After coming under fire from President Donald Trump and Republicans about whether he backed expanding the Supreme Court to more than nine justices, Joe Biden said Monday that he’s “not a fan of court packing.”
“I’ve already spoken on — I’m not a fan of court packing, but I don’t want to get off on that whole issue. I want to keep focused,” the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee said in an interview with Cincinnati’s WKRC.
Biden and Harris dodged the question at both of their respective debates. Last weekend, Biden created a stir when he said in response to a reporter’s question that voters “don’t deserve” to know his position on the issue, because it would only be a distraction. He had said he would reveal his stance after Nov. 3.
