US President Joe Biden is looking to make a monumental change to United States democracy during his term as president. He announced that he will appoint a Black woman to fill the soon-to-be-vacant seat on the Supreme Court.
Biden To Make Huge Decision Regarding The Supreme Court
Supreme Court Judge Stephen Breyer is retiring from the nation’s highest court after almost 28 years on the bench. The liberal-leaning Justice is 83. His absence from the court leaves space for the president to appoint his first justice, an opportunity Mr. Biden is determined to make impactful.
At the White House on Thursday, Biden confirmed that his new nominee appointee will be the first Black woman on the highest court, calling the transformational moment “long overdue.”
He also vowed to name a successor for Justice Stephen Breyer by the end of February.
