Big week: Trump, ahead of USA top court judge pick

Big week: Trump, ahead of USA top court judge pick”

"We're not assuming this is just going to be a straight party-line vote", Mr. McConnell said. "And probably not. They're all saying, 'Don't do that, you don't do that, you shouldn't do that, ' but I'm putting conservative people on".

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. In the same interview, which was taped Friday at the White House, the president said that he has been advised not to ask potential nominees about where they stand on Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 ruling on abortion.

He said he is "very proud" of his successful nomination of conservative Justice Neil M. Gorsuch a year ago.

Trump himself described Supreme Court nominee selection as the most important decision he can make "outside of war and peace".

Firstly, Trump has said he wants an "extraordinarily well qualified" nominee with sterling credentials on his or her resume. Among the candidates he's considering are two women, and he told reporters that he might meet with candidates over a golf weekend.

But the opening on the court will allow Trump to choose a conservative justice who is more likely to side with its four other justices consistently, strengthening the right-leaning majority on the bench.

On Sunday, Trump seemed to reaffirm that belief, telling Fox News that abortion "could very well end up with states at some point". You know, ICE, these are the guys that go in and take MS-13 and take them out because they are much tougher than MS-13, like by a factor of 10.and these are the ones.
