President Trump Plans To Announce Supreme Court Pick On July 9

The Supreme Court

President Trump said Sunday he probably won't question prospective Supreme Court nominees about their views on the landmark abortion decision of Roe v. Wade.

"They are all saying don't do that".

Trump picked Gorsuch to replace Antonin Scalia for a lifetime job on the Supreme Court in January 2017, and now must nominate someone to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. "You shouldn't do that", Trump said. As the Post reports, Trump "also wants to see a portfolio of solid academic writing, though this adviser acknowledged Trump does not care to read it; he simply wants to know it exists". At one point, he said he would probably interview six or seven candidates, including possibly two this weekend. I have been really impressed with how he conducted this process.

When Trump campaigned for the presidency, he was adamant about his stance on abortion rights.

It said negotiations aimed to reach a cease-fire as well as have rebels hand over their heavy weapons then later their light weapons.

"A big week, especially with our numerous victories in the Supreme Court". President Ronald Reagan appointed Kennedy, but the justice was considered a swing vote during his time on the bench.

"I hope they keep thinking about it because they're going to get beaten so badly".

"We have to pick a great one", Trump said at a North Dakota rally on Wednesday.

Trump's initial short list of 25 names of potential nominees was largely handpicked by The Federalist Society, an influential group of conservative lawyers. There are allegedly five candidates to fill the seat, including two women.
