Trump's Supreme Court Nomination to Preempt TV Programming

Trump's Supreme Court Nomination to Preempt TV Programming

Students at New York University recently expressed their disdain over President Trump's pick to replace Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy.

"I'm very confident with this president's enthusiasm and with [Senate Majority] Leader McConnell's enthusiasm that they can get anybody confirmed", Leonard Leo, who is on leave from the Federalist Society to help the White House with the selection, told ABC's "This Week." "They're good judges. I think they'd be fine justices of the Supreme Court". The White House hoped to keep the details under wraps until he rolls out his pick from the East Room.

The source told Reuters that Amy Coney Barrett of IN, a Trump-appointed judge on the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, was still IN contention but that the Republican president had been asking more questions about the other two, who have more extensive judicial records.

President Trump has said he'll name a candidate on July 9, but many students criticized the nonexistent nominee when asked for their opinion, Phillips reported. "And I believe this person will do a great job", Trump said, according to ABC News. "But I'm getting very close to making a final decision". On Saturday, he tweeted that a "Big decision" was coming soon.

Leo said that it was impossible to predict the positions of any of the leading candidates for the seat on abortion.




"I think we can confirm any of the four names being mentioned", Blunt said on NBC's "Meet the Press".

Claire McCaskill (D) is already one of the most vulnerable lawmakers up for re-election in November - President Trump won her state by 19 points in 2016 - and the looming Supreme Court vote is playing right into her Republican opponent's hand, Politico reports.

The president and White House officials involved in the process have fielded calls and messages and have been on the receiving end of public pleas and op-eds for or against specific candidates since Kennedy announced on June 27 that he would retire this summer.

Kavanaugh, 53, was picked by former Republican President George W. Bush to serve on the influential Washington-based appeals court in 2003.
