Despite blocking President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee in an election year, Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell vowed in a statement on Friday night that “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate”. As two Republicans come out against confirming a nominee before the election, Democrats say no option is off the table in their fight to block Trump.

"WASHINGTON — President Trump escalated his attacks on “left-wing demonstrators” and “far-left mobs” on Thursday, portraying himself as a defender of American heritage against revolutionary fanatics and arguing for a new “pro-American” curriculum in the nation’s schools.
Speaking at the National Archives Museum, Mr. Trump vowed to counter what he called an emerging classroom narrative that “America is a wicked and racist nation,” and he said he would create a new “1776 Commission” to help “restore patriotic education to our schools.” The president reiterated his condemnations of demonstrators who tear down monuments to historical American figures, and he even sought to link the Democratic presidential nominee, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., to the removal of a founding father’s statue in Mr. Biden’s home state, Delaware."
