Trump to name Supreme Court nominee, battle to ensue


Washington :President Donald Trump is to announce his US Supreme Court pick on Monday, an intensely anticipated decision that opposition Democrats say will likely push the bench rightward with explosive implications for the country. Trump plans to unveil his pick to succeed retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy in a 9:00 pm (0100 GMT) televised appearance at the White House. “We are close to making a decision,” Trump told reporters late Sunday. The choice was down to four people, he said, adding that “you can’t go wrong” with any of them. “I’ll be deciding tonight or tomorrow sometime by 12 o’clock,” he said. In a later tweet he said he was looking forward to the Monday night announcement of his “exceptional” pick.
