Excerpt from Fox News:

Former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard took issue with President Biden’s pledge to nominate a Black woman to the Supreme Court, arguing that the decision should not be made based on race or gender.

“Biden’s mistake: He should not be choosing a Supreme Court justice based on the color of their skin or sex, but rather on their qualifications & commitment to uphold our Constitution & the freedoms guaranteed to all Americans in that document which is the foundation of our nation,” Gabbard, who represented Hawaii’s 2nd congressional district for eight years as a Democrat, tweeted Friday.

While on the campaign trail, President Biden pledged that he would nominate a Black woman to the Supreme Court — and he was presented with his first opportunity to do so this week, when liberal Justice Stephen Breyer announced he is retiring this summer.
