President Trump Monday told Fox and Friends that he will announce his pick for the Supreme Court lat this week.
“I think it’ll be on Friday or Saturday. And we want to pay respect. We, it looks like, it looks like we will have, probably, services on Thursday or Friday, as I understand it. I think in all due respect, we should wait until the services are over for Justice Ginsburg. And so we’re looking probably on Friday or maybe Saturday,” he said.
Of course, this also gives the White House time to make the best political calculation about whom to pick and when to run the process.
