President Joe Biden has affirmed his pledge to nominate the first Black woman to the US Supreme Court, saying it was “long overdue."

Biden was reportedly forced into promising to nominate the first black woman to sit on the Supreme Court in exchange for a key senator's support that helped turn his 2020 election campaign around.

A number of judges are being considered by Mr Biden for an upcoming vacancy on the US’s highest court after it emerged on Wednesday that one of its three liberal judges was planning to step down.

All are black women, suggesting Mr Biden intends to honour a campaign pledge made in February 2020 at a debate ahead of the crucial South Carolina primary.
