Obama was blocked by McConnell.
Republicans blocked Obama over practically everything he tried to do, especially when it involved trying to bring our troops home.

There is nothing in the constitution that says he can't. Obama was blocked by McConnell. Trump won't have that issue.
Just days before her death, as her strength waned, Ginsburg dictated this statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera: "My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed."

As Justice Ginsburg passed her 80th birthday and 20th anniversary on the Supreme Court bench during President Barack Obama’s second term, she shrugged off a chorus of calls for her to retire in order to give a Democratic president the chance to name her replacement. She planned to stay “as long as I can do the job full steam,” she would say, sometimes adding, “There will be a president after this one, and I’m hopeful that that president will be a fine president.”

Why has it taken Trump three years to do anything to help Puerto Rico after being devastated by Hurricane Maria?
You mean other than the pallets of supplies that were sent and then left in a 43,000-square-foot warehouse until they were found this past January? Back when residents of Puerto Rico were calling for the Governor to resign over it?

So... what if Trump wins in November? Does she want us to wait another 4 years?

Justices are suppose to be politically neutral. Trumps picks have already gone against party lines on some issues. The Supreme Court Justices are suppose to be the only 9 people not beholden to a political party. Judges in general are suppose to rule on law, not party talking points.
