Aprominent psychiatrist who spent years studying Nazi Germany has called for mental health professionals to speak out about President Trump's "falsification of reality" ahead of the election, warning that his attacks on the truth echo those of the Nazis.

The prospect of an expedited Senate confirmation vote has sparked furious pushback from Democrats desperate to stop Trump moving the court lastingly to the right.

Two Republican senators have also registered their opposition to any rushed vote to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the popular liberal justice who died Friday at 87.

Biden, speaking Sunday in Philadelphia, accused Trump of exercising "raw political power" by attempting to "ram" through his court choice amidst a bitterly fought election campaign.
