Mitch McConnell Admits He's Saving SCOTUS Nomination For Trump

Mitch McConnell finally just came out and said it.

So now it's official. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has admitted that he is holding the Supreme Court nomination for President Trump.

Transcript via PoliticusUSA:

We put Obamacare repeal on the President’s desk. He vetoed it. Donald Trump would sign it.

We passed a bill to finally build the Keystone pipeline. Obama vetoed it. Donald Trump would sign it.

We passed a bill to defund Planned Parenthood. Obama vetoed it. Donald Trump would sign it.

And on that sad day when we lost Justice Scalia, I made another pledge that Obama would not fill his seat.

That honor will go to Donald Trump next year.
