Graham said. "So red-state Democrats are going to have a very hard decision, and I hope every Republican will rally around these picks, because they're all outstanding".

Sen. Lindsey Graham says Republicans are holding "four lottery tickets" with President Trump's final short list of judges who could be nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Mr Trump is due to make his announcement on Monday.

Trump is said to have narrowed his potential SCOTUS nominees down to federal judges Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge and Amy Coney Barret.

The source told Reuters that Amy Coney Barrett of IN, a Trump-appointed judge on the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, was still IN contention but that the Republican president had been asking more questions about the other two, who have more extensive judicial records.

Trump during the campaign pledged to pick justices who would reject 45 years of precedent and overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 controversial decision legalizing abortion.

Talking to reporters travelling with him to Montana overseas Air Force One, Trump said he had interviewed some "extraordinarily talented and brilliant" people during the process.

Asked about the details of the selection process, Mr Trump said he has it down to four people. "Three red-state Senate Democrats up for re-election this year voted to confirm Justice Gorsuch, and Mr. McConnell is hopeful they will support the next nominee", the Times's Maggie Haberman and Jonathan Martin wrote Saturday. I do think the president has to think about who is the easiest to get confirmed here.

"I think in regards to Kethledge and Tom Hardiman they are a little less known by conservatives and their records are a little bit lighter so it might take some time", Leo told ABC's "This Week" on Sunday. Honestly, I could pick any of the 25 and they would be terrific. "But I'm getting very close to making a final decision". "I'll give you the answer", Trump said. "The whole list is extraordinary", he said.

President Donald Trump departed from his Bedminster golf club Sunday after a three-day respite from Washington as he prepared to nominate a second U.S.
