President Donald Trump announced that he has made his Supreme Court nominee choice, promising to announce it live from the White House on Tuesday.

I have made my decision on who I will nominate for The United States Supreme Court,” he wrote on Twitter. “It will be announced live on Tuesday at 8:00 P.M.”

Trump initially set his announcement for Thursday but moved it up after Senate Democrats seized on his executive order blocking immigration from several high-risk countries in the Middle East.

According to the Associated Press, three federal appeals court judges are on Trump’s short list — Neil Gorsuch, Thomas Hardiman, and William Pryor.
