Trump to name Supreme Court pick at end of week

US President Donald Trump said on Monday he will announce his nominee for the empty Supreme Court seat at the end of this week.
“I will announce it either Friday or Saturday and then the work begins, but hopefully it won’t be too much work,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News.
The death last week of Ruth Bader Ginsburg stripped the court, which was already tilted to the right, of one of its steadiest liberal votes.
With a chance to name his third new justice since entering the White House, Trump is now on the cusp of installing a firmly conservative majority for many years to come.
The Republican leader confirmed that two women -- Judge Amy Coney Barrett and Judge Barbara Lagoa -- feature prominently on his short list. (AFP)
