Trump to announce supreme court pick on 9 July

BSIP  Newscom

President Trump said Friday that he plans to make a Supreme Court pick by July 9 and will interview one or two candidates this weekend.

"It's a great group of intellectual talent", Trump said.

"What I most liked about Justice Kennedy is he did not identify with any ideological bloc on the court but rather was a justice who evaluated every case, not ideologically, but based on its merits and adherence to the law and the Constitution", Collins said. Kennedy's news that he'll leave the court next month immediately activated a network of White House aides, congressional allies and outside advocates, all set for their second Supreme Court confirmation fight in two years.

Trump told reporters Friday he would not ask potential nominees their views on abortion rights and Roe v. Wade.

He added, "I think it's inappropriate to discuss". You nominate someone who is like-minded.

In his Air Force One conversation with reporters, during the quick afternoon flight to New Jersey from Washington, Trump singled out one potential candidate for the court, Sen.

Two women are also reportedly on Trump's shortlist, including Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who is considered another frontrunner for Kennedy's seat.

Many White House allies see Brett Kavanaugh as the favorite to replace Kennedy.

"Political speeches are just that, but the next day, I'm ready to get to work", Heitkamp said in a statement following a private meeting with the president. The strength of her victory was fueled by support among Alaska women, which has become part of Murkowski's brand. Trump passed over Hardiman in favor of Neil Gorsuch, who has proven to be reliably conservative in his tenure so far and has been a key vote in numerous controversial 5-4 decisions, including the decision to uphold the president's travel ban. Mike Lee of Utah. "I actually saw him on television last night, where he said he would love the job. As you know, there are many presidents who never get a choice", Trump said.

With Gorsuch, his body of work and his writing were important, but Trump was also impressed by his educational record and his class ranking. The current record for longest service on the Supreme Court is held by William O. Douglas, who served for 36 years from 1939 to 1975. The Senate votes to confirm or deny judicial candidates for federal courts, including Supreme Court nominees.

With a little over a week before his big announcement, Trump is relishing the moment.

"Because Kennedy drifted right this term, he and Roberts shared the median spot", Epstein said. Mr Trump's ambitions mean that come 2043 his selection could still be one of the nine justices making the most important legal rulings in America.
