(FOX NEWS) – Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Sunday called on the U.S. Senate to hold off voting on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, after Trump predicted that Barrett could be confirmed well before November’s election.
In remarks delivered Sunday morning, Biden claimed that the right thing to do would be to wait to fill the vacant seat on the court until after January’s inauguration.
“The Senate has to stand strong for our democracy,” Biden said in remarks Sunday afternoon. He went on to say that senators should “take a step back from the brink,” and that “this is a time to de-escalate.”
Biden went on to claim that “the very soul of our country is at stake” in November’s election, as issues such as abortion, immigration and the environment hang in the balance. He said that is why people are going to the polls this year.
