BREAKING: Trump Announces Supreme Court Pick
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald J. Trump has decided on who he will pick for a lifetime position on the U.S. Supreme Court.
After Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement in June, President Trump turned to a list of contenders. He’d narrowed the list down to four conservative federal appellate judges: Raymond Kethledge, Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, and Thomas Hardiman.
The appointment is a significant win for conservatives. Reuters reports: The Republican president, with an opportunity to further put his stamp on the court with the second appointee of his 18 months in office, is expected to choose among four judges with strong conservative credentials.
The president announced his selection in a televised address. Watch below.
