Women Among Candidates Trump Considering For SCOTUS Seat

President Trump and Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy in 2017.

It's quite possible that 81-year-old Justice Anthony Kennedy would have decided it's time to retire regardless of anything Trump said or did, but the New York Times reports that for months the White House has been quietly working to assuage any fears he might have about Trump picking his replacement.

Trump was asked Friday if he plans to ask potential nominees their views on abortion rights and Roe v. Wade.

The nine-point difference could suggest an enthusiasm gap between the parties, as liberal groups sound the alarm that a newly configured court could outlaw abortion rights if a conservative nominee replaces Kennedy's swing vote.

According to CBS News, President Trump has stated that he might meet with several of the potential nominees this weekend at his golf course in Bedminster, NJ. "So we want Roe to be overturned. and we expect that".

Mr. Trump is selecting from his list of 25 conservative judges, although the list includes Sen. Trump held the event for Òcelebrating the six month anniversary of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

"If we were to get another conservative justice to the bench at the Supreme Court, I think our chances are much, much higher".

"He has been a crucial vote in landmark reproductive rights cases", Northup said.

Democrats had argued that any nomination should be delayed until after the midterm elections in November. That means Democrats, who only control 49 seats in the chamber, may not be needed to advance the nomination.

"On the left, that's what they're concerned about", Perino said.

According to the Journal the list has already been whittled down to a half-dozen names, and people involved in the White House process expect an announcement before Trump departs for the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit that begins in Brussels on July 11.

While polling on abortion is hard and yields mixed results depending on how the questions are asked, multiple polls suggest a majority of Americans believe abortion should be legal in at least some cases, particularly in early pregnancy.

Hawkins said her group has more than 1,200 chapters around the country, and organizers will encourage members to lobby their senators during the confirmation process. If Flake joined the Democrats, and the Democrats were unanimously opposed to Trump's nominee, the vote would be 10 to 11, assuming all other Republicans voted in favor of Trump's choice. The court found the law violates the state constitution, and could make abortions unobtainable. Collins, who favors a woman's right to choose on abortion, joined like-minded Republican Lisa Murkowski at the White House meeting.

Asked when the probe would be concluded, he said: "Very soon".

Adam Jentleson, a former Harry Reid aide, tweeted that the most important question is whether Democrats "have the will to fight against overturning Roe v. Wade in an election year where women are driving Dems' strength".
