Trump Supreme Court pick set for July 9; two women under consideration

Trump Supreme Court pick set for July 9; two women under consideration

Trump says as many as seven candidates may be interviewed. Trump vowed to appoint anti-abortion judges who would overturn Roe v. Wade while campaigning, and his list of nominees was assembled with the help of anti-abortion, conservative legal organization the Federalist Society. He responded, "That's not a question I'll be asking".

He plans to begin interviewing possible candidates Monday but may meet with some this weekend in New Jersey. The quality of Trump's thinking about matters juridical can be gauged by his remark, during a Republican candidates debate, that his sister, a federal judge, was so conservative she had signed a "bill" that Justice Samuel Alito had signed.

"I like them all", he said.

"It comes out of nowhere in a decision upholding the travel ban case", said Elizabeth Wydra, the president of the Constitutional Accountability Center. He often sided with the liberal justices on social issues, such as the legalization of gay marriage in 2017 and a decision in 1992 that reaffirmed Roe v. Wade.

The 81-year-old Kennedy said Wednesday he is stepping down after more than 30 years on the court.

That would put a new justice in place before the congressional midterm elections in November, when all seats in the House of Representatives and a third of those in the Senate will be contested. Also attending were Republican Charles Grassley and Democrats Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly and Heidi Heitkamp.

His executive orders on the subject were challenged by the state of Hawaii and other states which said that the Trump's anti-Muslim comments showed that his policy was rooted in an animus toward Muslim people.

From her epic wedding dresses to her elevated everyday style, Meghan isn't afraid to take a few fashion risks. No one from the British royal family, including Meghan , has spoken to him since it aired, he said.

The Scalia seat was open because something at issue in 2018 - Republican control of the Senate - enabled Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to prevent consideration of President Barack Obama's nomination of a replacement, Merrick Garland. That list includes six women. "Our goal is to have a nominee that's in the mold of Justice Gorsuch", Field said, "somebody who's going to have fidelity to the Constitution, who won't legislate from the bench".

Field told USA TODAY that Koch network is "comfortable" with all the names on Trump's list.

Among other judges on the US President's nominee list are - Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania, who serves on the US Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit, Raymond Kethledge of MI, who serves on the 6th Circuit and newly confirmed federal appeals court judges Amy Coney Barrett of IN and Amul Thapar of Kentucky, as per the report.

The strategy mirrors one Mr Trump has been pursuing for appointments to the lower courts, where younger than normal judges have often been selected.

"It is exciting though, right?" said Trump.

White House aide Marc Short said on MSNBC that the White House hoped for a Senate confirmation vote in September.

Trump has made his intentions and vision for the United States very clear from the beginning. She said the group spent $10 million supporting the Gorsuch confirmation.
