How significant is Trump’s Supreme Court pick?

Grassroots groups on both sides of the US political spectrum are mobilizing to influence the outcome of the nomination.

US President Donald Trump is due to announce his latest US Supreme Court pick, kicking off a contentious nomination process.

This will be the second time he has been able to choose a justice in the past 18 months.

And it’s significant because his choice is expected to swing the court towards the right.
