Who will Donald Trump pick to serve on the U.S

The Supreme Court in October 2015

Trump is expected to make his announcement Monday. Nevertheless, if chosen, Democrats will certainly bring up the issue at his confirmation hearings, a guaranteed embarrassment for the president and his party.

Other contenders that have received serious interest include federal appeals judges Amul Thapar, Thomas Hardiman and Joan Larsen.

"He listens to everybody, big or small, influential or not, and absorbs it all", said Trump friend and Newsmax chief executive Christopher Ruddy.

Kavanaugh is a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Barrett, 46, was confirmed by the Senate to a lifetime appointment on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals this past October. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) also spoke to the president about the merits and drawbacks of each nominee, including Kavanaugh.

Actress Isla Fisher has thrown her support behind the Muslim community in an empowered Instagram post following the US Supreme Court upholding President Trump's travel ban last week. Although a conservative, Kennedy sided with the liberal side of the bench on several crucial cases, including rulings on same-sex marriage and abortion.

The Supreme Court in Washington.

His concerns mirror comments from some conservatives who view Kavanaugh as a more establishment-aligned pick on abortion and issues related to the Fourth Amendment right against unreasonable searches and seizures. "I don't want to say the four". She's only been a federal judge for about a year.

Matuidi: Ronaldo To Juventus Would Be "Just Great"
Juventus have been a dominant force in Italy for some time now. " Real Madrid has made no offer of any kind to PSG or the player". Some reports are suggesting the Spanish giants have already accepted a €100 million (A$158 million) offer from Juve for Ronaldo.

Trump has also called the North American Free Trade Agreement, the "worst trade deal in the history of the world". President Donald Trump says he's in no rush to sign a deal until after the U.S. midterm elections this fall.

Kaley Cuoco wore a jumpsuit at her wedding to Karl Cook
The 32-year-old posted a photo on Instagram of her kissing equestrian Karl Cook in a stable on Saturday. Karl proposed to Kaley on her 32nd birthday during a candlelit dinner at home.

Kennedy was 80 when he announced his retirement.

President Donald Trump isn't the only administration official meeting with potential nominees for the Supreme Court. And some reports say the president has narrowed the field to two or three and Lee is not among them. Trump has been interviewing candidates drawn from a 25-person list created by the Federalist Society, an organization of conservative and libertarian-leaning lawyers. The president described the potential picks as "outstanding". "They are generally conservative".

Kethledge, 51, is another former Kennedy clerk. His grandfather invented an acoustically guided torpedo that sunk dozens of Nazi U-boats during World War II.

Kethledge's sudden ascent in the process is widely seen in the West Wing as a effect of what conservative talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh has called the "whisper campaign" against Kavanaugh, with the president newly intrigued by the University of Michigan Law School graduate. He was appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in 2008. "It's a good problem to have for the president because the reported finalists are committed to the Constitution". He likes to work in a converted barn office overlooking Lake Huron, with a wood stove and no Internet, when he writes opinions.

He also co-authored a book on leadership and solitude, Lead Yourself First. He is a Yale Law School graduate.

Some conservatives, though, question his bona fides, and he's controversial with Democrats because of his role investigating former President Bill Clinton as part of the Starr investigation. He was confirmed to the D.C. Circuit under President George W. Bush in 2006. The nomination was stalled for three years. Barrett was born Amy Vivian Coney in New Orleans in 1972. She graduated from Rhodes College and attended Notre Dame Law School.

She was followed by Justice William Atuguba, who is one of the longest-serving judges of the Supreme Court.
