President Trump has promised to nominate a woman justice to the Supreme Court.
So naturally many people, especially his enemies, are speculating on who it will be.
Reports say he has met with his shortlist, as has Mike Pence. He’s likely to make his announcement on Saturday.
This is who people say he might pick:
Four names have been widely floated: 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett; 11th Circuit Judge Barbara Lagoa; 4th Circuit Judge Allison Jones Rushing, and 6th Circuit Judge Joan Larsen.
All four of the women were nominated to their current posts on the federal appeals courts by Trump and are on his larger, pre-vetted list of potential Supreme Court nominees.
And Trump has responded to the news that vice-presidential candidate, Kamala Harris will try to oppose this process:
Great news. It will show how incompetent she is! https://t.co/O8pCMOU2Ma

Great news. It will show how incompetent she is!
Democrats are spinning their wheels to stop Trump from appointing a third Supreme Court justice.
Some already believe he will go with Amy Coney Barrett, a strong conservative with a respected record.
In response, Democrats will be sending Kamala Harris after her to stop Trump.
Out of all the seasoned, experienced, knowledgeable Democrats in the Senate, why are they going with Harris?
Sure, she’s Joe Biden’s “running mate,” and she’s on the Senate Judiciary Committee. But do you remember the Kavanaugh hearings?
She was one of the Democrats who fanned the flames of hysteria over baseless accusations against Brett Kavanaugh.
Many believe what she and the rest of them did was a stain on their party and the country.
On top of that, Kamala harris went after another one of Trump’s judicial nominees for their Catholic faith. It may have been a trial run for Barrett.
You’d think Democrats would want Harris as far from this process as possible.
Get anyone else to lead the “fight” against what is already a done deal.
Harris already has a bad reputation for questioning a nominee’s religious background.
What is she going to try against Barrett, a respected Catholic and judge?
This turn of events has cast a new light on the election. Does America want to hold to its traditions and values (with Trump) or lurch left and embrace radical, irreligious socialism (with Biden)?
Chances are, conservatives and moderates will break on the side of traditional America.
- Many believe Trump will nominate Amy Coney Barrett to replace RGB.
- Democrats will prop up Kamala Harris to oppose the nomination process.
- Harris has a bad track record for attacking judge nominees.
