President Trump Holds Briefing At White House


President Trump plans to announce his nominee to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court on Saturday. 

Trump tweeted Tuesday morning, after saying Monday that he expected to announce his nominee on Friday or Saturday, “I will be announcing my Supreme Court Nominee on Saturday, at the White House! Exact time TBA.”

The President has said that he is weighing five candidates for the Supreme Court vacancy, though Judges Amy Coney Barrett and Barbara Lagoa, both of whom Trump nominated to the federal appellate bench, are seen as the top contenders. Allison Jones Rushing, another federal appeals court judge, is also among those being considered by Trump.
