Donald Trump has chosen federal appeals court judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for US Supreme Court Justice.

The 53-year-old Cavanaugh is now a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, and previously served under President George W. Bush's administration as staff secretary to the office of the president.

Protesters decrying President Trump's Supreme Court nomination blocked traffic outside of Trump Tower Monday night, leading to the arrest of seven people, law enforcement sources said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly told Trump that the judges presenting the fewest obstacles to confirmation are Raymond Kethledge of the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and Thomas Hardiman of the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. He's taught "hundreds" of students, primarily at Harvard Law School, that the separation of powers enshrined in the Constitution "protects individual liberty", he said, and added that he's "grateful" to have been hired by Justice Elena Kagan.

Companies that supported the regulation, including Honeywell International Inc (HON.N), last month filed court papers asking the Supreme Court to reinstate it.

"For judges, there is a natural and understandable inclination to decide these weighty and historic constitutional questions", Kavanaugh wrote.

The conservative Judicial Crisis Network made clear Monday they consider this fight even more substantial than the one to confirm Justice Neil Gorsuch.

Following Mr Trump's nomination, Judge Kavanaugh's candidacy moves to the Senate Judiciary Committee, which then holds hearings.

But conservatives perceive Kavanaugh's time as a Republican operative favorably, and his connections from years in the executive branch could serve to soothe Republicans ahead of what could very well be a confirmation fight. His father, also a lawyer, was mentioned merely for inspiring the nominee's love of sports, which Kavanaugh says he has passed on to his young daughters, whose basketball teams he coaches.

But his work on President Bill Clinton's impeachment, his close ties to President George W. Bush and his ruling on President Barack Obama's health care law, which he opposed on procedural rather than broader legal grounds, have raised concerns among some conservatives. "A judge must interpret statutes as written and a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent". But Indiana's Joe Donnelly, North Dakota's Heidi Heitkamp and West Virginia's Joe Manchin all say they won't attend.

"Justice Kennedy's resignation letter barely arrived in the President's hands before several Democratic colleagues began declaring their blanket opposition to anyone at all - anyone - that the President might name", McConnell said Monday.

A nominee needs a simple majority of 51 votes to be confirmed.

Schatz in his statement also took issue with another part of the president's decision making process: that he was using a list pre-approved by the Federalist Society, a staunchly conservative think tank. The two have supported access to abortion services.

Kavanaugh also credited his mother as having "overcame barriers", becoming a Montgomery County Circuit Court judge in 1993. If approved by the Senate, he would become the fifth conservative justice on the nation's highest court.
