Trump nominates Neil Gorsuch to fill Supreme Court vacancy

Neil Gorsuch is President Donald Trump’s pick for Supreme Court justice, the president announced in a Facebook Live video Tuesday evening.
Gorsuch, 49, is a US Circuit Judge of the US Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, which covers six states. Gorsuch would be the youngest addition to the high court since Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who was 43 years old when he was confirmed in 1991.
Trump invited Gorsuch and his wife to stand next to him at the podium during the announcement. Gorsuch then took to the podium himself, saying that he was “honored and humbled.”
