Trump still pondering Supreme Court pick as big reveal nears

Trump Supreme Court Nomination

The only problem is, he hasn't announced his nominee yet. But Trump's final decision remained far from clear, and the president wants to keep the guessing game going. I've argued cases before the Supreme Court for them.

"It is extraordinary", Blumenthal said.

While final nominees will be known only when Mr. Trump makes the announcement, this would be for the second time that Mr. Thapar was not able to make the final cut after being interviewed by Mr. Trump.

Reuters reported last week that conservative federal appeals court judges Brett Kavanaugh and Kethledge are the two most serious contenders being considered by Trump for the U.S. Supreme Court, citing a source familiar with the process. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News. "I've never seen a president of the United States in effect make himself a puppet of outside groups and choose from a group of right-wing fringe ideologues that are prepared on this list".

"I think we can confirm any of the four names being mentioned", Blunt said on NBC's "Meet the Press". Richard Blumenthal, Democratic senator from CT, told ABC's This Week that it posed a fundamental threat to abortion rights.

Justice Antonin Scalia died after the court heard arguments in the case but before the decision was handed down. The Trump administration signaled Tuesday that it planned to reinstate the Bush philosophy.

Leo said, however, that ultimately Trump would succeed at lining up conservative support for anyone he selected.

In an earlier interview on "This Week", Stephanopoulos asked Leonard Leo, who is on leave from the conservative Federalist Society to advise Trump on his Supreme Court pick, about the concern that anyone on Trump's list of potential nominees would oppose Roe v. Wade. The American people deserve to have their say on senators who may serve as a check on the president, do they not?

The president also was active on Twitter attacking special counsel Robert Mueller, a Republican, who was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, another Republican named to his post by Trump.

"This next nomination will be the swing vote to overturn Roe v Wade and equally important to eviscerate the protections of millions of Americans who suffer from existing conditions and other healthcare rights along with workers' rights, gay rights, voting rights".
