A quick look at the "final four" Supreme Court candidates

A quick look at the

Tanden was speaking at a conference hosted by UnidosUS, the largest Hispanic advocacy group in the country, and hours before President Trump was slated to announce his pick at 9 p.m.to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.

Any of the candidates on Trump's short list would probably move the court to the right.

While Trump didn't name the four, top contenders for the role have included federal appeals judges Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on "Fox News Sunday".

"All Republicans should embrace these picks", Graham said, adding, however: "Here's the truth".

With a slim one-vote majority in the Senate, any GOP defections could prove problematic in winning confirmation for Trump's eventual choice - that is, if Democrats hold together in opposition. John McCain's expected no-vote as he battles brain cancer. "So red-state Democrats are going to have a very hard decision". That means President Trump should select anyone but Kethledge or Hardiman. It has already reserved another four weeks of airtime nationally and in the four states, the group said. I do think the president has to think about who is the easiest to get confirmed here.

China responded promptly and slapped duties on the same amount of value unto United States products. On Friday, the United States tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods were implemented.

Trump has enjoyed teasing details of his process in recent days, saying Thursday that he was down to four people and "of the four people, I have it down to three or two".

Barrett, on the other hand, has become a favorite of religious conservatives because of her thorny confirmation hearing to the federal bench past year.

The New York Times is reporting that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has weighed in and is trying to urge Trump to pick either Kethledge or Hardiman for ease of confirmation. He announced the Senate wouldn't consider Obama's nominee because it was a presidential election year. Gorsuch, who worked at the Justice Department in 2005 and 2006, had a smaller set of executive branch documents for review. But there's one qualification that could prove a problem for the judge: his ties to the Bush family have reportedly raised Trump's suspicions. Previously, Collins voted for Gorsuch because of his belief in the significance of precedent.

Trump is seeking to shift the balance of the court further to the right. Many, including Leo, believe that it was a major contributing factor to his victory in 2016.

Kavanaugh, of Maryland, sits on the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Hazard grew up supporting France
Mina, who scored three goals for Colombia at the World Cup , has been linked with Merseyside rivals Liverpool and Everton. The Red Devils have also shown that, unlike their last two major worldwide tournaments, the big matches do not faze them.

Kavanaugh, 53, has served as a US Court of Appeals judge for the DC Circuit for 12 years, providing opinions on key tech issues like net neutrality and government surveillance.

More than the other potential nominees, Hardiman has a strong record in favor of gun rights.

Barrett has a thin resume as a judge but has amassed a formidable and respected body of scholarly work. Kavanaugh also repped Cuban tot Elian Gonzales, pro bono, when conservatives battled to keep him from returning to Cuba; Kavanaugh also was one of the George W. Bush lawyers in the Florida recount. He helped finance his law degree at the Georgetown University Law Center by driving a taxi.

Democrats are certain to press Trump's latest nominee on the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide, a decision some conservatives - particularly conservative Christians - have long wanted to overturn.
