He responded, "That's not a question I'll be asking". Kennedy wrote an 2008 opinion declaring unconstitutional the use of the death penalty for child rapists not also convicted of murder, and also wrote a 2005 opinion outlawing the use of the death penalty on juveniles. "Leader McConnell set that standard in 2016 when he denied Judge Garland a hearing for almost a year, and the Senate should follow the McConnell Standard", Sen Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said in a statement.

West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin says it would be tough to support someone who would revamp the landmark decision. I think they may feel emboldened by today's decision. "At a minimum, we have to make sure that we vet people coming into the country", the Republican president said, referring in a statement to "this era of worldwide terrorism and extremist movements bent on harming innocent civilians".

He was among several senators who met Thursday with Trump at the White House.

Now, with the retirement of Supreme Court justice Anthony Kennedy on Wednesday, the true magnitude of Trump's victory has come into clearer focus than ever before.

Kennedy's career on the Supreme Court earned him the nickname "the most powerful man in America", because he was often the deciding vote between the conservative and liberal wings of the nine-member court.

Trump says he discussed with Kennedy some potential replacements but declined to say which names were mentioned.

"The ruling shows that all the attacks from the media and the Democratic politicians were wrong, and they've always been very wrong", Trump said after the 5-4 ruling upholding the third iteration of his travel ban order as within the president's statutory and constitutional authority.

Democrats need to flip just 24 Republican-held seats to seize control of the chamber.

Trump told reporters the process would "begin immediately". He said the president was pleased with the game plan that put Gorsuch on the bench, which involved a network of White House aides, congressional allies and outside advocates.

The president said he would review an existing list of 25 candidates for the opening. Last time the pool of contenders narrowed from eight to six and then to a final three, Leo said.

Trump himself nominated Thapar, Barrett, and Larsen to their current positions.

McConnell ended up holding the seat open for more than a year, until after Trump won the election and Neil Gorsuch was confirmed to take Scalia's place.

"It is exciting though, right?" said Trump.
