Trump pledges July 9 announcement on Supreme Court nominee

Anti-abortion advocates rally outside of the Supreme Court during the March for Life

In an interview with Fox Business Network's Maria Bartiromo airing Sunday, though, the president said he "probably" wouldn't ask candidates about how they'd vote on the case.

Speaking aboard Air Force One, he said that there are at least five candidates on his short list, including two women. "Wade-reversal" target="_blank">The Associated Press in an interview that despite Trump's public cautioning that he won't ask potential nominees to the Supreme Court about their stance on abortion, evangelicals remain highly confident in Trump's eventual pick to fill the recent vacancy. But Republican Senator John McCain, who has an aggressive form of brain cancer, has been absent from the Senate for months, meaning that if all Senate Democrats vote against Trump's eventual nominee, it would take only one Republican defection to defeat his pick.

Already the confirmation process is becoming a debate about the future of abortion rights in America and whether the nominee would uphold the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision and subsequent challenges that have upheld a woman's right to abortion access.

"I'm very proud of Neil Gorsuch", Trump continued. The swing-vote senators, along with McCain, were the trio who derailed the GOP's 2017 effort to repeal most of President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act. Trump invited all five to the White House for a private meeting the day after Kennedy announced his retirement.

"I think sometimes we talk about Supreme Court too much in abstractions, about dignity and who is qualified and who is not".

The Red Devils were rampant at times and rested both forwards in the second half for tougher tests ahead. Under that scenario Sweden would be the group champion and Mexico the group runner-up.

"We're going to have great judges, conservative, all picked by the Federalist Society", Trump said during an interview on Breitbart News radio.

People familiar with the selection process said the front- runners on Trump's list at this point are all current federal appeals court judges: Brett Kavanaugh, a judge on the District of Columbia U.S. Court of Appeals; Thomas Hardiman, who serves on the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals; Raymond Kethledge of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals; Amul Thapar, whom Trump named to the 6th Circuit; and Amy Coney Barrett, whom Trump named to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Mike Lee, who is the one non-judge on the list. The White House said Trump's team also spoke with more than a dozen additional senators. "You know, they went four years, they went eight years and they never got a choice, and here we are at two already".

"He's an outstanding talent", Trump said of Lee. "I love that issue if they're going to actually do that".

It will be his second Supreme Court pick, one that will give him an opportunity to cement the conservative majority on the nation's high court for years to come. Gorsuch cleared the Senate - only after McConnell pushed through a rules change to end the filibuster on Supreme Court nominees and lower the threshold for confirmation from 60 to a simple majority - with 54 votes.
