The U.S. Supreme Court has been one justice short for almost a year now after the death of Antonin Scalia last February. That’s why President Trump this Thursday – less than two weeks into his presidency – will announce who he’s nominating to fill Scalia’s vacant seat.
Candidate Trump promised to pick from a list of 21 names, all constitutionalists, all likely to lean pro-life.

“They’re Going to Shake Their Fist”
