Trump Set to Announce Supreme Court Pick This Week

( – The passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday, September 18, leaves one empty seat in the 9-person high court. President Donald Trump hopes to fill the seat before the November 3 election to secure a Conservative majority.

In an interview with “Fox & Friends” on Monday, September 21, President Trump promised to announce his pick to fill the high court vacancy on Friday or Saturday, after memorial services for Justice Ginsburg have concluded.

Aids and advisors to the president anticipate one of the following Appeals Court judges will be chosen, although nothing is certain:

  • Judge Amy Coney Barrett
  • Judge Barbara Logoa
  • Judge Allison Jones Rushing

However, the nomination of a new Supreme Court Justice before the election will not happen without protest. Jon Cooper, former Chair of the Democratic Coalition explains:

President Trump has over three months left in his first term to nominate a new justice. But, only time will tell whether or not the Senate will confirm them and install another Conservative justice to this life-long appointment.
