The President met with the conservative judge Amy Coney Barrett at the White House on Monday
President Donald Trump met with Judge Amy Coney Barrett at the White House on Monday as the conservative jurist emerged as a favourite to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.
The moves signal the start of a monumental Senate confirmation fight over objections from Democrats that the appointment would come too close to the November election.
Mr Trump said he expected to announce his pick by the end of the week, before the court’s liberal icon Ms Ginsburg is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
