President Trump summoned his top two candidates for the Supreme Court to Washington on Tuesday as he worked to build suspense around a prime-time announcement of his choice to fill a crucial vacancy, a selection certain to touch off a bruising ideological clash that could shape his presidency and have sweeping consequences for American law.one can only hope that it will be truly crass and weird in a Trump beauty contest/reality TV kind of way: make both candidates wait on TV for the announcement, and one have to congratulate the other.
