US President Donald Trump is likely to nominate a woman candidate to the US Supreme Court to fill the vacancy created by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“I will be putting forth a nominee next week. I could say most likely it would be a woman. I think I can say that. If somebody were to ask me now I would say that a woman would be in first place,” Trump told supporters at an election rally in North Carolina on Saturday.
