Trump says he thinks Supreme Court will rule on election outcome so 9th justice needed

/ / News

President Donald Trump on Wednesday suggested the Supreme Court will have to make a ruling on the Nov. 3 presidential election, so a new justice for the high court should be confirmed before Election Day. “I think it’s better if you go before the election, because I think this scam that the Democrats are pulling — it’s a scam — the scam will be before the United States Supreme Court,” Trump told reporters at the White House, in an apparent reference to efforts to increase mail-in voting during the coronavirus pandemic. “I think having a 4-4 situation is not a good situation, if you get that.”
