WATCH LIVE: Trump Announces His Nominee to the Supreme Court

Monday night, President Donald Trump will name his nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. The announcement is scheduled for 9:00 p.m. ET.

Trump is believed to have narrowed his decision to four people on his short list: Brett Kavanaugh, Thomas Hardiman, Raymond Kethledge, and Amy Coney Barrett. Conservative figures have expressed a variety of opinions about which potential Justice would have the best impact on the next generation for the Court. But for now, the White House is being tight-lipped about the decision, and indications suggest that Trump might still be grappling with his final choice as well at this late hour.

There is bound to be a lot of media fanfare around the announcement since Trump’s choice will mark a significant and lasting shift in how the Supreme Court rules on cases. The president’s critics are bound to express fierce opposition to his choice, not only due to worries about a possible reversal of Roe v. Wade, but also due to concerns that the Court might roll back other landmark rulings without Kennedy’s swing vote.
