Trump meets with Supreme Court contenders, two in focus

Trump meets with Supreme Court contenders, two in focus

But law "is only settled until a majority of the Supreme Court decides it is not", he noted.

Trump said he plans to interview six or seven people from his candidate list and will make an announcement of his pick on July 9. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) to oppose any candidate that would threaten to overturn Roe V. Wade. Overturning that 1973 ruling would not make abortion illegal, but it would allow individual states to ban the procedure. That judicial approach typically involves a more literal interpretation of the Constitution as compared to broader rulings such as Roe.

"A candidate for this important position who would overturn Roe v. Wade would not be acceptable to me, because that would indicate an activist agenda that I don't want to see a judge have", Collins told ABC News Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz on ABC's "This Week" Sunday.

All four names Leo mentioned are on Trump's list of potential Supreme Court justices.

It's President Donald Trump's second year in the oval office and the second time he'll be naming a Supreme Court nominee. Roe, for instance, relied on a right to privacy, which is not explicitly mentioned in the Constitution.

In the Oval Office on Monday, he said the "four potential justices" he met that morning were "incredible people in so many different ways".

First, instead of an all-glass back that could've enabled wireless charging, Google is using a glass and metal back. This shows that Google too has embraced the notched display design like the other smartphone OEMs this year.

Nelson "probably perceives that no one on that list of 25 is someone he is prepared to vote for and so it shouldn't be surprising", said Carl Tobias, a professor at the University of Richmond College of Law, who specializes in federal judicial selection. It's likely the next nominee will sidestep the matter in a similar way.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump expressly promised that overturning Roe, which legalized abortion on demand in the USA, "will happen" through his judicial nominees.

Republicans hold a slim 51-49 majority in the Senate and have enough time to confirm a candidate before the midterm elections in November, when a third of the seats in the Senate will be contested. (McCain isn't afraid to buck his own party, but he is mostly in line with his party in opposing abortion rights).

He has a litmus test for his Supreme Court nominee: end Roe v. Wade. Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia. But his step away from the day-to-day operations of the White House press shop could also signal the beginning of his exit from the White House, which Shah has been mulling in recent weeks. Nevertheless, Murkowski did vote for Justice Gorsuch previous year. "I would tell my pro-life friends: You can be pro-life and conservative, but you can also believe in 'stare decisis, '" he said, citing the legal term involving legal precedent that means "to stand by things decided".

"None of the people who are being talked about now in the public space in the media are people who have a clear position on Roe v. Wade".
