Trump says he's close to making final Supreme Court decision

Elementary 6x11

President Trump has said he'll name a candidate on July 9, but many students criticized the nonexistent nominee when asked for their opinion, Phillips reported.

"Am I optimistic that [Trump is] going to nominate somebody that I would feel comfortable about?" said McCaskill. He's also had a hand in Trump's picks for lower courts; the president has gotten a whopping 21 circuit court judges confirmed since taking office and almost all were outsourced to The Federalist Society to fill.

The conservative, pro-life activist who has President Trump's ear as he decides on filling a Supreme Court vacancy predicted the nominee would be confirmed before the mid-term elections but sidestepped a question about whether the candidate would oppose Roe v. Wade.

The first two are the top contenders for the position, the report said.

The source told Reuters that Amy Coney Barrett of IN, a Trump-appointed judge on the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, was still IN contention but that the Republican president had been asking more questions about the other two, who have more extensive judicial records.

Battle lines have been drawn over the future of abortion in America on the eve of President Trump's nomination of a second justice to the USA supreme court that could put the landmark 1973 ruling Roe v Wade in jeopardy.

Leo has the powerful track record of helping to pick and confirm three of the court's conservative justices, John Roberts, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch.

"Other people, I think they just want to go along with the flow and make themselves sound intelligent and smart", he said. "So I think it's a bit of a scare tactic and rank speculation more than anything else".

"If we put another two or perhaps three justices on".

"I'll have a decision made in my mind by Sunday. I'll give you the answer", Mr Trump said.

Kavanaugh, 53, was picked by former President George W. Bush to serve on the influential Washington-based appeals court in 2003.

Blumenthal acknowledged that the Democrats have few options to stop the confirmation in the Senate, which Republicans control by a 51-49 margin, but said they would plead their case to the American public.
