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

McGahn will lead the overall selection and confirmation process, the White House said Monday, repeating the role he played in the successful confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch past year.

Shah will take leave from the position of Trump's Deputy Principal Press Secretary to concentrate on getting the President's nominee through the Senate approval process, White House Spokesperson Sarah Sanders said.

But "this is merely the first step in our full-fledged advocacy campaign for the nomination and confirmation of a constitutional conservative to the U.S. Supreme Court", said One Nation President Steven Law. He consulted with advisers during a weekend at his Bedminster golf club, and the White House has mobilized a team to manage the nomination and confirmation process.

"I had a very, very interesting morning", Trump said on Monday, according to the Post, which reported that he described the candidates as "outstanding people", but did not name them.

"There is keen interest in those two, but there are at least a couple of others who are still very seriously in the mix", said the person.

After Kennedy announced his retirement last week, Nelson immediately faced pressure from both ends of the political spectrum.

So whether or not Trump appoints another pro-life justice to the Court, Roe v. Wade might remain in place. One good example is retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, who was appointed by President Ronald Reagan and voted in favor of abortion rights. Kennedy has been a swing vote on several issues on the nine-member court. "It's clearly precedent, and I always look for judges who respect precedent".

Trump he says he plans to meet with two to three more as he works toward a decision "over the next few days".

Collins voted to confirm Neil Gorsuch to court a year ago. The Senate confirmed Gorsuch after a fierce battle.

Democrats have their sights set on Sen.

Every senator's vote will count in confirming the eventual nominee because with Sen. He has targeted them for defeat in November's midterm elections.

Second, there is a good chance that the fate of Roe does not turn on this Supreme Court pick even if that nominee would vote to overturn the 1973 precedent.

President Trump is on the verge of announcing a nominee to the Supreme Court who undoubtedly will be given the seal of approval by right-leaning groups dedicated to reversing Roe v. Wade. In January, Collins and Murkowski voted against a bill that would have banned late-term abortions in most circumstances. Vice President Mike Pence can break a tie.

President Trump has a golden opportunity to surpass Reagan on the all-important issue of the Supreme Court. "And that's what I want to see in this nominee", she added.

The average age of the candidates on Trump's list of 25 justices is 52 years. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg-a Democratic appointee and the Supreme Court's most fervent liberal-is 84. "You shouldn't do that.' But I'm putting conservative people on", Trump also said. Despite the Supreme Court's prominence, thousands of consequential court decisions are made in the lower courts.
