Biden: As President I’d Be Honored to Appoint the First African American Women to the Supreme Court

‘Our administration was able to appoint first Latina to the Supreme Court’


BIDEN: “And look, in terms of making everything in the corridors of power reflect what America looks like, that includes the White House, that includes the staff there, that includes the cabinet, and that includes the Supreme Court and the Congress. Our administration was able to appoint the first Latina to the Supreme Court, a woman I asked to swear me in privately before the public swearing in, Justice Sotomayor. As president, I'd be honored, honored, to appoint the first African-American woman to the court, because it should look like the country. It's long past time."
