—and they will do that,” the president said. “Not a week will go by, probably not a day will go by.”
Should Biden win the election, said President Trump, he “won’t be president for three months” before his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, (D-Calif.), “takes over” control.
“She’s the most liberal person in the Senate. She’s not a socialist, she’s a step beyond socialism,” added the president.
After returning to the White House from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Monday, the president said he will be undergoing tests on Friday to make sure he is still negative for the CCP Virus (coronavirus). If so, he plans to return to the campaign trail over the weekend.
The president is concerned the November election will be the “most fraudulent” in America’s history due to mail-in ballots.
“They’re sending out millions and millions and millions of ballots,” the president said. “Where are they sending them? Who’s sending them? Where are they going? Where are they coming back from? How many are fraudulent? Are they being thrown away? Are they being sold? Are they being harvested? It’s a terrible thing, Sean.”
“Despite that, I think we’re going to have a tremendous victory,” he added.
