Judge Amy Coney Barrett, President Donald Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court, and the president walk out to the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, for his public announcement, on Sept. 26, 2020.

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump said Sunday that confirmation of his Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett will go "quickly" but his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, implored the Republican-led Senate to hold off on voting on her nomination until after the Nov. 3 election to "let the people decide."

Speaking at a press conference at the White House, the president spotlighted Barrett's Roman Catholic religion, portraying her as a victim of attacks on her faith. But it's her conservative approach to the law, particularly health care access that is drawing opposition from Democrats, not her private beliefs.

"It's a disgrace," Trump said. He vowed she will be confirmed "very quickly."
