by Sharon Rondeau
The announcement will be made on the White House’s official Facebook page, on which Trump appears to post personally on a regular basis.
The exact message, preceded by the White House logo above, reads:
Tonight at 8pm EST, we will be going LIVE on Facebook for President Trump to introduce his nominee for Supreme Court Justice.
You won’t want to miss it!
and is followed by a red “Tune In” button leading to the Facebook page.
