Trump to announce Supreme Court pick on July 9

Trump to announce Supreme Court pick on July 9

"I've got it down to about five" candidates, including two women, Trump told reporters on Air Force One as he traveled to his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. He indicated that he may interview one or two candidates there this weekend.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has committed to confirming a nominee in the fall, which the Republican-controlled Senate should be able to do if McConnell can hold his razor-thin majority together.

Ninety percent of Democrats said the vacancy would make them more likely to vote for a Democratic Senate candidate in the November 6 election, compared with 81 percent of Republicans who said the issue would make them more likely to vote for a Senate candidate from their party. Thus far, the focus from both sides has been on whether Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion, could be reversed.

Supreme Court vacancies have become a key voting issue in the USA presidential election. "He said he'd like the job", Trump said.

Kennedy, who was nominated to the bench by President Ronald Reagan, earned praise from both parties for the weight he put on the rights to privacy, dignity and freedom of speech.

It's been less than a week since Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court, but already anti-women activists are plotting how best to take advantage of a weakened judicial branch in order to undermine access to safe abortions.

In a now-viral video of the incident, the girl's mother is heard saying, "This woman don't want a little girl to sell some water". The woman paces back and forth on a sidewalk outside a San Francisco apartment building in an online video posted Saturday.

Steven Law, president of the Senate Leadership Fund, a campaign group aligned with McConnell, said the group is running digital ads in 10 states that Trump won in 2016 where Democratic senators are now up for re-election. Trump asked Manchin, the senator recalled.

White House aides said other names are in the mix as well. "As I said, I'm looking specifically at two women".

Many liberals fear that with Kennedy gone, a Trump replacement will ensure that eventually Roe v. Wade will be overturned.

"We'd be very happy if he'd pick any name on that list", said Severino.

Either could reach the Supreme Court in the next 18 to 24 months. "And that will happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court".

The network announced Friday that Bartiromo and Trump would also "discuss the current state of the United States economy, global trade sanctions, immigration, and more". McConnell told Fox News that Republicans believe some combination of Democratic support is possible. I think there will be some Democrats who find the nominee attractive.
