Watch: Rutgers Senate expert on Trump’s Supreme Court gambit

Ross Baker, an expert on American government and U.S. legislative politics, discusses the president's strategy

In a somber and intimate ceremony, a small group of family and lawmakers paid their respects to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday. Even in her death, she continues breaking barriers as the first woman to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol.

But Saturday, all eyes will be on President Donald Trump, who is expected to formally name his nominee to the court, despite Ginsburg’s dying wish that she not be replaced until a new president is inaugurated.

How will this all play out in the U.S. Senate over the next few weeks leading up to the election? Rutgers University’s Ross Baker, an expert on the U.S. Senate, goes on the record with Chief Political Correspondent Michael Aron.
