Trump Will Make Supreme Court Pick, Anthony Kennedy Successor On July 9

In Supreme Court pick, Trump can push conservative social agenda

"I've got it down to about five" candidates, including two women, Trump told reporters on Air Force One as he traveled to his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. He indicated that he may interview one or two candidates there this weekend. "I'm going to try and do something like that, but I don't think I'm going to be so specific".

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. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) said Trump was not a "king" and any nominee had to go through the U.S. Senate.

Kennedy was long thought to be the crucial swing vote on any legal challenge to Roe v. Wade, having already upheld the landmark decision in 1992. The only name Trump mentioned was U.S. Sen.

The police said those arrested were being released after they were processed. "This is far beyond politics", Jayapal said. Almost 600 people were arrested at a protest organized by Women's March in Washington , D.C.

He said Democratic senators running for reelection in conservative states, like West Virginia and in, face a "lose-lose" scenario: Risk angering their base voters by supporting Trump's pick, or vote no and harm their chances among the Republicans and moderates they still need to win. "And as you know there have been many presidents that never got a choice".

For much of his tenure, Kennedy has been the median justice, falling in the court's ideological center, according to a measure based on voting patterns.

The road to confirmation for Trump's pick is likely to be a contentious one, as Democrats are expected to push back. Asked if he planned to question potential court nominees their views on abortion rights and Roe v. Wade, he responded, "That's not a question I'll be asking". Several Democratic senators have re-election campaigns this fall in states that Trump won and are considered in jeopardy.

Sixers trade 39th pick in NBA draft to Lakers
For over a year, conventional wisdom was that George would head to Los Angeles to be a Laker when he hit free agency. The draft is only a few minutes from getting underway and there could be a little more clarity once it's over.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, is the oldest member of the current Supreme Court but has given no public hint of a retirement. However, he invited her, Donnelly and Manchin to the White House the next day to discuss the nomination process. "I said, 'Mr. President, that's your choice'".

Trump has made his intentions and vision for the United States very clear from the beginning. "I stressed the importance of nominating someone to the Supreme Court who is pragmatic, fair, compassionate, committed to justice, and above politics". "This is a line that's been drawn about whether we are going to criminalize women, whether we are going to be arresting women for making decisions about their bodies".
