“I’m very close to making a final decision. And I believe this person will do a great job,” Trump told reports as he left for Washington from a weekend at his New Jersey golf club.
When asked how many people were being considered, the president said: “Let’s say it’s the four people … they’re excellent, every one. You can’t go wrong.” Trump added that he would make his final decision “tonight or tomorrow sometime by 12 o’clock and we’re all gonna be meeting at nine o’clock.”
Later Sunday, Trump tweeted that he was “[l]ooking forward to announcing my final decision on the United States Supreme Court Justice at 9:00pmE tomorrow night at the @WhiteHouse. An exceptional person will be chosen!”
The Trump administration has been preparing information materials on four potential nominees: appeals court judges Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett, and Thomas Hardiman.
Sources who talked to Trump Sunday morning tell Fox News that the president’s top two choices are Kavanaugh and Hardiman, though a GOP source said late Sunday that Barrett still has a good chance of being the pick.
