President Donald Trump has called a press conference for Tuesday night to announce his selection to fill the seat on the Supreme Court to fill the seat long left open by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.


According to CNN, the president invited what most expect to be his top two contenders for the post, federal Judges Neil Gorsuch and Thomas Hardiman, to Washington for the announcement.

The seat has remained open since the GOP blocked ex-President Obama’s choice to fill to sit on the court, Justice Merrick Garland of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
