Perhaps looking to shift the attention away from the debate on his recent ban on refugees, President Trump has moved the announcement day for his Supreme Court nominee from Thursday to tomorrow.
And now the left is scrambling to prepare its attacks in the media.
Here’s more from Daily Mail:
President Donald Trump has chosen a replacement for the late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia, and he will announce a name tomorrow night.
‘I have made my decision on who I will nominate for The United States Supreme Court. It will be announced live on Tuesday at 8:00 P.M. (W.H.),’ the president wrote on Twitter.
Trump originally said the announcement would come on Thursday. Word of a possible earlier announcement first came as the White House dealt with fallout from Trump’s partial travel ban on Middle Eastern refugees.
As a candidate, Trump often used surprise announcements to shift attention away from negative media coverage.
The timing of the president’s announcement carries an added benefit for Republicans.
CNN is scheduled to host an hour-long town hall event with Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at 9:00 p.m. Tuesday, an event that will now be drowned out by reactions to Trump’s choice.
