Donald Trump urged to avoid controversial Supreme Court pick

Report President Trump Has Made His Decision on a Supreme Court Nominee

Ky. Judge Not On Top 3 List For Supreme Court Position

Some broadcast TV networks are quietly clearing the deck in anticipation of President Donald Trump's announcement of his nominee to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.

The president is set to announce his Supreme Court nominee on Monday night.

ABC meanwhile will hit pause on The Bachelorette's jaunt to the Bahamas as needed to accommodate breaking news coverage, and then resume its regularly scheduled programming, airing both Bachelorette and The Proposal in full.

The President said last week that of the winnowed group of four potential nominees he is now considering, "I have it down to three or two", and he will announce his decision Monday evening. Of those, the shortlist is understood to have boiled down to four judges from various USA courts of appeal - Amy Barrett, Thomas Hardiman, Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge.

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.

"The Republicans control the votes in the Senate, but we have the American people on our side", he said. But he also likes Hardiman, whom advisers say Trump came close to picking in 2017 before choosing Neil Gorsuch to fill his first Supreme Court vacancy.

Ginsburg was confirmed by the senate by a whopping 96 votes to 3. Richard Blumenthal, Democratic senator from CT, told ABC's This Week that it posed a fundamental threat to abortion rights. "I was a law clerk to [former Justice Harry Blackmun]". "I think it's a bit of a scare tactic and rank speculation".

The president's only public statement about the choice confronting him came in a tweet from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he was spending the weekend.

Blumenthal also said on "This Week" that he believes Democrats could block the appointment of a new Supreme Court justice before the November midterm elections.

Last year, Trump appointed Thapar, who sits on the 6th US Circuit Court of Appeals and a former United States Attorney, for the District of Kentucky and District Judge.

"If all the Republicans stick together", Chris Coons, a Democratic senator on the Senate Judiciary Committee told CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday, "they will be able to confirm whomever President Trump nominates".
