WASHINGTON D.C. (ABC NEWS) – President Trump will announce his pick for the supreme court Tuesday night during a prime time presentation from the White House.
The President stated “I have made a very big decision on the United States Supreme Court that is going to be announced tomorrow night from the White House at 8 p.m..
Trump’s choice would fill the vacancy created by the death last year of Antonin Scalia.
The President stated at the 3rd presidential debate “The justices that I am going to appoint will be pro-life. They will have a conservative bent. They will be protecting the second amendment.” Trump’s short list is down to two: Judges Neil Goruch and Thomas Hardiman.
Hardiman, 51, serves on the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals with President Trump’s sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, who, sources tell ABC News, highly recommended him to her brother.
Gorsuch, 49, serves on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals and has been called Scalia 2.0 because he echoes Scalia’s judicial philosophy and his writing style.
President Trump had stated “I think that the person I pick will be big, big, uh, I think people are going to love it. I think Evangelicals, Christians will love my pick.”
