Trump spoke with 3 more Supreme Court candidates

Sen. Susan Collins R-Maine said Sunday that any judge who wants to overturn Roe v. Wade has an"activist agenda

Before his selection past year of Neil Gorsuch to replace deceased justice Antonin Scalia, Trump interviewed multiple candidates including Thomas M Hardiman, who serves on the third circuit court of appeals alongside Trump's sister, Maryanne Trump Barry. He met Monday with four federal appeals court judges: Brett M. Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, Amul R. Thapar and Raymond Kethledge, according to multiple media reports. "We're going to give you a great one".

"A candidate who would overturn Roe would not be acceptable", said Collins, "because I believe that they have demonstrated a disrespect for the vital principle of stare decisis".

President Donald Trump promised during his campaign to appoint "pro-life justices" who would overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.

President Trump is expected to reveal his nominee next week. Last week she also described Roe as "settled law" to CBS, declining to say whether she would protect the law by voting against a judge who aims to overturn it.

Shah will take leave from the position of Trump's Deputy Principal Press Secretary to concentrate on getting the President's nominee through the Senate approval process, White House Spokesperson Sarah Sanders said.

This year, however, even the Court's anxiously awaited rulings on the Trump administration's "travel ban", the free-speech rights of crisis pregnancy centers, the constitutionality of partisan gerrymandering, and the ability of public-sector unions to require financial support from non-members faded quickly from the conversation.

Sri Srinivasan, a judge on the DC circuit court of appeals, came closest to be named but lost in one-to-one toss up in 2016, when President Barack Obama went with Merrick Garland, whose nomination was blocked by a Republican-controlled USA senate.

"I had a very, very interesting morning", Trump said as he greeted visiting Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Oval Office.

"I actually saw him on television last night, where he said he would love the job".

The concern that Trump's nominee would be a rubber stamp and not an independent voice led U.S. Sen.

The senator has a few times threatened to withhold his vote on key Trump priorities citing ideological disagreements, most recently the nomination of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Susan Collins - a potentially pivotal Supreme Court confirmation vote.

"The bottom line: Judge Barrett has given every indication that she will be an activist judge on the court", Schumer said. Most prominent in people's minds is the decision in Roe v Wade, which ruled that state laws against abortion violated a constitutional right to privacy.

All three also voted for Trump's first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch. But he told reporters Friday that he would not question potential high-court nominees about their views on abortion, saying it was "inappropriate to discuss".
