Justice Kennedy, 81, recently announced his retirement from the US Supreme Court. Foreseeing inevitable news break-ins to offer coverage and analysis, broadcasters are rejiggering their primetime lineups so as to keep too much fresh summer fare from being preempted. Of those, the shortlist is understood to have boiled down to four judges from various USA courts of appeal - Amy Barrett, Thomas Hardiman, Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge. The three others interviewed were justices Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Raymond Kethledge.

Mr. Thapar was on the shortlist of candidates after Judge Antonin Scalia died in 2016. The US President, according to the White House, has interviewed seven candidates from his master list of 25 judges.

But Trump himself has said he wants to put people on the court who support overturning the landmark 1973 decision that granted women the constitutional right to have an abortion. Trump finally nominated judge Neil Gorsuch.

Before boarding Air Force One en route to Washington, Trump said he was considering four people and that of those under consideration, "you can't go wrong". "We've been talking about this for 36 years, going all the way back to the nomination of Sandra O'Connor", he said.

This will be 6.30 am - Tuesday - local India time on July 10.

"Let's say it's the four people", Trump said. "The whole list is extraordinary", he said.

"I think we can confirm any of the four names being mentioned", Blunt said on NBC's "Meet the Press". "So I think it's a bit of a scare tactic and rank speculation more than anything else". We'll announce it on Monday.

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.
