Senator predicts 'rough, tough … ear-pulling fight' over Trump court pick

While President Donald Trump told reporters on Sunday that he is still mulling over four judges who could become his Supreme Court justice pick, The New York Times reported that Trump may favor a candidate with ties to his family.

Leo said Hardiman of Pennsylvania and Kethledge of MI are "a little bit less known by conservatives".

After a weekend deliberating with aides and calling allies for advice, he tweeted, "I have long heard that the most important decision a U.S. President can make is the selection of a Supreme Court Justice - Will be announced tonight at 9:00 P.M".

"There's nobody that President Trump could nominate from a conservative vent that will get many Democratic votes".

Valentino explained that she and Appeals Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh would be strong conservative choices. But the situation appeared to remain fluid.

President Trump said on Thursday he may ultimately impose tariffs on more than a half-trillion dollars worth of Chinese goods. USA markets also garnered support from a government employment report showing better-than-expected growth in jobs.

One Democrat from a red state, Alabama's Doug Jones, told CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday that he did not rule out voting for Trump's nominee. Gorsuch restored the court's conservative majority.

The stakes are sky high for filling the opening created by Justice Anthony Kennedy's imminent retirement.

"I've spent the last three days interviewing and thinking about Supreme Court justices". "I was not elected to genuflect to the hard right, who are funded by corporate America". He is hoping to replicate his successful announcement of Justice Neil Gorsuch a year ago. Trump is expected to pressure recalcitrant Senate Democrats into supporting his nominee by holding rallies in their states.

Hardiman has a tale Republicans like McConnell love: a former taxi driver from the key swing state of Pennsylvania who comes with the recommendation of fellow 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Maryanne Trump Barry - the president's sister.

Given GOP control of the Senate and the chamber's Republican leader Mitch McConnell's abolition of the filibuster for Supreme Court nominations during the Gorsuch confirmation saga, any of the four is expected to have a strong chance of confirmation.

Mona's lawyer Imad Kamal said that ten years ago she underwent brain surgery, then it's hard for her to cope with anger. However, before her detention, Mazbouh apologized for some of her offensive comments in a follow-up video.

As of Sunday, Trump said he had yet to make a decision on who to nominate.

Education: Barrett received her undergraduate degree from Rhodes College in Memphis and studied law at the University of Notre Dame where she is a longtime law professor.

But that element of his record is among the reasons that some Republicans in Congress are concerned about a confirmation hearing in the Senate. But his supporters cite his experience and wide range of legal opinions.

Barrett - a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal appeals judge last fall - excited social conservatives with her testimony when questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings previous year.

We have a lot of respect for what he's done, but we're not going to think about very much. "He always tries to help us win games". Romelu Lukaku has been directly involved in 20 goals in his last 13 games for Belgium in all competitions (17 goals, 3 assists).
