Speaking to reporters during an Oval Office meeting with Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, Trump said he would draw from a list of 25 potential court candidates that his campaign had assembled during his presidential run.

There are two other names that have been floated as front-runners in addition to Kavanaugh, Barrett and Thapar: 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Thomas Hardiman, who was the runner-up to Neil Gorsuch on the president's first Supreme Court pick; and 6th Circuit Court of Appeals' Judges Raymond Kethledge.
