Trump 'Probably' Won't Ask SCOTUS Nominees About Roe v. Wade

  • Anti-abortion advocates rally outside of the Supreme Court during the March for Life

"Outside of war and peace, of course, the most important decision you make is the selection of a Supreme Court judge, if you get it".

"The left is going to try very hard to say this is all about overturning Roe", said Johnnie Moore, a Southern Baptist minister who was a co-chairman of the Trump campaign's evangelical advisory board. "Wade-reversal" target="_blank">The Associated Press in an interview that despite Trump's public cautioning that he won't ask potential nominees to the Supreme Court about their stance on abortion, evangelicals remain highly confident in Trump's eventual pick to fill the recent vacancy. Trump is also considering Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amul Thapar, who could become the first Indian American to serve on the Supreme Court.

Trump's interviews may begin as early as this weekend in New Jersey.

Many liberals fear that with Kennedy gone, a Trump replacement will ensure that eventually Roe v. Wade will be overturned.

The poll was conducted before Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, the Kaiser Foundation said. 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. Nominated by Republican President Ronald Reagan and confirmed in 1988, Kennedy is widely thought to be a moderate and pivotal swing vote on the court.

White House Counsel Don McGahn will be Trump's lead adviser on the pick, having successfully guided the nomination of Justice Neil Gorsuch through the selection and confirmation process a year ago, White House sources said.

I don't know who this gentlemen is-he doesn't appear to be a member of the media-but his tweet was so downtrodden and hopeless, it earned a spot.

Mr. Trump is selecting from his list of 25 conservative judges, although the list includes Sen.

NBC News previously reported that one of the front-runners, according to those involved in the process, is Brett Kavanaugh of Maryland.

"I like them all", Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One. The more significant shift on the high court, he said, would likely be the help given to conservatives in their fight for what they call religious freedom.

The complication for a Lee nomination is that if he joined the court, a Republican Senate seat would be vacated at a time when Republicans hold only a narrow 51-49 Senate majority. "As you know, there are many presidents who never get a choice", Trump said. "I love that issue if they're going to actually do that".

One thing is certain as President Donald Trump surveys prospective Supreme Court nominees: Age matters. Gorsuch cleared the Senate - only after McConnell pushed through a rules change to end the filibuster on Supreme Court nominees and lower the threshold for confirmation from 60 to a simple majority - with 54 votes.
