President Donald Trump names Judge Neil Gorsuch as pick for Supreme Court


President Donald Trump announced Judge Neil Gorsuch for his pick Tuesday to replace Justice Antonin Scalia in the Supreme Court.

Scalia died in February 2016, and the Supreme Court has been short a member since then. Former President Barack Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland as the new justice to the Supreme Court last year, but the Senate did not confirm him.

Gorsuch is a judge on the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. At 49 years old, Gorsuch is the youngest Supreme Court nominee in 25 years. To be confirmed, both the Republicans and Democrats of the Senate will have to work together.
