Trump has been hyping up his huge announcement for days. Then, his final tease was on Jan. 30, when he tweeted that the reveal would go down the next day. If you’ll be on the West Coast at the time of his Supreme Court nominee announcement, it will start at 5 PM, and if you’re in the UK, it will happen at 1 AM on Wed., Feb. 1.
The highly anticipated pick reportedly came down to two contenders — One being, Neil Gorsuch, 49, who sits on the federal appears court in Denver. He was nominated by President George W. Bush, 70, in 2006. If he’s nominated, Gorsuch would be the youngest Supreme Court nominee. The second contender, is Pennsylvania Federal Appeals Court Judge Thomas Hardiman, 51. He sits on the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals, which is based in Philadelphia, PA. However, he works out of Pittsburgh, PA.
Although the two men have become top contenders for the coveted position, President Trump can surprise everyone by making a completely different decision. Be sure to tune in to his big reveal [above] to find out who Trump will nominate to fill the vacant seat on the Supreme Court!
