Here’s a quote from President Trump from 2016, when President Barrack Obama was choosing a nominee, that was published in a Politico article:
President Barack Obama plans to announce his Supreme Court nominee on Wednesday, but Donald Trump thinks the Senate shouldn’t give the pick a hearing.
“I don’t think so, no I think they should do what they’re doing,” the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination said on “Good Morning America” Wednesday. “I think they should wait until the next president and let the next president pick.”Politico
