Sunday shows preview: Washington braces for Trump's Supreme Court pick

Talk of President TrumpDonald John TrumpMcCabe says he was fired because he 'opened a case against' Trump McCabe: Trump said 'I don't care, I believe Putin' when confronted with US intel on North Korea McCabe: Trump talked to me about his election victory during 'bizarre' job interview MORE's highly anticipated nomination to the Supreme Court will take the main stage on the Sunday show circuit this week ahead of Trump's expected announcement of Justice Anthony Kennedy's potential replacement.

The president attempted to drum up enthusiasm for his Monday evening announcement in a tweet on Saturday morning, hyping his "big decision" about the nomination.

Leonard Leo, Trump's outside adviser on the judicial nomination process will make an appearance on ABC's "This Week" after previously telling reporters that Trump's pick likely would not focus on overturning Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that is viewed as a top target by many conservative judicial activists.

"I don’t think at the end of the day it’s about Roe v. Wade, it’s about having judges on the court who are going to interpret the Constitution the way it’s written,” Leo told Fox News. “And part of interpreting the Constitution is taking into account major precedents, and that’s going to happen.”


Leading the Democrats' charge against conservative efforts to push Trump toward a nominee who would favor overturning Roe v. Wade, is NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue, who will appear on “Fox News Sunday."

Several senators involved with the nomination process on the Senate Judiciary Committee will also make appearances Sunday.
