US President Donald Trump to Announce New Supreme Court Judge on July 9
June 30 , 2018
The US President Donald Trump has told media aboard the Air Force One that the process of searching new Supreme Court judge is on and he has zeroed down the search to "about five" candidates which includes two women. Justice Anthony Kennedy’s announcement of his retirement has given Trump the opportunity to consolidate conservative majority at Supreme court. However, the US President is putting a cautious step in choosing the new Supreme Court judge as the selection has to be confirmed by the Senate, where Republican Party has a slender majority. While speaking to the reporters during his flight from Washington to New Jersey, President Trump said that during the selection process he’ll not ask the Supreme Court candidates about their views on legalized abortion in the US.
