The U.S. Senate voted to confirm President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett on October 26, 2020.
Supreme Court justices take both the constitutional oath and the judicial oath before starting. During the swearing-in ceremony, which was held at the White House, Barrett said she would work independently of both the political branches without fear or favor.
Trump has praised Barrett by saying that “she is one of [the] nation's most brilliant legal scholars”, adding that she would “make an outstanding justice”.
Barrett is the third appointed by the Republican President, after Neil Gorsuch in 2017 and Brett Kavanaugh in 2018. Only one Republican, Senator Susan Collins, voted against the President's nominee.
