Who Will Trump Nominate for the Supreme Court? Here are a Few Options

Judge Raymond Kethledge of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit is the best choice for a Supreme Court spot, Hugh Hewitt writes in a column for The Washington Post. Here are the picks that are being considered for Trump’s SCOTUS Pick.

Hewitt, conservative author and radio host, says Kethledge has “stood strongly with free exercise rights.”

The nomination would mean President Donald Trump is keeping one of his most touted campaign promises.

“Kethledge has been faithful for more than a decade to the originalist approach,” Hewitt writes. “White House staffers will have read every word of Kethledge’s many writings, and they will conclude: Gorsuch 2.0.”

“Married 25 years and a man of faith, he’s also an avid hunter and fisherman, a not insignificant detail in these matters,” Hewitt writes.

According to reports, Trump is expected to announce his nomination on July 9.

“If Trump wants to pay back the people who elected him in 2016, putting a Midwesterner on the highest bench is one way to do it,” HotAir.com says.

According to Bloomberg: “Kethledge has impressed those within the White House, the people close to the process said. He was considered for the last Supreme Court vacancy but didn’t meet with Trump then. On Monday, Trump expressed strongly favorable opinions about him, triggering talk that he’s not a candidate to be ignored.”

The other candidates for the Supreme Court position include federal appeals court judges Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh and Amul Thapar.

“Don’t make the easy ones hard, Mr. President,” Hewitt says. “Pick a staunch originalist from the heartland that elected you. Nominate Raymond Kethledge.”
