Trump spoke with three Supreme Court candidates

Trump: I 'probably won't' ask Supreme Court nominees about Roe v. Wade

The President said he would interview "two or three more" candidates before announcing his pick for the nine-member Supreme Court of the U.S. (SCOTUS) on July 9. "Someone who tries to keep an open mind and perspective nominees like Brett Cavanaugh, Amy Barrett, Raymond Kethledge and Thomas Hardiman are people who have not specifically said they oppose Roe vs. Wade and their writings and their work show that they are very fair". "The Department of Justice is fully engaged to support the nomination and confirmation efforts".

Before his selection a year ago of Neil Gorsuch to replace deceased justice Antonin Scalia, Trump interviewed multiple candidates including Thomas M Hardiman, who serves on the third circuit court of appeals alongside Trump's sister, Maryanne Trump Barry. Cory Booker saying there should be no nominee until after Robert Mueller ends his Russian Federation probe.

In the wake of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement - and in light of Trump's vow to replace him with someone who would overturn Roe v. Wade - all eyes are on Susan Collins, a Republican senator with pro-choice leanings who could help reject an anti-abortion nominee.

Even though Republicans changed Senate rules previous year to allow confirmation by simple majority, if Democrats hold together, they can not afford defections.

More than 6 in 10 US voters, 63 percent, said in the Quinnipiac University Poll that they agreed with the decision, more than twice as much as the 31 percent who disagreed.

"What I want to see is a nominee who, regardless of his or her personal views on the very hard and contentious life issue, is going to respect precedent regardless", added Collins. "Is it fair to say that the president won't pick someone who has a record of opposition to Roe v. Wade?".

Casey told WKBN that he hopes Trump chooses a "mainstream nominee".

The 32: Messi and Ronaldo will rise says Chelsea legend Flo
As the Argentinian anthem was played before the game against Croatia , the camera fixated its gaze on Lionel Messi . Uruguay and Portugal can be seen Saturday at 1pm et/10am pt. across the TSN Network and on CTV.

Democrats have urged Collins and Sen.

Without Kennedy, the high court will have four justices picked by Democratic presidents and four picked by Republicans, giving Trump the chance to shift the ideological balance toward conservatives for years to come. But his step away from the day-to-day operations of the White House press shop could also signal the beginning of his exit from the White House, which Shah has been mulling in recent weeks.

One of the candidates Trump spoke to is Utah Sen. John McCain of Arizona. "I don't think at the end of the day it's about Roe v. Wade", Leo said on Fox News Sunday. Nevertheless, Murkowski did vote for Justice Gorsuch past year.

And if the votes result in a tie, Vice President Pence will hold the tie-breaking vote-and his anti-abortion stance is well-known.

For now, the liberal groups have launched a campaign against all candidates on Mr.Trump's list. Court watchers have been discussing the prospect of a conservative woman on the bench.

The president teased Lee over his public statements about the nomination. Trump also nominated 94 district court judges, with the Senate confirming 20 to date, and 15 judges in other key courts, of which the Senate has confirmed five. The appointments flipped the makeup of the nation's lower courts.
