White House press secretary Sean Spicer said each nominee was chosen "for their deep knowledge of the law" and commitment to the Constitution.

Trump will nominate Joan Larsen, who now serves on Michigan's Supreme Court, to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, and David Stras, a justice on the Minnesota Supreme Court bench, to the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis.

Trump will also name several additional nominees to the federal appeals court, along with a handful of federal district court nominees.

But one area where these nominations can have a huge impact is the federal courts.

President Trump announced his selection of 10 federal court nominees Monday, releasing a list that included two conservative judges who he once considered for the Supreme Court.

Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton appointed more than 300 federal judges over the course of their terms.

Along with judicial vacancies, Trump has yet to fill hundreds of political appointee positions across the federal government.

Federal courts have blocked Trump's proposed travel ban and his order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with immigration authorities.

"When it comes to fulfilling his campaign promise to appoint strong, principled judges, Trump is knocking it out of the park", said Carrie Severino, the chief counsel of the Judicial Crisis Network, ahead of the expected announcement.
